If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be up against a powerful business or large corporation that wants to minimize or completely deny your rightful compensation for medical expenses and other losses. At Shaffer Law, we have earned a reputation as one California’s leading personal injury law firms. That means we take on the insurance companies and big corporations so that our clients can get the compensation they need to move forward. Because we are selective about the cases we take, we are able to devote our total attention to helping our clients in their time of need.
The cases that Mr. Shaffer agrees to undertake are often complex and typically involve catastrophic injuries or death. In his more than 30 years of legal practice, he has represented hundreds of injury victims, and he has personally litigated to verdict more than 60 catastrophic injury cases. His work has been prominently featured in many publications, including Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and California’s top legal publication, The Los Angeles Daily Journal. He is an Associate with the American Board of Trial Advocates, and he has also been nominated as Trial Lawyer of the Year, honored each year by Super Lawyers from 2009 – 2021, selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the United States, and recognized by U.S. News & World Report Best Lawyers®.
