Our Firm's Philosophy

Compassionate Counsel from a Premier Trial Lawyer

We believe there are few things more valuable than justice. Though we have helped our clients recover millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, nothing compares to the justice we have helped serve on behalf of the innocently injured and bereaved.

From demanding safer standards in the medical community to demanding more stringent safety procedures in the product manufacturing industry, we strongly believe in making San Diego – and the community at-large – a better, safer place to live.

Though we take pride in our accomplishments, few things give us more purpose than genuinely serving our clients and helping them accomplish their goals. Due to his commitment to preparing every case thoroughly, investigating claims meticulously, and pursuing the maximum damages tirelessly, Attorney Vaage is not only recognized as a top trial lawyer but is also a preferred source of legal advocacy for victims and their families.
