About Us

The attorneys at Golden State Lawyers, APC have dedicated over 40 years to representing people injured or damaged because of the fault of others. Being a plaintiff in a personal injury case without quality representation can be stressful and confusing.  This is especially true if you are still recovering from physical injuries and accumulating medical expenses and lost wages. Our experienced attorneys provide you with legal advice and representation tailored to your specific personal injury. We can even help you find the right medical treatment when needed.

Our Practice Areas

We represent those who have been wrongfully injured as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing. Our firm never represents parties accused of harming others. We handle all types of injury cases, including car accidents, defective products, unsafe premises, elder abuse, railroad accidents, construction site accidents and unfair or bad faith treatment by insurance companies.

We have successfully prosecuted cases against the largest auto, tire and chemical manufacturers, utility companies and other defendants both large and small.  Over the years we have recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients including recoveries as high as $45 million.  You can learn more about our attorneys by clicking the link below.

Our Philosophy

The attorneys at Golden State Lawyers, APC believe in securing maximum recovery for our clients while giving them the respect and personalized attention they deserve. The dedicated professionalism of our staff frees up the attorneys to prepare and present your case in a highly skilled and expert manner.   However, our attorneys are always accessible if necessary to answer your questions directly.  Our dedication to client service results in many new clients being referred to Golden State Lawyers by former clients and other attorneys. On occasion people who have served as jurors in our trials have later sought representation by us.

We also believe in full and fair compensation for all damages caused by another party’s negligence.  If the responsible parties do not make reasonable settlement offers, we are ready and willing to go to trial. Because of our extensive trial experience, we have received multiple six and seven figure jury verdicts.


Most people know that retaining a lawyer can be very expensive. Unlike large corporations or independently wealthy individuals, the majority of people who need representation do not have the money to pay for a good lawyer out of their own pockets. We realize that many of the people we represent have lost (or are losing) income due to their injuries and may also have large medical bills to pay. This only makes it harder for someone to afford an attorney. We charge nothing for our consultations. We work on a “contingency fee” basis. That means if we successfully obtain a recovery for you, then we are paid a portion of that recovery. Conversely, if we do not obtain a recovery for you, we receive no payment.

Additionally, we typically advance all costs of handling the case for you and are reimbursed from the recovery – like an interest-free loan. We are able to do this because of our history of success, our confidence in our abilities and the special people we are fortunate to represent.
