What Our Clients Say

“When I was hit by a car while I was riding my bike, David and the staff at his law firm were committed to assisting me throughout the legal process. They handled all of the paperwork and headache with the insurance companies. This allowed me to focus on recovering from my injuries without the added stress of communicating with the insurance companies. When the insurance company denied my claim, David, continued to work closely with me and guide me through the process of appealing this decision. He was actively committed to pursuing my case even though it became more complicated. He was very thorough, communicative, and reliable throughout the process. The staff, Mynita and Cami were always responsive when I had questions and it was clear that they were familiar with my case (I wasn’t just a random anonymous person in a big stack of files! They knew me!). I highly recommend him as a personal injury attorney. I think you will also find that he is passionate about his work and about fighting for his clients.”

“I was involved in a major auto accident and after concluding my medical treatment I tried to settle the case with the insurance company for the guilty party. After some discussions I felt they were being unfair and that they were low balling me. I spoke with Mr. Smith who felt quite strongly that indeed, the insurance company was trying to pay less than what was fair. The case went to litigation and on a number of occasions the insurance company tried to negotiate what we felt was an unfair settlement. In the end Mr. Smith forced them to pay the entire limits of the insurance policy. While it took longer than we had hoped, Mr. Smith stayed with it until we obtained the best possible result.”

“My husband was very seriously injured in a bus accident and for a number of months he was incapacitated so it was left to me to try and handle his affairs. At my first meeting with Mr. Smith he answered all of my questions and others I hadn’t even thought of. He helped us every step of the way and kept us fully informed throughout the process. He obtained a favorable settlement for us that we were certainly satisfied with. I continue to recommend him to anyone I know who is looking for a lawyer who specializes in personal injury or wrongful death. “

—S.K. San Leandro, CA

“I was injured in two separate automobile accidents which were two years apart. In addition to the injuries sustained in those accidents I had other serious medical problems which made both cases much more complicated. Patiently and professionally Mr. Smith navigated both accident claims with four different insurance companies and obtained total settlements for both cases that we were very happy with.”
