Personal Injury

Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Chou bring nearly 60 years of combined personal injury experience to our firm.

As founding partner of O’Brien & Harrington in San Francisco, Mr. O’Brien’s emphasis was on representing injured plaintiffs.  As plaintiff’s counsel, Mr. O’Brien has tried and settled many cases of six and seven figures.

Justin Chou spent six years at the celebrated plaintiffs’ personal injury firm Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger.  At Walkup, he litigated six and seven-figure personal injury cases, advocating for those who had suffered catastrophic injury and wrongful death.  In 2018, Mr. Chou won a $1,000,000 jury verdict for the widow and daughter of a retired man who was struck and killed by a falling tree at a public park in San Jose (Shi v. City of San Jose).  At Commins & Knudsen, Mr. Chou continues to work on serious injury and wrongful death cases.
