Legal Representation for Your Personal Injury Cases

Accidents can happen at any time and there may or may not be insurance to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. You need an experienced legal team to be on your side as insurance companies do not have your interest at heart when they attempt to resolve these claims. Shaffer & Gonor, with a combined 50 years of experience, is here to help you get you the compensation you are entitled to.

“After dealing with my situation for almost five years in total frustration, I decided to seek legal help. I reached out to David and was immediately met with great advice and hands-on personal attention, including weekend follow-ups after hours. The entire case was settled within weeks. I only wish I had contacted him sooner. Immediate relief or so much stress. David’s honesty was very appreciated. Not only were his fees reasonable, but his accounting practice was beyond honest. Can’t say enough. Thanks David!”

"I got David Gonor for an injury back in 2018. Within the first two weeks he had found the owner of the property and sent them a letter to let them know about my injury. David Gonor was very good to communicate with me about my case for every action that he was going to take or I would like to take about the case. We went into a settlement and I was very happy with the outcome. I would recommend this law firm. Thank you guys."

“I was in a horrible car accident that could have left me paralyzed. I wasn't able to work for almost a year and David did the diligence to get me financially stable. I didn't know what I deserved but he did. He went above and beyond on my behalf to make sure I was taken care of. He is very kind, personable, trustworthy, and honest. I would encourage you to hire David as your attorney if you need help.”

"David Gonor did a wonderful job on my fall case. First he set real expectations and kept me informed through the entire process. I was able to get in touch with him any time I needed and he was proactive in getting to me. He also made sure the settlement was timely and worked to get the best settlement available. Working with him was an easy process. Thanks for all you did!”

“I have retained Mr. Gonor's services on several occasions and he has always been honest, fair and up-front. If I didn't have a case, he told me honestly. Or he told me the problems with my case and what my best course of action would be. And he successfully represented me after a serious car crash with a suitable settlement that I was happy with. People complaining in some of the reviews below likely have very unrealistic expectations, or just want to be appeased, instead of hearing advice from a professional attorney. David will continue to be my first call any time I need legal help.”

“My son had an auto accident two years ago and found an attorney in Los Angeles to help him after the driver who ran into him denied liability. After over a year of getting the runaround and never being able to speak with the attorney, he asked for referrals for a new attorney. When he was referred to David Gonor, little did we know what a gem he found. David kept in contact with my son every step of the way. He fought for him and was able to secure a settlement where the previous attorney did absolutely nothing. David was helpful and made Jeremy (My son) feel comfortable and confident that the nightmare of an accident - his car was totaled, he was injured, his watch and glasses were broken - would soon be behind him. I wholeheartedly recommend David Gonor for your legal needs!”
