Joseph Nierenberg is an AV*-rated (highest national rating), respected, successful and tenacious San Francisco Bay Area attorney specializing in representing individuals and families who have been seriously injured or lost a loved one from accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, bicycles, pedestrians or uninsured motorists. He handles cases involving injuries to children, wrongful death, dangerous conditions on private or public property bus / public transit accidents. These injuries can involve fractures, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and amputations. Our firm is kept small because we prefer a hands-on approach to every aspect of each case, and our style is to personally serve each client. In no event will a client’s case be “passed down” to a less experienced junior attorney.

Bay Area Personal Injury Lawyer

Joseph Nierenberg has spent his entire career representing injured persons exclusively, and his law firm has been recognized for personal, caring and effective service. Attorney Joe Nierenberg and legal assistant Lorraine Burciaga are focused on helping injured people and the families of wrongful death victims.

When you come in for a free consultation, you will have a one-on-one consultation with your personal injury lawyer. We will talk to you about the reason you consulted us, explain your rights and explain the litigation process.

From the beginning, we will monitor your medical progress. If you do not have health insurance, we will help you find alternatives. It is important for you to have the medical treatment you need.

Throughout the claims and litigation process, we will answer your questions and concerns so that you understand how your case is progressing. Your lawyer will always return your calls as quickly as possible and keep you informed until your case is resolved.

Our law firm is respected by our colleagues and our opponents. Mr. Nierenberg has served as a pro tem judge on the Superior Court as well as a judicial arbitrator in San Francisco and Marin counties. He is a member of, and has served on the boards of our professional community organizations. Our referrals derive primarily from satisfied clients and other members of the Bar, including our past adversaries. In all of our specialty areas, we have the understanding, knowledge and aggressive determination to see that you receive a fair settlement or judgment.

We regularly bring our cases to trial and are at ease in a courtroom. Unlike many personal injury firms, we do not refer our cases to trial lawyers when settlement negotiations fail; we are trial lawyers who take our cases “all the way.” We have successfully prosecuted million-dollar cases by both settlement and trial. We have successfully prosecuted cases against all of the major insurance companies as well as local, state and federal governments and corporate entities.
