Lamb & Frischer
Law Firm, LLP

Personal Injury & Employment Trial Lawyers.

Announcing our 2021 grand opening of a Monterey office with local attorney Kenneth Kroopf, Esq. joining our firm.

Fighting for justice isn’t easy.
Let us do the work.

Our time is spent on you. This is our core philosophy. Lawsuits are unique, and you need lawyers who have time to investigate your case as well as time to advise you through the process.

While the harm you suffered may be life changing, making a claim for your injuries should not consume your life. Lamb & Frischer are experienced advocates and counselors who handle your legal claim for you, so that you can move on with the rest of your life.

Contact us and learn how we are different. At Lamb & Frischer, it is paramount that clients can talk directly to their attorney, because one of the biggest state bar complaints about other firms is difficulty talking to an attorney. Therefore, at Lamb & Frischer, your claim will be evaluated by an attorney, not a team of intake staff. Our clients talk regularly with attorneys, not case managers.

We take the vast majority of our cases on contingency fees and we advance the costs of your case.

We Focus On You
