I, David J. Rivera, am a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. I was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1980. Since 1982, I have practiced in Bakersfield. I specialize in the representation of persons injured in automobile accidents. The majority of automobile accident claims settle without the filing of a lawsuit. However, if the insurer for the at-fault party is not willing to recognize its fault or make a fair settlement offer, I will file a lawsuit in the Kern County Superior Court and litigate the case to its conclusion.
If you wish to discuss the circumstances of any automobile accident and my possible representation, I request that you contact me at the earliest possible time. There is no fee for any consultation. My fee is always contigent on the resolution of the client's claim or case; only at that time is it payable.
He also represents persons accused of criminal law violations, whether felony or misdemeanor. Mr. Rivera is fluent in Spanish and will accept cases for clients who are not fluent in English. Any consultation, whether with respect to an automobile accident or criminal defense matter, is always confidential and without charge.
