About our Oakland, CA: office

Haapala, Thompson & Abern, LLP was founded as an insurance defense firm more than thirty years ago and has grown into one of the most respected Bay Area civil litigation firms. Our attorneys and paralegals take pride in providing big firm results with small firm client commitment and cost efficiency.

Areas of Practice:

The firm defends actions involving landlord tenant disputes, first and third party insurance claims, products liability, premises liability, personal injury, motor vehicle accidents, boating accidents, construction accidents, construction defects, copyright disputes, disability access, land use, and toxic torts.

The other main practice area of the firm is public entity defense. This practice includes defending government entities, public officials, and public employees in actions involving civil rights violations, torts, employment disputes, medical malpractice, and dangerous conditions of public property. These actions are litigated in both state and federal court.

The firm also has an appellate practice that affords our clients every opportunity to pursue a successful case resolution beyond the trial court. We handle appeals and petitions for extraordinary relief at all levels of the state and federal courts.

Team Approach:

Our associates, paralegals and secretaries work closely with the partners to deliver high quality results in a cost effective manner. Clients and claims representatives are considered an important part of the litigation team and are consulted and kept informed throughout the progress of the case.
