About Us

We practice in the Central Valley of California, where lawyers and judges still know each other. We have a well deserved reputation for high quality work that has earned us the AV preeminent law firm rating with Martindale Hubbell, a distinction given to only five percent of firms nationwide.

We are a small firm concentrating on civil litigation, whether defending or prosecuting claims. Our lawyers range in experience from ten years to forty; we are not a training ground for new lawyers. Our staff is likewise exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable.

Cases are as unique as the parties and circumstances involved. We recognize the importance of each case to our clients. Our clients are able to talk to their lawyer directly and at the same time benefit from the combined resources and expertise of everyone in the office.

See our Practice Areas to get a description of the more common subject areas of the cases handled by us as well as information relating to our geographic service area. For information relating to the individual attorneys and staff, see the Attorneys and Staff areas of this website.
