Leaders In Personal Injury Litigation

In the aftermath of a life-altering injury caused by someone else’s negligent or reckless actions, you and the people you love face many challenges. You will face a grueling recovery process with no guarantee of living the life you once lived. In addition, you will need significant financial resources to compensate you for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.

It is important to understand that the lawyer you select in your personal injury claim matters a great deal. For many decades, individuals and families across Oakland, the Bay Area, Central Valley and Northern California have placed their trust in Van Blois Law.

Mr. Van Blois became Board Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in 1983 and as such is recognized by the California State Bar as a Civil Trial Specialist. He has been recognized by the Consumer Attorneys of California (formerly called the California Trial Lawyers Association) as an experienced trial attorney in the fields of Products Liability, Professional Negligence, General Personal Injury, Public Entity Liability and Insurance Bad Faith law.

Mr. Van Blois has consistently received the "AV" rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the legal profession's directory for over 140 years and has been actively involved in improving the administration of justice in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. He also has frequently lectured on trial practice and personal injury law and medicine.

Together with his team of lawyers, Mr. Van Blois works tirelessly to give his clients every opportunity to achieve a successful outcome in their case.
