What distinguishes your law firm from others?

In addition to obtaining the best possible results and compensation our clients deserve, we also embrace our clients and place an emphasis on giving them access to the best medical care and rehabilitation facilities so they not only recovery physically, but also emotionally. When it comes to our clients, we are patient, understanding, and compassionate. We understand that most of you have questions and concerns. We are here to answer each question and address all concerns. We will take the time to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision and assist you every step of the way to get your life back on track. Each case is assigned to an attorney to handle and oversee the process, a case manager to make sure the client needs are addressed at all times, and a team to make sure our clients can speak with a live person at all times. Our goal is to remove the stress of the case from you, so you can focus on treating your injuries and begin your road to recovery. When you first contact our office, you will immediately see why many of our current clients are referred by other clients. We do everything in our power to help you feel at ease discussing the legal issues involved in your case, and we strive to adhere to our mission of maintaining constant open and honest dialogue with our clients. It starts at the top: Ryan believes in maintaining an “open door” policy, because he knows that making himself available to his clients and their families is the key element to effective representation.

What are your firm's strengths and style?

Our attorneys have successfully interacted with thousands of insurance companies on behalf of our clients, always maintaining professionalism when negotiating settlements and pursuing trials. We have an advantage over other Los Angeles injury attorneys because we have experience working directly with insurance claims adjusters. This inside information about how personal injury claims are evaluated has earned our firm a reputation for obtaining favorable settlements in cases that other attorneys refuse to handle.

Mitch was born and raised in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, and as such brings the “Philadelphia Lawyer” to California. Mitch enjoys working through the nuances of each case, uncovering details that are not obvious and often missed by others, but vital to the client’s case. Most of all he loves to argue, this is a trait inculcated into him since birth by his parents. While working for his mentor in Philly, he learned all of the tricks and games that lawyers play.

Since moving to California, Mitch has represented clients in automobile, truck, and motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, premises liability, improper security, battery, dog bites, railroad accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice and product liability cases. These cases have included substantial settlements including some over 7 figures. He has tried automobile accident cases, slip and falls and premises liability cases and represented clients in immigration matters. He is admitted to the California State Bar, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of CA and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of CA. He is also a Member of Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
He has worked as an immigration lawyer for a non-profit giving back the community and served as CEO of a technology company and various non-profit boards. He has a strong interest in technology and health and has a patent pending for a health device. Whatever he does he always gives a 100 percent and that means he will fight for you to ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
