Years of Trial Experience
Our founder Alex Ozols started out his career practicing criminal defense. He was a trial lawyer at heart and that is where he knew he could get the most experience. When he started Ozols Law Firm, he knew it was something he could use as a tool to help people in need. After a couple years working for some of the most successful firms in San Diego, he started his own firm. From there on out things started to move quickly. Mr. Ozols has obtained not guilty verdicts on some of the most serious cases in California. One of his biggest accomplishments was obtaining two not guilty verdicts, on two different cases, in two different courthouses, in only 8 days total. A feat that not many lawyers in California can claim.
Mr. Ozols is a born trial lawyer, and because of his amazing trial results, the word spread fast. In 2013 Mr. Ozols was featured in Attorney Journal Magazine as the “Rising Star”, and then re featured in 2014 with the caption “Bringing A little Bit of Hollywood to San Diego”. Attorney Journal Magazine loved the big city flare that Mr. Ozols brought to all of his cases.
In 2015 Mr. Ozols became a television legal analyst for Fox News, One America News Network, CBS 8 News, and NBC. In 2016 he handled the most highly publicized murder case in San Diego history. He was featured on Crime Watch Daily for his involvement in this case. In 2017 Mr. Ozols became a television legal analyst for CNN, CBS National News and multiple local San Diego news networks. At this point in his career Mr. Ozols is one of the most well-known attorneys in San Diego.
After conquering the criminal law world Mr. Ozols realized that he needed to do more to help people and that is when he realized the best way to do that was to handle personal injury cases. From car accidents to wrongful death, he has been involved in all types of personal injury cases. His amazing trial results are something that his co-counsel and the insurance companies take into consideration when looking at settling a case. He has taken everything that he has learned and is now able to use that when negotiating settlements for his clients. A couple recent awards Mr. Ozols has obtained include:
- Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America – National Trial Lawyers Association
- Top 40 under 40 – American Society of Legal Advocates
- Top 10 Attorneys in California Under 40 – National Academy of Attorneys
- Super Lawyers – Super Lawyers Magazine (less than 2.5% of attorneys in California)
- Best of the Bar – San Diego Business Journal
- 10.0 Superb – Avvo.com
Aggressive Negotiators on your side
When negotiating a large settlement you don’t want someone who is going to back down to the insurance companies or to other lawyers, you want someone who is going to stand up for you and not stop until they win the case. At Personal Injury Lawyers San Diego we have attorneys that have negotiated large settlements with great results. We also have attorneys that have negotiated murder and manslaughter cases with some of the most experienced district attorneys in San Diego. You only want the best on your side.
Hire someone who has negotiated for someone’s life before, not someone who is just going to see you as another number to deal with. People often wonder in these situations “should I get a lawyer” and we always tell them, “let us do the work for you”. Essentially anyone could handle a personal injury case. It takes negotiating with the insurance companies, filing paperwork and the proper documentation and following up on the case when necessary. At Personal Injury Lawyers San Diego we have experts in this field who have been doing this for years and know exactly how to do it, to get you the best possible result.
Awarded San Diego Lawyers
Our attorneys at our firm are awarded lawyers by well-known national associations. Our Lawyers have been named “Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America” and even to the list of “Super Lawyers” which is a publication that takes only the top 2.5 percent of lawyers in California and puts them on a list together. These are awards that cannot be bought and generally only given after a long process of reviews by groups of established attorneys.
Trusted Personal Injury Lawyers in the the San Diego Community
Our lawyers are well known in the legal community and have spent years building relationships with other attorneys. For example one of our supervising lawyers is commonly referred to as “the north county lawyer” because he is so well known in the Vista courthouse and all the surrounding north county areas. Relationships are important in this area of law because that is what can get us a better deal for our client in the end.
Having an attorney that is not feared by the insurance companies is like not having an attorney at all. How do you get someone to be feared by the insurance companies? You need a lawyer that has a proven trial record and is not afraid to take the case to trial if needed. When a lawyer takes a case to trial, and the insurance company needs to pay out more than expected, this creates a buzz and gets everyone talking. In these types of situations, the insurance companies will want to settle all cases in the future and settle them fast because they do not want to get to the point of trial again where they are paying out more than they ever expected.
The Personalized Approach
Too many lawyers these days are outsourcing out their work to less well-known legal professionals and that makes us sick. At Personal Injury Lawyers San Diego, who you hire is who you get. We don’t ever pull the bait and switch and we don’t just stick you with a secretary to be the only person you will be talking to. Personal Injury cases are long cases but we always want to make sure that you are getting personalized service for your case.
If you have been hurt in an accident don’t hesitate to call immediately.
