Southern California Personal Injury Lawyers
A personal injury can have a devastating impact on your life. It could ruin you financially, tear your world apart, and cause untold pain and suffering. These terrible outcomes aren’t guaranteed, however. With the help of experienced and dedicated lawyers you can be assured to get the best legal representation, and enough compensation to meet the challenges of your injury head-on and conquer them. At Machtinger Law, we are passionate about helping our clients get the very best legal result when they’ve been injured by the negligence of another. Here is how we do it:
We Have Experience Handling the Toughest Cases
Our firm’s lead attorney, John Machtinger, has over 30 years of experience as a lawyer and litigator, including handling complex business litigation and prosecuting criminals as a volunteer Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney. For more than 12 years, Mr. Machtinger has been exclusively representing accident victims and families who suffered the most serious and catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, and helping them achieve significant results.
We Limit the Cases We Take So We Can Focus on Yours
Many personal injury law firms operate on volume and turnover. They have hundreds of active cases going at any given time, and can’t devote the time needed to get the best result in every case. Those firms are quick to settle a case the minute an offer comes along that is good enough to take so they can move on to the next case. We don’t think “good enough” is an acceptable phrase when you are dealing with a serious or catastrophic injury or the loss of a loved one. Our team takes the time to investigate, research, and put in the hours and effort it takes to get a result that meets your needs.
We Are Trial Lawyers Who Can Handle Your Case
At Machtinger Law, we are trial lawyers, and we are proud to say it. Most personal injury cases settle without the need to have a trial, but we prepare every case with trial in mind. We start working on cases immediately after the injury, and, because we prepare for trial, we are also in the best position to settle when it is in our clients’ best interests. We’ve settled many cases on the eve of trial, and we’ve successfully taken many cases to verdict as well. Although he is a solid trial lawyer in his own right, John Machtinger has worked with the top trial lawyers in Southern California and is able to hand-pick the best trial counsel as needed in the largest and most challenging cases.
We Believe In What We Do
John Machtinger practices law with a strong sense of justice. That’s why he volunteered his time to work in the District Attorney’s office, and that’s why he changed his law practice from representing corporations in business disputes to representing serious injury victims and their families. Fighting for justice for the injured is what makes John Machtinger eager to go to work every day, and it is the guiding principle behind Machtinger Law.
We Believe in You
At Machtinger Law, we understand that you are going through what may be the most difficult time in your life, and that you might be feeling lost and alone or unsure about what to do. We approach our clients with sympathy and compassion, and we go out of our way to make sure they are comfortable with the legal process.
