Full-service personal injury law firm

Personal injury and medical malpractice cases require an experienced team of players to reach a successful resolution. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers whose job it is to resolve your claim by paying you nothing or the least amount possible. I work hard to make this a fair fight!

The Law Office of John J. McAvoy is a full-service personal injury law firm specializing in aggressively representing ordinary people in cases involving personal injury, medical malpractice, car crashes, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, bike accidents, dog-bite incidents, wrongful death, product liability, construction defect injuries, and insurance disputes.

What I Offer You

Based in San Diego, I have practiced personal injury and insurance law since 1979. With a long-standing practice in Southern California, I am familiar with area judges, arbitrators, and experts, as well as the insurers and attorneys who represent them in these kinds of cases. For instance, these are among the resources available to you when you work with me:

  • treating physicians who specialize in YOUR specific injuries
  • economists who assess your losses and evaluate your future needs
  • reconstruction engineers who evaluate your incident and assist in presenting it to a jury
  • investment experts who assist with awards
  • private investigators who assist in researching and investigating your case
What to Expect When You Work with Me:
A Relentless Advocate

I have a reputation as a fair attorney who works hard to ensure that his clients receive a fair and reasonable settlement prior to trial whenever possible.

A Personalized Approach

I understand that trials are expensive and time-consuming. That's why I always consider alternative dispute resolution procedures, thereby saving you time and money.

An Accessible Attorney

I take great pride in my work, which is why you'll find me extremely responsive. In fact, I make it a practice to personally return phone calls and emails within 24 hours.

The Choice is Yours

Remember that there are always time constraints on cases involving insurance companies and/or litigation. If you think you have a case, or if you know you need assistance with a matter, please call or email me now to arrange for a meeting. The initial evaluation meeting is free. Following that evaluation, if you wish to continue working with me, I will formalize the arrangement before work begins on your case.

And Remember

When working with any lawyer, clear communication is a key element to the success of the proceedings. You must always know what is happening with your case and feel comfortable with events as they transpire. When you work with me, I will diligently pursue prompt recovery and the highest possible settlement for your case. I will also take care to ensure that your rights are protected with respect to both third-party claims and reimbursement demands from your own insurance company. Please reach out today.
