Law Offices of Clapper and Patti

We have specialized in representing persons with asbestos-related diseases for twenty years. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area,  we have represented clients from throughout the United States and Canada. Our firm does not accept a large number of cases. This allows us to concentrate on the cases that we do accept. We pride ourselves in giving prompt, individual, undivided attention to each of our clients. We answer your questions. We return phone calls promptly. We keep you informed about your case. Our lawyers are good at negotiating good settlements and we are good at going to trial when it is necessary.

We travel to your home. You do not have to travel to California. If there is a legal basis for filing your case in California, you can get money faster in California courts than in most other states. If we can, we will file your case in California. If there is no legal basis for filing your case in California, we will determine which state will give your case the best recovery. The laws differ from state-to-state. Some states are not known for awarding reasonable settlements or jury verdicts to plaintiffs. We will select the state that is best for you. There is no extra charge or cost to you if we file your case in a state other than California.

Jack K. Clapper graduated from Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco with a Juris Doctor in 1978. In the 1960’s he was a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force and served in Vietnam. Since 1980 he has represented victims of asbestos-related diseases. He and the lawyers working with him have tried many cases against asbestos manufacturers and obtained substantial jury verdicts, including several million dollar verdicts.

All cases that we accept are by contingency fee. There is no cost to the client unless and until there is a settlement.
