Award-Winning Legal Counsel

Elevating the Practice of Law

Few firms in the nation have successfully prosecuted medical fraud and battery cases. We are one of the first in California to receive a verdict in a case involving conspiracy between a doctor and a medical device manufacturer to commit fraud on a patient.

Bob Vaage has tried numerous jury trials to verdict and represented victims in over 30 Kaiser arbitrations. He was one of the youngest admittees ever to the American Board of Trial Advocates, an elite trial lawyer’s organization. His extensive background in medical malpractice allows him to delve deeply into the cause of injuries, whether by a physician, nurse, medical device manufacturer, or even an airplane parts manufacturer. General trial strategies involve identifying key documents and witnesses; expanding or limiting the relationship between the issues, facts, and the law; finding the right expert; and positioning the case for maximum recovery.

The efforts of Vaage Law on behalf of the injured have also earned Bob Vaage and the firm numerous prestigious, selective awards. A few are listed here:

  • 2020 recipient of “Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award” for his verdict in Collins v. County of San Diego
  • 2020 recipient of “Outstanding Trial Advocate Award” for his arbitration award in Mitchell v. Kaiser, et al.
  • Recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2017 Personal Injury Litigation “Lawyer of the Year” in San Diego. Only a single lawyer in each practice area in each community receives this honor.
  • Named Trial Lawyer of the Year, Outstanding Trial Lawyer, and Outstanding Advocate by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego
  • Designated a Super Lawyer both in San Diego and Southern California
  • Awarded an AV Rating, the highest possible rating by Martindale-Hubbell

How We Deliver Results

Individualized Attention For Each of Our Clients
We Are Transparent With Our Clients
Clients are walked through each phase of the case, from initial filing of the lawsuit, through the discovery process, and then resolution. We take legal concepts and translate them in ways that are easy for clients to understand. When it comes time to evaluate the damages and make settlement offers, clients are always involved. And more importantly, calls or e-mail from our clients are returned within 24 hours.
We Leverage Abundant Litigation Resources

In working up a case, Vaage Law marshals all of the resources at our disposal to give us the greatest advantage in litigation. Our litigation skills include:

  • Extreme attention to detail, identifying the strengths and weaknesses in a case
  • Utilizing high-impact, cutting-edge presentation technology
  • Communicating and arming a strong network of qualified industry experts with information to support their opinions

With an emphasis on teamwork and a combined total of almost 150 years of legal experience between its attorneys and support staff, Vaage Law is ready to take on the most challenging of cases.

We Consider You More Than Just a Client

Vaage Law is constantly trying to reach a deeper understanding of our clients. It requires compassion, dedication, tenacity, and a level of empathy to determine the true nature and extent of an injury. Vaage Law often goes beyond legal representation: Some clients need counseling or a new housing facility or even a new treating physician. Some clients just need someone to listen.

We Are Selective
Vaage Law dedicates much time in our intake process to determine whether it is best to take a particular case. We intentionally limit our caseload so that we can provide the best legal representation and give our full attention to our clients.
We Provide Tailor-Made Litigation Strategies
Everyone’s story is different and unique. A one-size-fits-all approach will never maximize a client’s outcome. Vaage Law brings the craft of creative lawyering, bulldog determination in uncovering the truth, and a strategy that is as unique as our clients.
