San Fernando Valley Personal Injury Lawyer
30 Years of Practice & Over $100 Million Recovered
Since 1987, The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus has dedicated their legal careers to helping represent the injured and their families. Have you been hurt? Have you lost a loved one? If so, you are dealing with one of the most emotionally straining, confusing times anyone could ever experience. While you may need an attorney—and an attorney fast—it is important to recognize that not all attorneys are created equal. While many have similar schooling, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Personal injury cases, and who you choose to hire will play a major role in how successfully your case will unfold.
At our firm, we are proud of the caliber of attorneys who compose our legal team. For example, our founding attorney, Gerald L. Marcus, has made a name for himself in the legal industry, and is well-known locally, statewide, and nationally. In 2011, he was selected as "Personal Injury Attorney of the Year" by the editorial staff of the Consumer Business Review. The Beverly Hills Bar Association of Governors has also honored Mr. Marcus by nominating him as a
member of the "Order of the Distinguished Attorneys." Attorney Marcus was recently included in the
2014 list of Super Lawyers® - a distinction given to no more than 5% of lawyers in the state. Beyond these honors, our firm was also selected by CityofLosAngeles.com in 2011 and 2012 as a premier company.

wrongful death case. Either way, we can help.
The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus' Areas of Practice
Our firm prides ourselves on the wide-breadth of different personal injury cases that we can handle. We are, for example, well-versed in car accident cases—ranging from
drunk driving, to
distracted driving, to
reckless driving. In one case, we represented a client who had been injured in a minor-impact rear-end accident. In this case, our client was up against an insurance company that was claiming the force of the car accident could not have caused injury, and who were only willing to offer our client $200. Before contacting our firm, the client worked with two other lawyers whom were unsuccessful. As soon as we took on the case, we were able to aggressively litigate on our client's behalf, and settled the case for $95,000 prior to trial.
Another area of our practice includes premises liability cases, where the plaintiff has suffered an injury on the property of another. In one particular case, we represented a client who was facing a premises liability case, as well as a
medical malpractice case. Our client had been at a retail store when she had wedged her foot underneath a fallen sign and tripped; as a result, she suffered a serious foot injury. After reaching out to her doctor, she underwent multiple surgeries and began to develop complex regional pain syndrome (CRRS). Throughout the case, the owner of the store and property disputed their liability, and argued that some of the client's suffering was due to the physician's malpractice. The case lasted for several years; however, we were eventually successful—with the help of a top-notch Calabasas trial lawyer—to settle for $575,000.
These are just small examples of the different types of cases that we have successfully handled throughout the years. While they are not a guarantee of success, and do not promise any future results, we feel that they showcase our talent, ability, and commitment to our clients. If you are interested in learning more about our previous victories, we encourage you to read through our case results. There, you will be able to read through cases that range from tragic wrongful death cases, to
pedestrian accidents, to
swimming pool drowning cases. The results, however, are just a sampling of the cases we have handled before; we are not limited to the types of cases described on that page.
