Why We Stand Out: Compassion & Expertise

Our trial lawyers are skilled settlement negotiators and well-respected, formidable courtroom litigators. We know when to take cases to trial to secure maximum compensation for our clients. A trusted and compassionate advocate for the wrongfully injured, we have a decades-long track record of securing top-notch settlements and verdicts.  

CZ Law is known for developing innovative solutions to our clients’ complex legal issues. We utilize existing law and forge groundbreaking changes to the law to deliver compensation to our clients and put power back where it belongs—in the hands of the people.

Nearly 30 Years Serving Clients

Since 1995, we’ve built a solid foundation as a trusted source of legal help for those hurt and seeking justice in California. Our truest measure of success is more than the time we’ve been serving clients—it’s the difference we’ve made in their lives.

Experienced Trial Lawyers

Our reputation as experienced courtroom litigators helps us secure maximum results. While we’ll fiercely negotiate to settle your case, we’re prepared to take your case to trial to win the compensation you deserve.

Maximum Settlements & Verdicts

We empower our injured clients to rebuild their lives, and we fight to ensure they receive the maximum compensation they’re entitled to. Our firm has a strong track record of achieving significant client results, often including policy-limit settlements and record-breaking verdicts.

At Carpenter & Zuckerman, you are more than a case file — you are part of our family. We know real human lives are at the heart of the cases we handle, and we’re committed to treating each client with the empathy, respect, and personalized support they deserve.

Our Commitment: No Fees Unless You Win

We understand the financial pressure accompanying a legal battle, which is why we operate on a contingency fee basis. You won’t pay any legal fees unless we win your case. Afterward, any fees due will be deducted from your settlement or judgment.
