North Bay Wildfires

Are you entitled to compensation for injuries, property loss or loss of a loved one in the 2017 fires?

Many people in Sonoma and Napa Counties lost their homes and personal property in the October 2017 fires, and some tragically lost their lives. Many local residents have suffered physical and emotional injuries. There has been speculation that PG&E negligently caused or contributed to the fires by failing to keep lines clear and by failing to respond appropriately once the fires began.

CAL FIRE Investigation

CAL FIRE is investigating the causes of all the fires and their report will be a critical piece to determining whether PG&E was negligent and their negligence caused harm to particular homeowners.

Guard Your Rights

Attorneys from around the country are descending on our community to try to sign up potential clients harmed by the fires. Be wary of anyone who promises that they can get you money – it is simply too early to know.

I have been practicing in Sonoma County for over 19 years and prior to that represented clients all over the country from offices in Washington, DC. I have experience representing people with housing issues, consumer claims, personal injury and wrongful death. I handle individual cases, class actions and coordinated proceedings.

Most recently, I was co-counsel for a record $2.7 million settlement for 36 tenants in a Sonoma County case involving substandard rental housing. Read the Press Democrat article here. I fight hard for the rights of North Bay residents and care about their families, wellbeing and dignity.
