Law Offices of Norman M. Finkelstein, APC

Experienced San Diego Attorney for Victims of Catastrophic Injury

Firm Overview

If you have suffered serious injury, your primary concern is regaining your health. While you struggle with medical complications, or a complex government and insurance bureaucracy, you may put off pursuing a claim for compensation. Please, don't make that mistake! I founded the Law Offices of Norman M. Finkelstein, APC in 1983 to assist clients just like you, who need a reliable attorney to take on the burden of pursuing justice while you concentrate on getting well. I can assist you in cases involving:
Personal injury
Nursing home negligence
Medical malpractice

Compassionate and professional
My practice has been devoted to vulnerable parties whose trust was betrayed and who were severely hurt as a result. Whether it's a senior victimized by a nursing home, or a patient who consented to a doctor's treatment only to be harmed, my cases affect me deeply, and motivate me to seek restitution. However, I have always adhered to a strict code of ethics, seeking cordial relations even with opponents, a practice which has won me the approval of my peers as one of a small group of attorneys who are AV Preeminent Peer Review RatedSM by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest industry standard for demonstrating outstanding legal ability and ethics.

Resourceful and determined
You may believe that the more serious your injury, the more likely you'll be compensated. That is not necessarily the case. You not only have to prove you've been harmed you have to prove another party is at fault. And that other party will be zealously defended by the insurance company which would have to pay out.

This is why it's so important to retain an attorney with the experience to hit the ground running, who will move quickly to preserve evidence, including witness testimony while memories are fresh. I have accumulated a record of success over 28 years of advocating for injured clients and getting results. In that time, I've developed the resources to take on the large litigation firms hired by the insurance companies. Let me fight and win for you.
