Top Personal Injury Law Firm Building Trust For Nearly 50 Years
Since 1975, Dunnion Law has been a premier personal injury firm. We have recovered over $800,000,000 for injured Californians.
The Dunnion Difference
What sets us apart from other personal injury lawyers is simple – we don’t just fight for clients, we challenge the inequity of the insurance industry.
Nearly 50 years ago we began our journey with the singular goal of fighting to prevent any insurance company from exploiting vulnerable victims for its own financial gain. Since then, we have held insurance companies, countless government entities, and other businesses financially responsible for the harm and injuries caused to our clients. We are dedicated to representing injury victims in California and protecting those individuals from injustice.
Our mission is to help you get your life back on track physically, emotionally, and financially. We accomplish this by:
- helping you get the medical care you need for your physical recovery
- shouldering the burden of the entire process so you have the emotional freedom to focus on what’s important to you, and
- holding the responsible party financially accountable for what they have taken from you.
In 1975, Tom Dunnion founded Dunnion Law, then based in San Diego, California. He established the firm guided by the philosophy that injured Californians should have the same level of exceptional legal representation that insurance companies hire to protect their corporate and financial interests.
By focusing his practice specifically on personal injury law, Tom set out to make a difference for individuals injured in auto, big rig, pedestrian, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents. Gradually he was able to build a team of like-minded personal injury lawyers who share his commitment and passion to champion the value of clients, and liberate them of the legal burdens that frustrate their ability to live fully.

These guys are the best at what they do.See Full Testimonial
These guys are the best at what they do. This was my first time ever having to deal with a car accident. I was really unsure of how to handle the whole thing so I went on Yelp, found these guys and they lived up to the reviews. They were so caring about the type of care I was getting with the doctors. They made sure I was comfortable with the care I was receiving and they would check in periodically. They were also really good at explaining the step-by-step process and how things are done. They really made a bad experience into a positive. I would like to say thank you Travis and Cristina and their team. I will recommend them 100% to anyone and everyone if ever I need. Thank you once again.
You gave me my confidence that there are great and loyal lawyers.See Full Testimonial
I attended a funeral and was hit by a driver who was speeding. While recovering and putting my trust in a lawyer to be my advocate and representative, in return they said they could not represent me because I was at fault. I was crushed. The question I asked myself was “why do bad things always happen to good people?” In this case I cried while at my appointment and then began to search for any lawyer in the Bay Area that could help me. All six attorneys [I contacted] said they could not help. I called Dunnion Law and cried myself to them. They said not to worry and that they would gladly take care of me. I want to say thank you to lawyer, Tara, and the Dunnion Law team! You say what you mean, and mean what you say! You truly are the definition of “I got you!” You go above and beyond and helped me not only prove and win my case, but you also gave me my confidence that there are great and loyal lawyers. There is no lawyer team like you! I love you all, and thank you for treating my case with love before dismissing me like the others did. My favorite lawyer, Tara, is # 1 in my book. Feeling lost? Vulnerable? Go get a Dunnion Law attorney! They have your back and your best interests from Day 1.
They made me feel like I’m not alone in this.See Full Testimonial
I was involved in another accident while my first case was still pending. I spoke to my wonderful lawyer Glenda De Guzman and her awesome assistant, Jennifer. They helped and guided me through this whole process – easy peasy. They made me feel like I’m not alone in this and they were always a call away. I would recommend them 1000 times over anyone else! Thank you guys again for everything.
I never felt rushed . . . and always had the feeling she genuinely cared about my injuries.View Full Testimonial
I give Dunnion Law a 5-star review, but the person who deserves all the credit is Tara Delja. My expectations were constantly exceeded throughout the time that we worked together. In my opinion, the most important quality for an attorney is their font of knowledge. Tara clearly had lots of experience with cases like mine, and I deeply appreciated her straightforward manner. What really set her apart, though, was her kind attitude. Though I was mindful not to waste her time by providing unrelated details, I never felt rushed during our conversations and always had the feeling that she genuinely cared about my injuries. The cherry on as top was a settlement that ensured I would have all the medical treatment I needed. I can’t thank her enough!
AS FEATURED ON
If you, or anyone with you, was injured in the accident, contact your doctor so they can diagnose and determine the injuries that were sustained. Keep all this information in a designated file so that you can locate and access it easily when you speak with our personal injury lawyers. When you have all the information gathered, call us and we can help determine whether you have a personal injury case.
If no injuries were sustained and only property damage occurred, these matters can usually be resolved between the insurance companies involved. However, if you later experience residual effects, such as headaches or muscle pain, it may be beneficial to see your doctor. While there, get a complete assessment of your injuries to determine whether the injuries are associated with the accident. He may also determine whether ongoing care is needed.
Before telling the insurance company about the accident, we recommend that you speak first with one of our personal injury lawyers. If you must talk to the insurance company, do not consent to being recorded, and limit your conversation to the vehicle’s condition and location so that its damage can be assessed.
Do not feel pressured to admit that you caused the accident or that you could have avoided it. It’s also advised that you do not discuss your injuries or how you are currently doing. It can often take days or weeks for the full extent of your injuries to manifest, and the insurance company could later use your comments against you. Taking these precautions will help strengthen your case, and will allow us to make sure you are fully compensated – something insurance companies are determined not to do.
That’s a difficult question, and ultimately depends on assessing the unique conditions of your claim, which cannot be done by an automated calculator. However, according to the All-Industry Research Advisory Council (ARAC), a typical injury case will settle for $3,262 without an attorney, or $11,939 with an attorney. Our personal injury lawyers also have a proven reputation for successfully fighting for top-dollar settlements, and have secured more than $800 million for our clients.
To get an estimate of your settlement, you can speak with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys. They will assess your claim based on its unique circumstances and provide an estimated settlement once they gather the details of your case.
It’s advised that you not settle until meeting with our personal injury team. It is likely the insurance company’s offer is well below what you truly deserve. If you accept the settlement and you later need further medical treatment or are unable to work due to your injuries, your settlement and waiver agreement can prevent you from getting additional compensation.
Dunnion Law is committed to fighting against insurers that attempt to take advantage of unrepresented individuals who may not be aware of the true value of their case. Our clients trust us to advise and guide them about whether to accept an injury settlement or not. You can speak now to one of our experienced personal injury lawyers who will offer knowledgeable insight on your settlement offer, and help assure that you receive the maximum compensation possible for your claim.
