Attorney David Lederer is a founding partner of Lederer and Nojima, LLP, a reputable civil litigation firm located in Los Angeles. Mr. Lederer is known for his extensive litigation, mediation and negotiation experience in numerous areas of law, including personal injury and tort-related cases, bankruptcy law, employment and labor law, real estate law, contract law, insurance law, entertainment law, and media law. His expertise in personal injury, specifically cases that arise from automobile, truck, and motorcycle accidents, is evidenced by the rightfully-compensated settlements he has achieved for his many clients.
Mr. Lederer's purpose is to "serve the people that need us in the best way possible. Those who are aggrieved are entitled to compensation. Those who are falsely accused are entitled to reinstatement. Nothing is more satisfying and rewarding than trying a case in the pursuit of justice." Mr. Lederer's desire to serve his clientele is demonstrated in the large number and percentage of cases that have been brought to successful settlement on his clients’ behalf. Wrongful death cases, brain injury cases, burn injury cases, and even daycare injury cases have all been successfully litigated, settled, mediated or resolved by Mr. Lederer. Cases involving dog bite injuries, bus accidents, car accidents, and other physically debilitating injuries require immense proficiency, scrutiny, and care, as the future well-being of a client may be dependent upon the outcome of the case. Mr. Lederer puts forth great effort and resilience to ensure appropriate compensation for his clients’ loss. His genuine concern for the recovery of each of his clients is what sets him apart as a true, ethical, legal professional.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Lederer received his Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Syracuse University. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Pepperdine University in 1992, and has been practicing for 20 years. He is happily married with a young daughter and, despite a demanding and hectic schedule, quality family time is a matter of high priority for Mr. Lederer. "My wife is interested in my work and is a source of valuable insight for me. She always offers a fresh perspective." In his free time, Mr. Lederer enjoys golfing and horse racing.
Although Mr. Lederer is frequently in and out of court, all of his clients can attest to being in constant communication with Mr. Lederer, whether by personal meetings, phone calls, or emails. He is admitted to practice in the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, United States Federal District Court, Northern District of California, Eastern District of California, Central District of California, and Southern District of California.
