Attorney Tina M. Alleguez has more than two decades of experience representing insurance companies, manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers of every major category of product, including elevators, home appliances, trucks, automobiles, light fixtures, scissor lifts, fork lifts, hand tools, manufacturing equipment, consumer products, and fire sprinkler systems.
Our clients trust our ability to handle their complex product liability matters in California to act as coordinating counsel for matters occurring in other states because of our superior understanding of the technical issues that arise in product cases. Due to our solid understanding of a variety of products, we work effectively with expert consultants, reducing costs for clients while putting together a powerful defense. Because we understand that products involve design, testing, manufacturing, marketing and labeling, we have not only successfully defended clients in product defect claims but are often retained by product manufacturers before they launch a new product to provide advice on labeling, warnings, warranties.
While we have been extremely successful at resolving cases before trial by prevailing on summary judgment motions and reaching cost effective settlements, we also have a reputation for effectively trying the toughest product liability cases by devoting the time to learn all aspects of a product so that complex scientific issues can be presented at trial in a way that is readily and convincingly understood by a jury.
