For 20 years attorney Jeff Roberts has been putting on a suit and tie, the “uniform“ of a trial lawyer, and representing clients in courtrooms throughout Southern California. However, on fall Friday nights in Orange County, Jeff can be found donning the black and white striped shirt of a high school football referee, a job he has loved performing for nearly two decades.
As a personal injury attorney, Jeff knows that for people who have been seriously injured in an auto accident, premises liability accident, or suffered the wrongful death of a loved-one, life is not what it was prior to the accident. Jeff and the attorneys at The Roberts Law Firm in Newport Beach are committed to getting accident victims the compensation they deserve. With skill, tenacity and most of all, compassion, the firm’s expert personal injury lawyers have successfully attained over $100 million dollars in settlements and verdicts for their injured clients over the past two decades.
“Most personal injury lawyers do not go to trial, instead settling for quick, easy money at a substantial discount to their client’s detriment. We go to trial, we put in the hard long hours and get much better results,” says firm President and founder Jeff Roberts. The Roberts Law Firm has special expertise in automobile and motorcycle accidents cases, including pedestrians and motorcyclists struck by drunk and distracted drivers.
Mr. Roberts is uniquely qualified to advocate on behalf of his clients, having once walked in their shoes. “I was severely attacked by a dog when I was six years old. My parents hired an attorney who just was looking for a quick buck and settled my case for pennies on the dollar. I never wanted another person or child to have to go through that again and promised myself I would give my clients the representation I should have gotten when I was injured.”
Jeff says that his two jobs are similar: “On the football field it’s all about playing by the rules and getting a fair result. In the courtroom, I fight to get a fair result for my clients against people who have broken the rules.” He continues, “When I finish a legal case and do a great job for my client and they give me a hug and say ‘thank you’ – that’s what makes this area of law so rewarding.”
