Experience Matters

loved-ones2Experience matters. Of course, you need a lawyer who knows the law, but you also need someone who has the experience necessary to give informed counsel. Estes and Smith have extensive experience litigating serious injuries and accident claims related to motor vehicle accidents, including but not limited to commercial truck accidents, construction site equipment accidents, tour bus accidents and aviation accidents. They have won substantial settlements and verdicts for past clients.

When it comes to personal injury law, it is also important to be represented by a lawyer with an established reputation for preparing for trial from the outset. Even if it never goes to trial, making your case trial-ready is the best way to obtain a fair settlement.

Firm partners, Jeffrey E. Estes and Alton J. Smith, have been practicing personal injury law for more than 25 years. They prepare all cases for trial and are willing to challenge court rulings when necessary.  Both attorneys are California Super Lawyer Selectees and have the highest Martindale-Hubbell rating, which is AV Preeminent.  Attorney Smith is past President of American Board of Trial Advocates-Orange County (ABOTA).

Work With An Attorney — Not A Paralegal Or Assistant

Jeffrey E. Estes & Associates, APC, values maintaining regular contact with clients. From the initial intake to discovery, and from pretrial motions on to the trial, settlement or other course of action, you can expect to work directly with the accident lawyer San Diego assigned to your case.

The premier benefit of consistent client involvement is that it ensures that the case is directed according to your objectives — not the lawyer’s. Attorneys Jeff E. Estes and Alton J. Smith work hard to make sure that clients understand the pros and cons to any given course of action, and they give legal counsel scaled to address the specific concerns of each client.
