A Fearless Protector

“Once I realized the greatest satisfaction is in helping victims, I dedicated my career to representing the injured.”

I started practicing law as an insurance defense attorney in 1991 but quickly realized that I was on the wrong side of the fence.  The "good guys" are the lawyers helping victims put their lives back in order after an injury or the loss of a loved one.  It didn't take me long to figure this out and since 1994 I’ve been representing victims of personal injury and wrongful death.  After more than a decade working with a top rated personal injury firm, I started my own practice so that I could help my clients even more.  Now, with three decades of litigation and trial experience and having successfully handled many important cases that have appeared on CNN's Headline News, Trials Digest and the cover of the Los Angeles Daily Journal, I know how to get the job done. From the beginning to the end, you'll have my experience in your corner so you won't have to take on the insurance industry alone.

The law is my passion and my purpose.

"Accountability under the law has always been important. Helping injured victims get justice serves that purpose.”
Paul Ralph

Upholding the law and helping victims get justice has always been my passion. My interest in the law was present from a young age and became even more important as the years passed.  While in college and law school, I worked in private security which lead to a number of courtroom experiences, including testifying in several criminal trials. It was a fascinating experience, and there really is no substitute for having been on the witness stand in a jury trial.  With that exposure and as I continued my formal education, I found my true place — practicing law.

For the last 30 years I have practiced in the personal injury field, and from having worked on both sides, I have developed a unique insight that a lot of attorneys simply do not possess. I have handled cases involving everything from a car accident to a complicated medical malpractice claim.  The particular focus of my law practice may have changed over time, but my passion for helping victims never has. I was raised in a midwestern family with a strong moral compass, and to this day, more than anything, I want to do what’s right. The way I see it, helping those who have been victimized is ALWAYS the right thing to do — plain and simple.  If you or a family member have been a victim of someone else's wrongdoing, I have the knowledge and experience to help.

When you contact me, I respond personally.


The Paul Ralph Advantage

Sound Strategy

Finding the right strategy for each injury case is one of the favorite parts of my job. I believe that with great strategy comes great solutions to the cases I handle. From inception, to settlement negotiations and through trial, your case is handled with a purpose...maximizing your recovery for the personal injuries and damages you suffered.

Expert Experience

Every case is different, but after 30 years of practice in the personal injury field, I’ve seen a little bit of everything. Whatever concern you may have, I’m ready to address it. Few attorneys have litigated and tried such a wide variety of cases, from car accidents to medical malpractice and nearly everything in between. After being the victim of a pesonal injury, you deserve to have an expert in your corner.

Courageous Competition

Each personal injury case is a unique challenge. Fortunately, I’m not one to back down. I’ve litigated, settled and tried even the most complex matters. In the practice of law, aggression tempered with reason will nearly always get the job done. You need a courageous attorney to direct your case and get you the compensation you deserve.

A History of Success

The sooner you reach out, the sooner this can all be over.

If you’re looking for a personal injury attorney, chances are you’re facing a uniquely stressful situation. What you need during this trying time is someone who is not only knowledgeable about the law but who also understands just how important it is to get your life back to normal.  Nothing can undo the harm done, but you can get your life back to the way it was or at least as close as possible.

Attorneys often get a bad rap for being cold and uncaring, but that stereotype doesn’t apply to all of us. I care about doing what’s right, and more than anything, I want to help you put this difficult time behind you — but I can only do that if you reach out for help.  The first step is often the hardest, but once it's over the rest of the journey is mine to direct.  Personal injury claims are never easy and never quick so getting started early often helps.

Slips and falls, car accidents, security misconduct, pedestrian injuries, medical malpractice — I’ve seen it all. But no matter how many personal injury cases come into my office, my bottom line remains the same: no one should have to face these challenges alone.

So whether it’s a dog bite, a wrongful death, or even a sexual harassment concern that brings you to my door, know that I will treat you and your circumstances with the utmost respect. You may walk into my office feeling like a victim, but I’ll do all that I can to make sure you walk out feeling independent and empowered.
