Your legal team should be the ones you can count on in your darkest hour. There is no question that we are the team you need to be there for you. We take your business problem seriously, and we are not in the business of taking frivolous cases. Your opponent’s lawyers know our reputation as an A-team of legal talent and for good reason. You have hired us to go after their client, and when we accept a case, they know it’s no longer a trivial matter.
We are passionate and skilled litigators – We have been at the forefront of unprecedented verdicts and settlements that not only forever improved the lives of our clients, but also the legal landscape in California. That’s why we have earned 28 Outstanding Trial Lawyer Awards over the years and have partners who, every year for a decade, have been recognized for various other honors, including “Lawyer of the Year” by U.S. News and World Report and Best Lawyers, Best of the Bar Award from the San Diego Business Journal, One of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in California by the Los Angeles Daily Journal and more.
We care about our local and global community – We give back to the community at every opportunity, whether it be working pro bono on behalf of local disaster victims or spending weekends helping feed and find housing for the homeless. We truly care not only about our clients, but also for everyone who needs a voice to put a name on their suffering.
We are well-respected for our trial work – With numerous accolades and awards, we are proud to be well-known in San Diego and nationally as fighters who go the extra mile to help clients obtain justice.
We are also business people – We are primarily a contingency fee firm, and as a business person, you have probably never considered hiring a contingency fee firm to litigate a business dispute. So, we ask you this question: “Is it better for my stockholders if a third party takes on the financial risks of a lawsuit?” Would you rather have a team that has skin in the game or someone who gets paid win or lose? We are open to discussing alternative fee arrangements, including hybrid fees, hourly fees, contingency fees and flat rate agreements.
We have the experience where it counts – Each of us has spent countless hours in the courtroom, lecturing at law schools and coaching and mentoring the next generation of legal talent. We have experience that is simply unmatched by any other legal team in the area.
Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire has successfully represented the gravely injured for nearly half a century — from the newly born to those near death, and everyone before, after and in between.
Even seemingly small injuries will impact the quality of your life for decades. We understand that because we have seen it thousands of times. You need to be sure to find an attorney who has a team that understands your pain and suffering, and has a track record of getting the compensation their clients deserve.
Our attorneys have had drive and determination since their earliest years. They delivered newspapers. They managed restaurant kitchens and unloaded grocery trucks. Little did we know how far their hard work would truly take us.
Since 1978, we have helped family businesses grow from small one-man operations into companies with one billion dollars in annual sales.

We work zealously to improve our clients’ lives, and we will continue to fight for them until the end.
