Our California wildfire attorneys are here to help you through this difficult time.

Why do I need an attorney?

When utilities and their contractors wrongfully cause fire and damage to others, they also use their immense resources to fight hard to limit payouts to everyone who experienced damages or injury. Our wildfire attorneys aggressively litigate to show that the company is responsible and to assess the real worth of your damages and distress as a result of this catastrophic case.

Do I need to pay an attorney to help me?
You ‘re not giving us a dollar out of your wallet. We get paid the agreed percentage of any recovery we obtain on your behalf. We pay all the costs of the case on your behalf, and you don’t pay anything unless we get the money back for you. (No out-of-pocket expenses, we don’t get paid unless you win.)
If I have insurance why should I join?
You may be under-insured for this accident, or the insurance provider may refuse the full amount you think you are entitled to recover. Insurance providers most frequently refuse to compensate you for the distress you have experienced. As a result, we fight to ensure that those responsible for causing the fire pay the difference and ensure that you are fully compensated for the loss you have suffered.
What if I do not have insurance?

California law permits recovery for both uninsured and insured victims. If the damage has been caused by the negligent or reckless action of a company and you have been affected, otherwise you have the right to be reimbursed and we will work hard to get you the reimbursement.

What if I rented my house?

Renters that lose all their belongings in a fire usually have substantial personal property losses. It is expensive to replace the furniture, kitchenware, clothes, and other things that we continue to accumulate over a lifetime. Renters may seek intangible damages due to the pain and distress incurred by the fire.
