Managing Partner

Why retain us?

Each of the three attorneys at Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, is a partner in the firm and has the education, training, and experience necessary to handle your personal injury or wrongful death case.  When you retain us, we personally work on your case.  We do not assign your case to an inexperienced associate.  From start to finish, we handle each and every aspect of your case, providing our clients personal service.

We are very proud of our successful results and our professional reputation.  Our partners are well represented in the major peer-reviewed organizations such as the American Board of Trial Advocates, American College of Trial Lawyers, International Society of Barristers, and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.  We also are extremely active in the local and state voluntary bar organizations.  Our impressive winning record and devotion to integrity is well known in the legal community.

The partners at Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, have the jury trial experience that is necessary to properly evaluate and resolve major personal injury and wrongful death cases.  Our opponents know we will take your case to trial, if necessary, in any county in the State of California, to ensure that you obtain the compensation you deserve.

We are very selective in the cases we accept, which allows us to take fewer cases and give our clients and their cases the personal attention they need.  We promptly return telephone call. We still believe in the old fashion motto that the “client comes first.”  We remain dedicated to obtaining full compensation for our clients.

Referral fees

Since 1984, Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, has handled major personal injury matters almost exclusively on cases referred to our firm from other attorneys across California and the United States in all practice disciplines, including personal injury attorneys who recognize our ability to provide the best possible representation in the case and to maximize the recovery for our clients.  The California State Bar authorizes referral fees to attorneys with the written consent of the client.  Over the years, we have been a trusted referral partner by attorneys and have paid multi-millions of dollars in referral fees.  If you are an attorney who does not handle personal injury cases or if you have a case that requires additional experience and the resources that we can offer, consider referring the case to us and we will be pleased to enter into a referral fee arrangement.  Let us help maximize your clients’ recovery.
