Our Sacramento Lawyers have solid legal expertise in the following areas:
Our personal injury attorneys are not only passionate about what we do, but aggressive in working towards obtaining the best possible outcome for our clients. We recognize that victims of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, or construction accidents are typically unprepared for the life changes they unexpectedly suffered. Our clients are often out of work, and many have suffered permanent disabilities from a brain injury or spinal cord injuries. Unfortunately, some have even suffered a wrongful death as the result of negligence of a driver, or even worse the reckless conduct of a drunk driver.
Eason & Tambornini is a premier personal injury law firm of highly experienced and successful personal injury lawyers, representing victims in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. Eason & Tambornini’s personal injury attorneys are well known within Sacramento for their achievements both in the courtroom and out. The rights and concerns of our clients are at the core of our personal injury and wrongful death practice.
Our bankruptcy attorneys handle on a regular basis bankruptcy matters including not only “fresh start” or “liquidation bankruptcies” such as Chapter 7 Bankruptcies, but also handle reorganization bankruptcies such as a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy or a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. While each of the types of bankruptcies will stop a foreclosure, the reorganization bankruptcies are usually the best ones for creating long-term solutions to foreclosures.
As debtor lawyers, we understand the stress placed on individuals by collection companies and creditors. We understand the needs to act quickly to stop the harassing phone calls, and balance that with the goals of doing the best job for our clients.
The workers’ compensation attorneys in our office pride themselves as being some of the top attorneys in the area. They have a reputation amongst their peers as aggressively handling permanent disability cases and achieving high workers compensation settlements for their clients. We regularly assist clients in challenging the reports of Qualified Medical Evaluators chosen from a Panel of Qualified Medical Examiners, and even the reports of some Agreed Medical Evaluators.
Workers’ Compensation benefits are not just limited to a permanent disability, but also include rights to medical treatment, and temporary disability payments in most cases.
The business law lawyers at Eason & Tambornini will work with you to obtain the best result in the most affordable fashion. Whether you are a business owner being sued, a business owner owed money by someone, or a business owner that needs to remove a partner, we understand that time is money. Often, the quicker we can get to a final resolution, the better off you are.
On the other hand, our business law attorneys appreciate that sometime the best results take time. We will work with you to develop a balance between speedy resolution, and getting the best results. If you have any questions for our business law attorneys, please do not hesitate to call or write. Read More…
The real estate attorneys in our office regularly handle not only matters arising out of residential real estate sales and disputes, but also out of commercial real estate sales and disputes. Misrepresentations in the sale of real estate whether fraudulent, intentional, or by accident may be actionable if the buyer relies on them and suffers damages. Even the failure to include necessary information in a transfer disclosure statement may give rise to damages.
In addition to real estate fraud matters, we also handle partitions actions. In a typical partition action, one person seeks to buy or sell their interest in real estate, or to have the entire real estate sold. If you have a real estate law question, please contact one of our real estate lawyers. Read More…
Are you unable to continue in your job due to an injury or illness? Do you think that a medical condition may keep you from working for 12 months or longer? If so, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. A key to convincing a judge to approve your social security disability claim or appeal is based on both diligent preparation and presentation. Understanding the evidence that is needed to prevail, as well as presenting your evidence clearly are very important to your case.
The labor law attorneys at Eason & Tambornini represent almost exclusively employees in disputes with their employers. With rare exception, we do not represent employers. We regularly handle overtime cases, failure to pay wage claims, and cases where employers have failed to provide meal and rest breaks. We believe in representing an employee, it is important that we fully understand their claims, and that we look to maximize the amount they are entitled to recover. When appropriate, we will bring claims as not only Class Action matters, but also under the Private Attorney General Act. We also handle matters not only in State and Federal Court, but also before the California Labor Commissioner.
“I have found Eason & Tambornini to be very knowledgeable and understanding. They have represented me and my family in several Sacramento personal injury matters and my daughter in a dog bite case. Each time they went above and beyond to ensure that we were protected and received fair and just compensation.” Samantha, a Sacramento Personal Injury Attorneys Client
Frequently Asked Questions about Sacramento Attorneys:
Most personal injury attorneys representing victims in helping them recover for their injuries charge their fees based on a contingency. However, contingency agreements are not just for personal injury cases. The attorneys at Eason & Tambornini represent many clients on a contingency fee basis in a wide range of matters including: overtime claims; wage and hour claims; real estate fraud; real estate partition action; business fraud; collection on judgments; medical malpractice; spinal cord injuries; brain injuries; car accidents; motorcycle accidents; construction accidents; and dog bites.
Under our contingency fee agreements, you are not personally responsible for any of your personal injury attorneys or other trial lawyer’s fees unless and until we recover money for you. In other words, it does not cost you anything to hire one of our attorneys until we win.
The amount of the personal injury attorneys fees charged on a contingency basis range dramatically from as low as 8% in some workers compensation cases to 40% or more in very difficult tough liability and complex cases. When discussing fees with one of our personal injury attorneys or trial lawyers, the percentage you are paying is important, but what is more important is the service and representation you receive for the fee. The old adage penny-wise pound-foolish applies to legal representation as well. You can always find a “cheap” lawyer, but is that the type of personal injury lawyer or trial attorney you really want?
Choosing a good trial lawyer or personal injury attorney is an important decision. Word of mouth and recommendations are generally the best way. However if you do not know any good personal injury attorneys personally, or have recommendations that you can really trust, then look for an attorney that has good reviews.
Google reviews are a great place to start. Google reviews generally are harder to fake than some other sites, and generally more reliable. Google reviews are also based on prior client experiences, so those reviews can give you an expectation of how you will be treated. Our attorneys are very proud of our Google reviews and encourage you check them out. Also, look to peer review sites such as Martindale. These reviews are based on what other attorneys say about an attorney or firm. We have the highest rating that Martindale gives out A-V Preeminent, which means that our peers rank us at the highest level of professional excellence.
Besides recommendations, as well as client and peer reviews, look for an attorney that you believe you can communicate with comfortably. When you meet with the attorney, are they asking the right questions to learn about your situation and are the listening to your concerns? Each of our attorneys take pride in both questioning and listening to our clients. The attorney-client relationship is about finding out how best to help our clients, and to do so requires that we listen and understand.
Our personal injury attorneys, workers compensation lawyers, and trial lawyers get phone calls and emails almost daily from potential clients wanting to know if they can fire their existing attorney, and have us represent them. The simple answer is yes, of course you can fire your existing attorney. However before doing so, we believe it is important that you speak with us first to make sure that we are a right fit for you. If you are on a contingency fee agreement with your prior attorney, you do not have to pay double. We are usually able to work out an arrangement with your prior attorney for an equitable split on the attorneys fees.
Before firing your existing lawyer, we also suggest you contact your lawyer and express with them the reasons why you are frustrated, and see if there is a solution. If the relationship can be repaired, it is often best not to switch attorneys in the middle of a case. However, if the relationship has broken down, or if you have lost faith in your attorney, then changing attorneys may be best.
Like any good relationship, working with an attorney is a two-way street. Whether it is a personal injury attorney, or other trial lawyer, the attorney should learn about your case, learn about what factors may help your case, as well as learn about what may hurt your case. A good lawyer should ask questions to help obtain this information.
However, an attorney cannot do it all alone. A good client helps his or her attorney by providing information. This is important not only during the initial interview, but also as the case progresses. You should keep your attorney informed of changes in circumstances in your case whether they are personal injury matters, or employment or business issues. Keeping your attorney up to date on changes is critical.
It is also important in maintaining a good relationship with an attorney that you help in recognizing the importance of deadlines. The law provides certain deadlines for matters that may not seem significant or important, but in reality can make or break a good case. Some of the important deadlines are providing discovery responses, as well as not missing meetings, doctors’ appointments, or court hearings. What may seem insignificant at the time can have huge ramifications in the future.
Whether hiring a personal injury lawyer, or another type of attorney, some people find it difficult to ask questions about an attorney’s background and qualifications before hiring them. You should not hesitate, as a good relationship with attorney is based on communication. An initial consultation is free with personal injury lawyers because it is much like a job interview for both the client and the personal injury attorney. Possible questions to ask before hiring a personal injury law firm, a bankruptcy lawyer, workers compensation attorney, social security disability lawyer, or a real estate and business attorney may include:
- What are your primary areas of focus, concentration, or specialization?
- How many cases like mine have you handled in the past?

- Will you take my case for a flat fee?
- What are things that I can do to improve my case?
