Senior Trial Attorney
Family man. Experienced litigator. Pianist. Attorney.
Dedicated to Maximizing Results for Californians Who Deserve Compensation After Injuries
For the first 10 years of his legal career, Anson worked closely with insurance adjusters who uttered the mantra, “We will pay what we owe,” however, getting them to that point required navigating the complexities of insurance litigation. Over time, he realized this mantra often did not align with reality. Injured victims going toe-to-toe against an insurance company that possessed indomitable resources was a never-ending battle of David facing Goliath. Anson made the transition to plaintiffs work to help injured persons and their families. He knows what carriers look for and will fight to ensure his clients are fairly compensated and made whole.
