About us

Paving the Way in the Fight Against Injustice

We are a majority women-owned and women-managed personal injury law firm in the Bay Area focusing on legal issues and claims that matter the most. We are selective in our battles and choose to do legal work that yields benefits beyond mere damage awards or settlement numbers.

Our team takes on cases in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide.

At Levin Simes, we hone in cases involving sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, and rideshare assault. We also pursue remedies in major areas of law like defective products, vaping injuries, and toxic exposure.

We consciously choose to take on these types of cases because we place a high value on:

  • ✅  Creating New Legal Precedent: There is not much legal precedent yet for many of the cases we handle. By forging ahead in these areas of law, we are laying the groundwork to help protect American citizens from future harm.
  • ✅  Protecting Our Communities: Issues like assault and dangerous product injuries have the potential to affect large portions of our communities at a time. One victory in court could potentially save the health and lives of thousands and thousands of people.
  • ✅  Changing Corporate Culture: Widespread sexual assault and consumer injuries often exist because large companies choose to place profits over people. By leveraging the law against such entities, we are effectuating change on a very large scale.
  • Our work helps ensure that offenders are prevented from harming others, and that dangerous products are removed from the stream of commerce.

If you or a loved one were injured or suffered harm or injustice due to another’s negligence, you may need the representation of experienced personal injury lawyers. Contact us at (415) 426-3000 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation regarding your legal rights.

Our decades of experience means that we have established relationships with various news outlets and channels to inform the public when their health or safety may be in danger.

For our law firm, success doesn’t just mean winning a damages award or a settlement. We understand that the power of legal action also lies in raising awareness of the legal issues and conflicts that affect our daily lives.

We Focus on the Following Types of Personal Injury Claims:

Rideshare Sexual Assault Lawsuits (Uber/Lyft)

Sexual assault cases connected with rideshares like Uber and Lyft are on the rise. Our assault lawyers are working hard to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice, and that rideshare companies are doing their part to keep passengers safe.

Vape Explosion Injury Lawsuits

Vape devices and batteries can explode in the mouths or pockets of consumers, causing serious and even fatal injuries. Our lawyers are leading the way in filing lawsuits against manufacturers and sellers of such dangerous products.

Defective Drugs, Devices, & Products Lawsuits

American consumers should be safe from products that expose them to harm or injury. Our team of lawyers is experienced in handling cases involving dangerous drugs, defective devices, and product recalls.

Sexual Assault & Abuse Lawsuits

Our women-led legal team provides compassionate legal guidance and care for survivors of sex abuse, child sexual assault, and other related cases. A large part of our practice is focused on prosecuting sex offenders and creating safer environments in our communities.

Verdicts & Settlements: Case Victory Highlights

Our law firm has an extensive history of success in large trial verdicts and major settlement negotiations.

Our personal injury attorneys have collectively collected hundreds of millions on behalf of our clients, and have represented hundreds of families in key injury cases. As national lead attorneys and plaintiff steering attorneys, our team has recovered billions in settlements against large corporations.

  • Every case that our firm has successfully tried before a jury was led by a trial team consisting of at least one female attorney. As a women-led law firm, we are attuned to the special needs and requirements of our client base.

Since we selectively handle a small number of cases at any given time, our trial attorneys can be deeply involved in each case right from the beginning. The focus and determination our team exhibits in each case has resulted in milestone victories including: 

  • An $830 million mesh injury settlement, led by our team

  • A $208 million mesothelioma verdict — the largest on record in California

  • A $5.2 million verdict in connection with asbestos exposure

  • A $1.4 million verdict against a major tobacco company

We understand that the majority of legal issues settle without the need to undergo a full trial. However, we approach each case and prepare as if we are going to trial, which gives us the leverage and strategy needed to maximize the outcome for our clients.

While no amount of monetary assistance can ever undo the experience of an injury or assault, we believe that such awards help improve the quality of life for our clients. They also serve as deterrents for negligent actors that place their own interests above the safety and health of American citizens.
