Why Choose the Traut Firm for Your Legal Malpractice or Serious Personal Injury Claim?

Lawyers Jim & Eric Traut

WE HAVE A REPUTATION FOR RESULTS

Over the years, Santa Ana personal injury attorneys Jim and Eric Traut have achieved dozens of six- and seven-figure verdicts. More importantly, the defendants’ settlement offers in those cases were a fraction of the verdicts our clients were awarded. That tells you that the outcomes resulted from our litigation skills. Our reputation as litigators helps us negotiate settlements, because when our clients are not offered what they deserve, we are fully prepared to go to trial and win, and the defendants know it.

That’s what prompts top-dollar settlements. In fact, we win over 95 percent of our cases. Other lawyers routinely refer clients to us because they know we will get the results our clients deserve, whether in settlement negotiations or in the courtroom.

Affordable Legal Representation

YOU CAN AFFORD US

We do not charge consultation fees. You pay no legal fees or litigation costs out of pocket. If we win a settlement on your behalf, our usual fee is one-third of that amount. If there is no verdict or settlement recovery, there is no fee. Talk to one of us about your serious personal injury case, or to Jim about your legal malpractice case. No pressure. Just explanations. Then you can make an informed decision — when it suits you.

Medical Malpractice Attorneys

WE CAN ADDRESS YOUR MEDICAL & FINANCIAL NEEDS

We have connections. Need medical treatment? No insurance? Can’t afford it? No problem. We can arrange treatment for you with first-rate healthcare providers who will defer payment until we win your injury claim. Need money to get you through this rough patch? We can arrange that too. Again, the lender will defer repayment until you win your lawsuit.
