Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn (RFTM) was founded in 1980. Since that time, our firm has expanded to include seven attorneys and a team of support staff. Over the past few decades, our San Francisco personal injury law firm has built a national reputation as a strong advocate for the wrongfully injured. We have become known for our dedication and effectiveness in helping injured victims secure the justice and compensation that they rightfully deserve. No matter how bleak your situation may appear, you can rely on our San Francisco personal injury attorneys to guide you to that light at the end of the tunnel!
The legal community and the public have come to know us as driven legal professionals who are not afraid to take on large cases and powerful opponents. We have a reputation as a law firm that gets results. While we serve as aggressive protectors of our clients' rights, we also serve as compassionate and approachable legal counsel for the individuals we represent. We listen to our clients' concerns and provide them with support through some of the most challenging times of their lives.
A few of our accomplishments that have set us apart include the following:
We have a very diverse client base. We represent consumers and business executives, patients and doctors, children and adults. Our law firm has even provided representation for judges, mediators, and their loved ones.
Personal attention is something every client deserves from a personal injury attorney. When you hire RFTM, we will customize our services to meet your individual needs. While we enjoy putting our litigation skills to practice in the courtroom, we know that for many clients, the certainty of a settlement may be more favorable than the risks and costs of a trial. As a result, we make every effort to reach a settlement for the maximum value before taking a case to trial. We do, however, prepare each case as if it is going to trial, even though we are starting out with settlement negotiations.
At RFTM, we build strong, long-lasting relationships with our clients. In fact, it is common for us to even build friendships with our clients that last well beyond the resolution of their cases. For our San Francisco personal injury lawyers, a client is much more than just a business transaction or a case file number. We see each client as a person who needs help getting back on his or her feet after a life-altering event. If you have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, we want to provide you with the resources you need to achieve restoration so you can move forward with your life.
You want your case resolved favorably. We understand this and focus on resolving it. Research and investigation is key. Identifying key witnesses, developing the facts researching and applying the law helps cases resolve favorably for our clients at trial or during mediation. While we are efficient, we never let the ultimate goal of maximizing our client's recovery—getting top dollar for a case—escape us.
As a personal injury firm established over 30 years ago, we skillfully advise you about the best way to achieve that result. That means we invest the time, resources and people to analyze every case. We never shy away from taking on a difficult opponent. At the end of the day, the path your case takes is your decision. We provide you with the recommendations based on our knowledge and experience to make an informed decision.
We are more than the sum of our parts. You want talented trial and personal injury attorneys who are accustomed to resolving complex cases? We've got them. You want knowledgeable and compassionate staff to work on your case? We guarantee it. How about technological skill? We run our own courtroom technology. This technology is an effective tool for breaking down complex concepts and details before judges and juries.
Our in-house resources ensure that your trial lawyers will know the evidence inside out, as well as how to present it. Our distinguished attorneys are exceptional, detailed, and passionate about their work, and efficient. The staff at our personal injury firm are warmhearted and understanding. Experience, dedication and creativity coupled with technical skill is our winning combination.
