Representing Injured People & Their Families Since 1993

The Law Office of Lawrence M. Knapp, located in Stockton, California, focuses exclusively on personal injury law and personal injury litigation in the Central Valley of California, including Tracy, Lodi, Modesto, San Joaquin County, and Stanislaus county. Lawrence M. Knapp is a highly skilled and dedicated personal injury attorney who has more than twenty years of successful litigation experience representing clients before judges and juries.

Our personal injury cases typically arise from:

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Defective Product Injuries
  • Nursing Home Negligence
  • Premises Liability Injuries
  • Dog Bites/Animal Attacks
  • Brain Injuries
  • Wrongful Death Claims

We believe that, whether dealing with a dog bite or a car accident injury, an injury lawyer must be tough and aggressive with insurance companies while being sympathetic and responsive to clients.

You may have lost wages, your job, and future earning potential. You may be accumulating costly medical bills and expenses because of someone else’s negligence. You or a family member may be experiencing physical pain, mental anguish, suffering or abuse. When you have been injured, you need a talented and experienced personal injury attorney to protect your rights and pursue aggressive litigation strategies in order to obtain the compensation you need and deserve. Mr. Knapp thoroughly researches, investigates, and prepares each case with an understanding of how to work strategically within the justice system to achieve outstanding results for his clients.

Often, effective representation requires the use of technology to ensure the best possible results. We use technology everyday to present the true extent of our clients’ injuries to insurance companies, judges, and juries alike. For example, we have found that the use of graphically enhanced x-rays and computerized re-enactments of accidents are far more effective then mere oral or basic graphical depictions. The use of such technology makes many insurance companies more receptive to settlement – saving our clients the time, stress, and cost of trial. We also use technology to conduct thorough and efficient legal research and to manage our clients’ files.

We Develop Personal Relationships with our Clients

Our injury lawyer and staff work hard to develop a personal relationship with each one of our clients, and they sympathize with the pain that you have suffered.
