Joseph E. Tomasik
My clients greatly appreciate the communication, honesty and respect that I show them from the minute they walk in the door. I was a former insurance company attorney, and I started my own firm in 1994 to represent injured claimants and other plaintiffs. I am very passionate about communicating with my clients and zealously representing their interests, being involved in professional legal organizations, as well as serving my community.
I have been selected to become a Lifetime Member of Rue Ratings’ Best Attorneys of America (less than 1% of lawyers in America have been invited to be members) and a California Super Lawyer (only 5% of the attorneys in Northern California are named in Super Lawyers). I have also been peer-rated by other attorneys as AV-Preeminent (highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethical standards) through the national legal organization Martindale-Hubbell.
I serve on the Board of Governors for Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) and Alameda-Contra Costa Trial Lawyers Association (ACCTLA). I am a member of American Association for Justice (AAJ), the State Bar of California, and the State Bar of Wisconsin. I stay informed in my areas of emphasis by attending three days of seminars at the CAOC’s Annual San Francisco Convention. I also attend the ACCTLA’s Annual Year In Review of the most recent breaking cases and changes in the law, along with numerous other continuing legal education seminars throughout the year.
