Losing a loved one results in more than just the emotional impact; families must also contend with loss of income, loss of support, and costs related to the death. If you are considering legal action related to a wrongful death, the experienced Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers at Panish Shea & Boyle LLP can help you navigate the legal system and get the best results during a time that can be difficult. We also handle cases of wrongful death in Orange County and across Southern California.
