Professional Liability and Employment Defense
Defending Your Business is Our Business
Are you looking for a top-ranked law firm to defend your business in professional
liability, labor/employment or ADA litigation? Are you tired of paying
mega-firm rates for impersonal service rendered by people whose initials
you don't recognize on your billing statements? Would you like to
work with attorneys who get excited about your business and your business
needs? Would you like your law firm to help you stay ahead of the curve
in avoiding litigation altogether?
For nearly three decades, the attorneys of Rheinheimer Smigliani + Drake,
APC have been successfully counseling and defending Southern California
businesses in professional liability, labor/employment, directors and
officers and ADA litigation. We're into long-term relationships. Many
of our institutional and private clients have been with us for well over
a decade, some of them for over two decades. That's because your business
matters to us. We give you smart, practical advice and we won't let
you waste your money. To learn more about our firm and practice areas,
contact our office today at (619) 503-1437.
Our Practice Areas Include:
Optimum Results Without Waste
We know you have lots of choices when it comes to choosing a defense firm.
All of them promise "aggressive defense" and "proven track
records", and of course we deliver those things, too. What sets us
apart is our small size, our commitment to earning your business for the
long term, and our unique expertise in a few specific practice areas that
impact nearly every Southern California business at one time or another.
We put our focus on what's important. We work out of small offices
in San Diego's Little Italy. No interior staircase. No original works
of art. No "I love me" walls of accolades. We don't waste
our money on fancy offices, and we don't waste your money on unnecessary
There is no "cookie cutter" defense at Rheinheimer Smigliani
+ Drake. We tailor each defense to the case, and to the client's needs,
budget and expectations. We promise to give you a straightforward assessment
of your options. It is our job to give you wise counsel, not just to tell
you what you want to hear. If we can't help you, we'll tell you
so. If we can help you, we'll go to the mat for you.
If you find yourself on the receiving end of a lawsuit in any of our areas
of practice, or if you think one might be lurking out there waiting to
find you, contact us to see if we are the right fit. We think you might
just find yourself a new law firm.
