I don’t know where I’d be right now without Peter. He did the heavy lifting while I worked at getting better. Peter, you’re a rockstar, thanks.

ABOUT PETER M. GIMBEL

Since completing law school at Santa Clara University in 2010, I have been representing clients in State and Federal courts throughout Northern California. In 2011, I expanded beyond criminal defense and began representing injured workers before the Workers’ Compensation courts. Since 2011, I have appeared at thousands of hearings and litigated hundreds of cases to resolution at the San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose Workers’ Compensation courts. Prior to opening my firm in Redwood City, I worked for a high volume Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury law firm located in Burlingame. During my time there, I was able to gain valuable litigation experience by litigating hundreds of cases to resolution. Since 2011, I have gained a reputation as a skilled and aggressive litigator. 

 

My Mission

Ever since I was a kid, I always rooted for the underdog. The law is supposed to treat all people equally, however, it often doesn’t unless you have a strong advocate on your side. I represent regular people  who have been injured at work. I know how overwhelming it can be to try and keep your finances in order while trying to fight for medical treatment and benefits from an insurance company that does not care about you.  Injured workers often do not know how to navigate a complex insurance bureaucracy that is designed to limit care and costs so that the insurance companies can a make a profit. I fight for regular people who find themselves in difficult, if not impossible, situations. I have devoted my career to helping the little guy succeed. At my office I tailor a legal strategy for each individual client--there is no one size fits all approach. I fight tirelessly so that my clients receive every benefit, protection and defense available under the law. 


Testimonials

I can’t say enough good things about my attorney Peter Gimbel. After my injury case was denied by Worker’s Comp insurance I contacted Peter and everything changed. I got the health care that I needed as well as the compensation that I was entitled to. Peter was the advocate that I needed to guide me throughout the legal process, answer my questions, and get the best outcome.

Mr. Gimbel is highly professional, considerate and punctual in his legal practice. Throughout our case Mr. Gimbel is extremely proactive at setting up meetings that involve both my family and the defendant. Mr. Gimbel is also a very honest attorney. During our meetings he had always explained the tiniest details and restrictions in a candid manner which made seemingly difficult terms and concepts well-understood after his explanation. I highly recommend Mr. Gimbel to anyone seeking help with Workers Compensation cases.
— Stanley, Workers' Compensation Client
I sincerely want to thank Peter Gimbel and his staff for helping me with my workers comp case. He really took the time to explain everything that was going on in great detail and answered all my questions. Even when I called or emailed, I always got a prompt answer. His attention to detail is impressive. It was obvious he’s extremely adept and experienced at handling injuries like mine (neck, back, shoulder and hip) and got me the best award possible. Do yourself a favor and call this man asap, just talking with him, you will see what I did.
