GJEL Accident Attorneys was founded in 1972 by attorneys Andy Gillin and Ralph Jacobson. The two lawyers began their careers in legal services for the poor and started the firm with a desire to help clients navigate the stresses and financial hardships that result from being involved in a serious accident. Since then, GJEL has grown into one of the top plaintiff’s personal injury firms in Northern California, boasting attorneys that are consistently awarded distinction from Super Lawyers as well as Best Lawyers. Since its inception, GJEL has recovered over $850 million on behalf of accident victims and their loved ones. The firm is frequently consulted by other personal injury firms and has developed a reputation for being able to handle even the most complex personal injury cases. Working with victims of automotive, pedestrian, bicycle, wrongful death, and brain trauma injuries, GJEL Accident Attorneys have successfully secured verdicts and settlements in over 99% of their cases. Consultations are always free and there is no payment unless a recovery is secured.
