This couldn’t be more true to Vanessa Pena’s journey into personal injury law. The first case she ever filed was a bad faith claim against a big health insurance company that was wrongfully denying coverage to a friend. Vanessa quickly saw that these health insurance companies were acting negligently and careless in their back-end operations that was dangerously affecting the well-being of their clients. She knew that the only way that people had a fighting chance against these insurance companies was if they had a legal advocate on their side. Needless to say, Vanessa won her friend’s case and has been a strong opponent against big insurance companies since.
Just like helping a friend in need, Vanessa believes each and every client that chooses Pena Law for their case is a part of our family, one she will fight for and support through every step of the process. She has built a genuine reputation for being a tireless advocate and assertively demanding and winning maximum settlements for her clients.
As a local to Southern California, Vanessa attended law school in downtown San Diego and graduated in the top of her class. She received multiple awards throughout her time in law school for her academic achievements. Upon graduating from law school, she worked for a well-known personal injury defense law firm where she learned the inside world of how insurance companies work.
When she’s not putting the gloves on to battle insurance companies and defense firms, Vanessa wears the “mom hat” raising three boys and two happy pups.
