Legal problems require
exceptional attorneys

We will fight for you

In business for more than 60 years, The Cartwright Law Firm is nationally recognized as a leading authority in personal injury and wrongful death law. Led by attorney Robert E. Cartwright Jr., we provide individualized service to injury victims and employees throughout Northern California. Once we agree to represent you as a client, we have the well-earned reputation for investing the resources, whether it is time or money, necessary to win your case.

As one of the most respected personal injury lawyers in the country, Robert E. Cartwright Jr., carries on the reputation, tradition and commitment to service established by his father. Lessons at the dinner table, working in the law firm as a high school student and spending more than a year working on a trial with his father, prepared Robert E. Cartwright Jr., to become an accomplished, notable trial attorney in his own right.

Over the years, the firm expanded into new practice areas and added accomplished trial attorneys to the staff. We have purposely remained a smaller firm, however, so we can provide personal client service. When you call Cartwright Law Firm, for example, you will talk to a lawyer right away or one will promptly return your call.

Most of our highly trained staff has been with us for 15 to 20 years. They take the time to understand your individual needs, problems and how your injuries, whether they are personal or financial, have impacted your life, your family and your well-being.
