In January 2016, KCEH Lawyers Guy Kornblum & Nick Peterson received a $1.35 million award for our client in an underinsured motorist arbitration which was held in November. The client was struck in a pedestrian crosswalk in Oakland by a vehicle at a low speed. He suffered a broken knee cap but also a serious psychological injury including depression, anxiety attacks and chronic pain syndrome and was off work 8 months. The insurer offered $175,000, but the arbitrator awarded 8x that.

Our Skill Set Inside The Courtroom Allows Us To Resolve Most Cases Outside Of It
If you face litigation regarding an injury accident, an insurance dispute or a business issue, you want to be represented by attorneys who have extensive trial experience and a track record of success. Because our attorneys' trial abilities are so highly regarded within the legal community, we are able to resolve many of our cases through negotiation, including mediation. This increases your control over the outcome, eliminates surprises and greatly reduces the stress that our clients experience.
We know how to try cases, and we don't hesitate to do so when a fair agreement is not on the table. But we think beyond trials, and we use our creativity to reach solutions that standard court cases simply can't produce.
Personal Attention From Start To Finish
Another distinguishing element of our legal services is the personal attention we provide to each client. We understand the stress that is caused by a personal injury that prevents someone from working, a business dispute that disrupts a customer-focused approach, or a disagreement over an insurance claim.
If you are injured in an accident or during a medical procedure, or if you are in a legal dispute with an insurance provider, it is important to review the financial impact this has on you, your family and your business or earning capacity. We work closely with our clients to accurately assess the financial impact following a setback.
