Experienced Personal Injury Firm Exclusively Devoted to the Injured

Since 1992, attorney Scott Righthand and our team of lawyers have helped people recover for injuries caused by defective products or dangerous prescription drugs, auto accidents, medical negligence and property injuries. We are aggressive litigators who actively pursue favorable outcomes for clients located all throughout the San Francisco Bay Area who have been injured in a wide range of personal injuries.

When we take on a case, our clients can expect only a lawyer to handle the case from start to finish, beginning with the filing of the initial complaint through settlement or trial.

We aim to learn as much about their clients and situation as possible right from the get-go. We work with experts to help investigate what happened and carefully review police reports, witness statements, insurance claims and medical findings — all before even thinking about negotiating a settlement with the adjuster.

If a successful settlement cannot be reached, we have the knowledge, experience and willingness to litigate the matter in court if necessary in order to secure the maximum compensation available for their clients and their families.
