The Vaage Law Firm is known for representing injured victims in highly complex medical fraud and battery cases, product liability cases, major car and truck crashes, and cases involving violations of civil rights. We believe in making our city and the community at large a better, safer place. Founding Attorney Bob Vaage has tried more civil cases to verdict than 95% attorneys in San Diego and is one of the region’s top trial attorneys. He was one of the youngest attorneys to be admitted to the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an elite trial lawyer organization.

Successful Strategies Built on Rich Experience
Early in his career, Bob’s mentor Dan Broderick showed him that a smaller, streamlined firm can offer better, more focused personal injury services. A small firm can be more selective and impactful with its strategies using this approach. Bob heeded his mentor’s advice, and decades later, continues to provide exceptionally targeted litigation services through Vaage Law.
Bob Vaage started his career on the defense side of personal injury cases. This background makes him a master strategist, having personal knowledge of and insight into how the opposing side prepares their defenses. Because of his vast trial experience, other lawyers have sought out Bob Vaage for mentoring and co-counsel opportunities.
CASD Honors Vaage Law Attorneys With Outstanding Trial Attorney & Advocate Awards
We are humbled to announce San Diego Attorneys Bob Vaage and Beth Teixeira of Vaage Law were both honored with Outstanding Trial Attorney and Outstanding Trial Advocate awards by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego (CASD). The Outstanding Trial Attorney awards were given for their work on a case against the County of San Diego for negligence by its sheriff’s deputies and jail nurses. The County offered $500,000 to settle the case, while Vaage Law went on to secure a $12.6 million verdict. The Outstanding Trial Advocate awards were given for their work on a $3.46 million arbitration award in a medical malpractice case against Kaiser, who made no offer to settle. Both attorneys worked tirelessly to obtain these outstanding results for their clients.
