Russ Reiner is considered by many to be one of the best personal injury lawyers in California.

His distinguished career in product liability law in areas of rollover accidents, vehicle crashworthiness and safety, and with defective medical devices have gained him national recognition.

He is certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a Board Certified Civil Trial Advocate.

Russ has successfully represented clients against many of the nation’s leading insurance companies, including State Farm, Allstate, Farmers, Geico, CSAA, Hartford USAA, and against powerful corporations, including Ford, GMC, Chrysler, Nissan and Volkswagen, and Tenet Healthcare.

He has lectured throughout the country, teaching other lawyers how to successfully try cases, and has published “Jeep CJ-5 Roll-Over” in the Million Dollar Arguments series. Russ was recently honored as a Candidate for Consumer Attorney of the Year for California.

Rated an “A” lawyer (the highest ranking an attorney can obtain) by Martindale Hubbell, Russ has also honored our firm with the distinction of “Preeminent Law Firm” – again its highest rating.

Russ is recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyers, an honor given only to the top 5 percent of personal injury attorneys.
