Our trial experience assists our clients to obtain optimal results in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.

Our Expertise

Injury Defense Litigation Trial Practice and Anti-Fraud Litigation: We represent individuals, governments, insurance carriers, their insureds, and self-insured entities in the defense of tort liability claims. We have particular expertise to develop defenses of our clients to maximize the clients’ opportunities to have the jury accurately understand the facts of the claim and the actual injuries, if any, being pursued by the plaintiff. Our courtroom experience enables our clients to avoid becoming victimized by attorneys that are attempting to mislead the jury. We have particular expertise in handling complex injury claims — neurological claims, claims involving bones and joints, and claims involving surgeries.

Anti-Organized Healthcare Fraud Litigation: Clients facing multiple questionable claims submissions from healthcare providers are faced with the challenges of how to sort the multitude of facts and circumstances in each claim. We are adept at detecting where misrepresentations occur in the claims being presented to the client. We enable the client to develop strategies and evidence to resist the claims and to seek affirmative remedies. We are a firm that files “whistleblower” actions against the perpetrators of organized fraud and we specialize in unlawful business practices actions. Our attorneys have a depth of understanding concerning medical issues that only comes through years of trial practice. The Healthcare industry and the Insurance industry are highly regulated. We are able to assist our clients to effectively resist unmeritorious and fraudulent claims while lawfully operating within the regulatory environments.

Blowing the Whistle: California and the Federal Government have powerful laws designed to encourage litigation against those that perpetrate insurance fraud. The firm brings Qui Tam (whistleblower) cases for institutional clients desiring to utilize affirmative litigation to address multiple false claims submissions. We also help clients detect and develop evidence of false claims submissions. If you work for a healthcare provider that is crossing the line by submitting questionable claims to insurers or know of false claims submission, please contact Steve Toschi. There are considerable bounties and protections for those “blowing the whistle” on insurance fraud.
