The Law Office of Michael J. Fitzpatrick


Dedicated to serving the injured, the families of those who have lost loved ones in accidents, victims of elder abuse and neglect, and consumers subjected to unfair insurance practices.

Since 1984 I have specialized in representing plaintiffs in civil litigation in both state and federal courts all over the State of California . I have also represented clients in association with local counsel in Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Washington. Consultations are always free and without obligation, and most cases I accept are handled on a contingent fee basis (ie.,there is no fee unless there is a successful outcome to your case). Call me with your questions, and I would be happy to speak with you about your legal problem without charging you a fee.

I take great pride in representing honest people who need an able, ethical and compassionate lawyer who understands their legal problems as well as their human concerns. I do my best to de-mystify the legal process so that my clients understand the issues involved in their case,and to educate them so they can make intelligent decisions in these important matters.

My job is to serve you and to maximize your chance of obtaining fair and adequate compensation for your loss, given the unique circumstances of your case. While I cannot promise miracles, I can pledge to always work professionally and diligently for you, and to ensure that you understand what I am doing, and why I am doing it.
