The Law Offices of Mason ∙ Thomas have a long and highly respected history as civil litigation attorneys primarily engaged in the representation of people and businesses being sued for monetary damages. Steve Mason and Brad Thomas have been practicing law together for 35 years and between the two of them, have tried well over 200 jury cases. The firm has an AV rating with Martindale-Hubbel and has been designated as preeminent law firm in California.
We are known as insurance defense lawyers but our lawyers also represent clients who are self-insured or, in the case of many business and employment disputes, have no insurance coverage. The firm specializes in handling lawsuits for personal injury arising out of automobile accidents, premises related accidents, alleged defective or toxic products, construction site accidents, as well as lawsuits arising out of employment and business disputes.
We represent clients in all Superior Courts throughout California and in the 9th District Federal Court. The majority of our practice is located in Northern California where we are representing clients in the counties of Sacramento, Butte, Placer, El Dorado, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Fresno, San Francisco, Contra Costa, Solano, Yolo, Sutter, Yuba, Shasta, Lake, Plumas, Sierra, Napa, Marin, Sonoma, and Alameda. Having actually tried multiple jury trials in most of those venues, we offer a unique and experienced insight into the judges' and jurors' preferences and tendencies.
Both Mr. Mason and Mr. Thomas are long-time active members of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and Mr. Thomas has served as president of the Sacramento Valley Chapter and as a member of the Board of Directors for CalABOTA.
We take pride from the fact that we can truly call ourselves trial lawyers rather than just litigators.
