The firm’s lawyers are recognized as among the very best in their practice areas. They are consistently named as Best Lawyers in America® and Super Lawyers®.

U/Z partner Scott Garner has published an article in the May 2019 issue of the OCBA’s OC Lawyer titled, “Mandatory Malpractice Insurance: An Attack on Access to Justice” discussing the State Bar’s recent vote against a mandate, and explores current conversations nationwide on the topic.
We are a proud supporter of the Public Law Center Orange County and again sponsored this year’s Volunteers for Justice Annual Dinner. Public Law Center is Orange County’s pro bono law firm committed to providing access to justice for low-income and vulnerable residents.
Co-founding partner Dean Zipser co-presented a section appropriately titled “Mediation: Like a Fine Scotch,” discussing the fundamentals of conducting a successful mediation with the Honorable Nancy Wieben Stock (Ret.), and Joel Miliband at OCBA’s Scotland CLE Seminar.
We were proud to again sponsor the 2019 Annual Judge Kenneth Lae Charity Golf Scramble hosted by the OCBA Charitable Fund. The Charitable Fund is the philanthropic arm of the OCBA and provides funding and resources to organizations and programs that enhance the system of justice and promote equal justice for all.
We are pleased to announce that business litigation partner Vikki L. Vander Woude and patent agent Nicole Ballew Chang, Ph.D. have joined the firm.
