Successfully recovered $12 million in a car accident case

Chris Montes de Oca

I devote my time and resources to providing the highest level of legal advocacy possible for those who suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to the negligent, careless or unlawful acts of others.

Throughout my career, I have helped secure millions of dollars in settlements and awards for those adversely affected by car accidents, commercial truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, ride share accidents and other similar claims of negligence.

I am also one of the few personal injury attorneys in the state to have secured a jury award of over $12 million.

I love what I do and work hard to make my clients my top priority. My goal is to provide the highest quality legal services to you. I’m committed to protect and advance your legal rights while providing you with personal and effective service. My work speaks for itself. That’s why most of my cases are referrals from past clients. I believe this is the highest honor an attorney can receive.

I was one of the youngest attorneys to be admitted to the State Bar of California. I am bilingual in Spanish and the former President of the Long Beach Barristers Bar Association. I am one of the few attorneys to have a verdict over ten million dollars.

I’m proud to hold a perfect rating on AVVO as well as an AV Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell, and The National Trial Lawyers named him as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the country as well as one of the Top 40 Under 40.

Let me help you achieve legal success with honesty and integrity. I look forward to talking with you and to discuss how my team and I can help. Please contact us today for a free confidential consultation so that we can begin to take care of you.
