Haapala, Thompson & Abern, LLP was founded as an insurance defense firm more than thirty years ago and has grown into one of the most respected Bay Area civil litigation firms. Our attorneys and paralegals take pride in providing big firm results with small firm client commitment and cost efficiency.
Areas of Practice
The firm primarily defends actions involving landlord-tenant disputes, first and third party insurance claims, products liability, premises liability, personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, construction defects and land use. The other main practice area of the firm is public entity defense. This practice includes defending government entities, public officials, and public employees in actions involving civil rights violations, torts, employment disputes, and dangerous conditions of public property. We litigate in both state and federal court and handle appeals and petitions for extraordinary relief at all levels.
Our partners, associates, paralegals and secretaries all work together to deliver high-quality results in a cost-effective manner. At each stage, the partners are involved in all strategic decisions and consultations with clients. Clients and claims representatives are considered an important part of the litigation team and are consulted and kept informed throughout the progress of the case.
