Personal Injury Attorneys
There were lots of requests for lawyer referrals, so I'll give
a few for each category (I'm a lapsed lawyer and keep in touch,
to some extent, with the fields requested)
These are firms with good reputations (they may only take ''big''
cases and/or may assign smaller cases to newer attorneys):
Gwilliam Ivary Chiosso Cavalli - Oakland - 832-5411
Boxer & Gerson - Oakland - 835-8870
Walkup Melodia - SF - 415-981-7210
An individual I know who is reputable and experienced:
Sally Kilburg - Oakland - 482-5331
I can't vouch for results, of course, but the recommendations
are of people/firms I know.
Hello; I was recently involved in a hit and run accident, and
the person who hit me has left my vehicle (through no fault of
my own!) with considerably less resale value than it had before
the accident. I am seeking the consulation (and potentially the
services) of a personal injury attorney who might be able to
have the person at fault actually pay for this decrease in
value, rather than having it come out of my pocket when I try to
sell the car. I have searched the website but did not see any
recent reommendations for a personal injury attorney. Can anyone
recommend someone, in Berkeley or Oakland? (or, persons to
avoid?) Thanks so much,
Signed: Auto hit by someone who left the scene...

Having searched the archives for a personal injury attorney and found nothing of use I am
posting a request for a recommendation for same. (I broke my ankle/fibula after a fall while
walking in Kensington with infant in stroller and older child in hand. I tripped over a buckled
sidewalk and have been in a leg and foot cast since March 31. I am still barely able to walk
and have a long way to go to recovery. If anyone has had a similar experience and/or has a
recommendation for an attorney, I would appreciate hearing from you.
I would recommend Brenda Morrissey who works in the law offices of Stephen Cornet.
They're located on Grand Ave in Oakland. 510 465 6264. I had a very similar incident,
and found both Brenda and Stephen very helpful.
Call Joel Siegel in SF. His number is 415-777-5547. I'm sure he will make an East Bay
house call, considering your injuries, and I know he can help you. Best of luck.
Please consider NOT suing. If you had fallen in Tilden park or on your own land, you
wouldn't try to blame anyone. A suit can bring great hardship and heartache. It
promotes a mindset in which others are always at fault rather than one of personal
responsibility. You have an opportunity to model this for your children now.
I highly recommend Barbara Cohen, Cohen & Gough, for plaintiff personal
injury work. She's smart, hard working, very effective and honest. Her # is
832-5800. Her office is near Jack London Square in Oakland (2d & Webster, I
In response to Jonathan's inquiry re a lawyer for his car accident,
I would like to recommend a good friend, Cliff Weingus, a personal injury
lawyer. Not only is he a nice person and an effective lawyer, he is very
principled. He can be reached at:
McTernan, Stender, Walsh, Weingus, & Tondreau
333 Market Street, Suite 2800
