Two of Northern California’s heavy hitters in the courtroom have joined forces to better serve your case.

Personal Injury Litigation

Each year, millions of people in the United States are injured in accidents. Many of these unfortunate accidents are caused by the preventable carelessness or even malicious intent of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering.

Civil Litigation & Civil Rights

Individuals and businesses often find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. These disputes, often deemed to be a breach of contract, typically become matters resolved through civil litigation, which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication.

Criminal Defense

When you are charged with a crime, regardless of the outcome of the case, society tends to view you in a negative light. Our criminal defense firm, however, takes a very different approach; we base our mission on the ideal that each accused person is innocent until proven guilty.

  • My Corporation hired Trina to resolve a couple of civil matters for us, because we were told that she was “the best you can get”. Trina exceeded her reputation. She proved to be very knowledgeable, competent and passionate about her work. I am thankful to have such wonderful representation and we are always referring her to anyone that needs a good attorney.

  • Look no further. This is the lawyer you need. Gil walked my family through a difficult situation. He understands the emotional grief that comes along when you’re facing charges. He represented us in court with skill and professionalism. Very personable lawyer, I hope my family never again needs legal counsel, but if we do Gilbert Somera will be the first person we contact.

  • Armando is by far the greatest attorney out there. If I could give him 5 stars I would. He was my lawyer for a criminal defense I was being charged with a lot of felonies and walked away with nothing. Armando got everything dismissed. I highly recommend Armando for anyone in need of a lawyer.
