What sets Shea & Shea - A Professional Law Corporation apart?

Each of our lawyers is highly committed to delivering 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, which means 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. To put it another way, if we don’t win, you don’t pay! If you are ready to discuss your case with our firm, please call us at (408) 883-3863 today.
