A “Right Sized” Law Firm


Mazzarella Law APC is not “big law.” We are, by choice, a small but extremely effective firm. Big is seldom better when selecting a law firm. Most cases are best handled by one attorney with primary responsibility for the case, and a second attorney to assist and provide backup as needed. Add a paralegal or document clerk and a legal assistant, and you have the optimal trial team for 99 percent of all cases. That is how cases are staffed at Mazzarella Law APC. You won’t receive bills with a dozen attorneys, paralegals and clerks billing time. We carefully select, limit and manage the trial team for each case. This avoids the costs inherent in bringing extraneous people up to speed. More important, we ensure that knowledge of the critical facts and law necessary to obtain the best result resides with those who will settle or try the case, and is not spread out among many people.

Of course, some cases demand more time, expertise and resources than others. We can, and have, successfully represented clients in extremely complex cases involving millions of pages of documents, hoards of witnesses and more than $500 million at risk. When a case requires more personnel, an expertise we don’t have, or additional technological support, it is simple and cost-effective to either outsource the work, or associate another lawyer or law firm. And unlike lawyers in large full-service firms who, when adding to their team, select only from the lawyers and other support personnel who are available within their firm, we are free to choose the very best qualified attorneys and other professionals anywhere in San Diego and throughout California. As a result, our clients never need to settle for second best.
