Ed K. April 7, 2020
Good communication and service The office of Eric Ratinoff provided professional service and advice in our claim with Pacific Gas and Electric after the Butte fire. There was excellent preparation for the mediation and good advice in creating a settlement. Members of his team seemed coordinated in their efforts and were timely with follow up.

Excellent Lawyer with Strong Integrity and Truly Cares About his Clients Eric Ratinoff has a reputation for being an excellent lawyer, among the best in California, and he has earned it. While some lawyers are cold and impersonal, Eric makes you feel very comfortable and at ease about the legal process. He is a great communicator and doesn't hesitate to make himself available during off-hours. He obviously knows a great deal about the law, but I was also extremely impressed by his extensive medical knowledge, particularly when it comes to brain injuries. TBI is not a very well understood injury, so finding a good advocate for brain injuries can be quite challenging. Eric is very well educated in this area, and seems to have a natural understanding for his brain injured clients, which explains why he handles a lot of these types of cases. He is very patient in explaining (and repeating) key details, and this extends to his staff, as well--they make a very difficult process easy, and this is important for people who have survived a TBI, as well as their caregivers. I would not hesitate to recommend Eric to anyone who has been seriously injured. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else.

I started my firm because I wanted to provide my clients with my own brand of excellent legal representation, consistent with my unique human qualities of compassion, strength, caring and integrity. I have represented injured people for over twenty years. While I have very successfully tried and settled many cases over the years, I take nothing for granted. For that reason, I work very hard – harder than most. I do it because I love what I do and I am constantly striving to improve, learn new ways of doing things, better ways of connecting with juries. My clients deserve no less. I am proud of all of the great work that my team and I have done for our clients. Some of the cases in which I have made the biggest difference for my clients have included traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, motorcycle accidents, trucking and car accidents, medical malpractice cases, insurance bad faith cases, wildfire litigation, and product liability lawsuits. One of my trial victories involves what is believed to be the largest medical malpractice jury verdict in Sacramento County history. With a former law partner, I recovered $7.6 million on behalf of a young woman rendered T4 paraplegic due to a Medical Center’s failure to diagnose a mass on her spine. Over the past five years, I have personally represented hudreds of home and business owners who lost everything to preventable wildfires in California's foothills and wine country.
