Reza Torkzadeh is a personal injury attorney licensed in California and Texas. He has dedicated his professional life to representing those who have been injured by someone else's negligence, and the families of those who have lost loved ones in tragic circumstances.
Every year since 2015, Reza has been named to Woodward White's Best Lawyers list; a recognition of excellence by one of the oldest and most well-respected peer review publications in the legal profession. Similarly, Reza is recognized as a Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters, a recognition he earned in 2014 and every year since. A Super Lawyer classification is reserved for the top 5% of attorneys in the state.
Reza and team successfully litigated an FDA recalled medical device case in 2015 that resulted in a $14,250,000.00 settlement. In the year prior, Reza represented a catastrophically injured pedestrian, in which a verdict in the amount of $26,255,367.84 was obtained. VerdictSearch announced that the result was California's largest personal injury verdict in 2014.
Every year from 2010 to 2013, Reza was selected by his peers as a Super Lawyers Rising Star , a recognition only given to 2.5% of the attorneys in the state. Los Angeles Magazine named him as one of the Top Young Lawyers as selected by his peers and The National Trial Lawyers selected him on the Top 40-Under-40 list. In 2014, The American Society of Legal Advocates named Reza as a Top 40-Under-40 litigator.
Following a $12,000,000.00 judgment in a 2012 wrongful death case, Reza became a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum; one of the most prestigious trial lawyers organizations in the Country, a distinction held by less than 1% of all attorneys.
Reza is the Co-Author of the book, Accidents Happen But Who's Going to Pay the Bills: A Consumers' Guide to the California Personal Injury & Wrongful Death System.
Reza's practice is focused on representing those who have been seriously injured as a result of someone else's wrongdoing. He has successfully represented those who have been injured or lost loved ones in auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, premises and product liability cases, premises liability, and dog bite cases in both State and Federal Courts.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing to me is protecting my client's rights. These are people and families whose lives have been changed because of an injury or loss. To me there is nothing more important than making sure that my clients are treated fairly, and those who are responsible are held accountable." -Reza Torkzadeh
