California Accident Attorneys

Welcome to Cunningham Law Group, a Professional Corporation. We have represented California accident victims such as you for over forty-two years. It is your job to get well. It is our job to handle all the rest with an eye toward getting the best financial result for you. Our attorneys will review the facts of your case. If your case is the kind of case the firm will accept, we will offer to represent you.

However, there is absolutely no obligation on your part to retain the firm, and no charge for the initial telephone conversation. If we represent you, your case is handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing unless and until we collect money for you.
