Many of our cases involve personal injury and wrongful death claims due to the fault of others. We have a long and successful track record of litigating cases involving bicyclists, motorcycle riders, car drivers, and pedestrians injured or killed by cars, trucks, and other vehicles. We represent MUNI riders and other passengers injured while using public transportation. We also represent individuals who suffered lacerations, fractures, concussions, or spinal injuries from unsafe premises and property conditions or dog attacks.
We have an active and wide ranging employment law practice on behalf of employees in discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful retaliation and termination, and whistleblower (False Claims Act) cases.
We represent families whose loved ones were harmed or neglected at a senior or nursing facility (elder abuse) or school (student child abuse). Our clients include individuals seriously injured by law enforcement officers in police brutality and excessive force cases. Finally, we have an active practice for LGBT persons denied their equal rights.
