- Mark B. O'Connor joined our firm in 2001 after 15 years of practice with a prominent civil litigation firm, where he developed valuable experience with complex personal injury litigation from the insurance defense perspective. Today, his practice emphasizes complex brain and spinal cord injury cases on behalf of our injured clients, and he is also primarily responsible for the firm's successful appellate practice.

Each of our lawyers is highly committed to prompt and attentive client service. In the complex injury cases we handle, many clients and their families rely on us to help them get diagnostic tests, treatment, or therapeutic services that their own insurers resist covering. We represent clients from all over California, and we also try complex brain injury cases originating in other states such as Nevada, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington. We accept cases on a contingent fee basis, and we advance the often substantial expenses involved in proving your claims at our own risk. In other words, we only collect attorneys' fees and recover our expenses when we successfully recover money for you, either through settlement or at trial.
