About Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire

Founded in 1978, our team at Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire LLP has built our practice by providing quality, straightforward legal guidance to our clients from San Diego and the surrounding area. In fact, our firm was one of the first contingency fee firms in San Diego to win over $2 billion in verdicts and settlements.

Our attorneys invest heavily in custom-tailored strategies for every case we pursue. Several of our cases have established important legal precedents; pioneered the use of technology, such as digital media, at trial; or were defined by extraordinary public interest. Every client’s case gets the same treatment as would one of our family.

Committed To Improving The Lives Of Our Clients And Communities

From the start, our firm has earned numerous commendations for the successes that we have brought to our clients. Our lawyers belong to leading legal organizations, many of which admit only proven attorneys with track records of significant results. Participation in these organizations shows that we have a recognized history of offering our clients quality legal representation and advocating for their interests. The prestige we receive stems from extensive peer reviews of our longevity, reputation and courtroom record as well as the standing that we have earned as a firm with a team that will fight smart and hard both in and out of the courtroom.

“There’s really no secret about what I do. I really do care for my clients; each case gets the same kind of attention my family would get.”

– Christian Hulburt, Partner

Our trial successes benefit our clients, but unlike other law firms, we earmark part of our success to use to benefit those who have experienced misfortune that cannot be righted in front of a judge. From our pro bono work for victims of 9/11 to our outreach work to improve the health of impoverished children, we support community service projects with the same professional dedication that we give every client we serve.
