Erik Zograbian, Esq., the firm’s managing partner, is a graduate of University of California, Santa Barbara, (B.A., with honors, 2003) and Loyola Law School (J.D., cum laude and order of the coif 2006). Mr. Zograbian began his legal career working for an insurance defense firm representing insurance companies. However, Erik soon realized that his work was merely padding the pockets of the insurance companies, and not ensuring that injured people were fairly compensated. Thus, Erik left the insurance defense firm and joined a small plaintiff’s firm handling a wide variety of cases representing consumers, including personal injury, employment and insurance bad faith. It was working for this small plaintiff’s firm where Erik discovered his passion and learned what he wanted to do with the rest of his legal career, which was to represent injured people against insurance companies with the personal and passionate attention that each case deserves. Upon, founding the firm, one of the first initiatives he put in place is care calls, which meant that every client was going to get a call at least every 30 days if not sooner to check up on them, to see how the injuries, treatment or life itself was going. This enabled the firm to know what was going on in their clients’ life after the injury and make sure that the clients were getting the appropriate treatment and care and most importantly let every client know what is going on with their case.
Erik has learned that only through personal attention can an attorney build trust with the client, understand the client’s loss, and empathize with the client’s personal story. Erik’s diverse background has given him a unique understanding of both sides of the equation. He currently focuses his practice on litigating cases involving catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, motor carrier liability, insurance bad faith, business torts and public entity liability on behalf of injured individuals.
