About Us

Thomas C. Zaret has been a trial lawyer representing plaintiffs' rights since 1984. He prepared for the practice of law by doing externships with Justice Joseph R. Grodin (California Supreme Court Justice) and Judge Frank W. Shaw, Jr., a San Francisco trial judge. Mr. Zaret authored a law review article, "Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress: Reconciling the Bystander and Direct Victim Causes of Action" 18 USF Law Rev. 145 (1983). In Thing v. La Chusa, 48 Cal.3d 644 (1989), the California Supreme Court cited to Mr. Zaret as one of the scholars who noted confusion in the state of the law concerning emotional distress. Justice Mosk's dissent quoted Mr. Zaret's interpretation of the law as providing a simple answer to the complex issues confronted by the Court.

Mr. Zaret spent six years learning the practice from well-respected trial counsel Erwin Sobel, Esq. before starting his own practice. He has tried premises liability, motor vehicle, bicycle and dog bite cases.

Thomas C. Zaret is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. This group gives recognition to those trial lawyers in the United States that have achieved a verdict, award or settlement in the amount of one million dollars or more. The fact of such an accomplishment is a strong and tangible indicator of exceptional experience, skill and diligence on the part of the trial lawyer.
