Founded by a family of attorneys spanning three generations, our Los Angeles-based firm has been negotiating and trying cases to jury verdict on behalf of plaintiffs for over three decades.

Results-oriented lawyers handling product liability claims

Manufacturers, retailers and distributors owe consumers a duty of care when it comes to their products. When an e-cigarette explodes, an airbag discharges deadly shrapnel upon inflation, or a company fails to warn you about potential side effects from using their products, you could be entitled to compensation for your losses and injuries. A Los Angeles product liability lawyer from our firm can help you make a claim for damages.
