I want to thank you for all your splendid work on my behalf and your kindness to my wife while I was laid up. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to me to know my situation was in such good hands. Thanks again for all you did and how we were treated.- Tim W.
Martin and Mark are both great! From the beginning they ask all the right questions, they provide proper and timely information, they empathize with your concern and they don’t rest till they find a resolution to your concern. Mother Teresa once said: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.” Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to entrust you with my concern and for making sure that once everything was said and done that I would leave better and happier.- Jimmy R.
I met with Venardi Zurada regarding an issue with a previous employer, both attorneys sat down with me for a couple hours to discuss my potential case. I felt that they listened to what I had to say and they really had my best interest in mind, so I ended up hiring them that same day. Mark Venardi and his assistant Mark Freeman guided me through out the entire process, they always kept great communication with me regarding the status of my case. As we negotiated a settlement, they always reminded me that I have the final say on whether if and when we settle. Finally we reached a fair settlement that got me the best result possible for me! I cant say enough great things about this firm, the attorneys and the entire staff! Thanks again!- W A
Thanks for being the barrier between me and the contentious bias on the other side of the slip and fall. I’ve had a tough go of it and really appriciate that your were there to shoulder the negotiation of a close. I wish you the best in your future cases and good health to you and yours.- Susan
They are real people. Caring, honest, up front and work hard and go out of their way to help you. I have recommended them several times.- Diana K.
I retained Mark after consulting him regarding issues I was experiencing with my employer. Mark’s advice was spot-on, and he was extremely generous with both his time and billing. More importantly, Mark fought diligently for my rights throughout the process ensuring I was not taken advantage of. It can not be overstated how important it is to have a knowledgable attorney with integrity leading the way when you find yourself being bullied by a juggernaut of a corporation. Having Mark in my corner was the best decision I could have possibly made.- Chris C.

We’ve had a long and painful business litigation that lasted about 2 years and ended in our favor. If I had to go back and choose once again, it would have been Martin Zurada again. After 2 years I can write a book about being in a lawsuit and Martin would be a highlight: brilliant, experienced, educated, fast, efficient, hardworking, likable, and affordable. If you are choosing an attorney right now and this is why you are on yelp reading the reviews, talk to Martin. 100% quality at 50% price.- Olga O.

You can be confident in relying on our zealous and effective Oakland litigators:
We have served Northern California for over 35 years.
Our attorneys have been honored with numerous accolades, including SuperLawyers, AV Rating, and Top 100 Trial Attorney Awards.
In our decades of legal service to the community, we have garnered a substantial reputation. We are respected by opposing counsel, feared by insurance companies, and followed by jurors.
We combine Big Firm experience with boutique office attention and care. Several of our attorneys have experience working for the biggest law firms in the country, including the most prominent maritime defense law firm. Our attorneys rely on that big-firm know-how but prefer the personal touch of a smaller firm, allowing us to provide individualized and attentive representation to each of our clients.
We’ve been through it, too. Attorney Mark Venardi had to personally deal with a medical malpractice injury he suffered at a time when he was working a blue-collar job on an offshore oil rig; he knows what it’s like to be a working man dealing with a personal injury. He built his way up to working for the biggest maritime defense firm in the country, before deciding to focus on helping people like himself who were hurt by negligence and mistreatment from others.
We like to fight for the underdog. Attorney Martin Zurada is an immigrant and the son of immigrants who tirelessly worked his way up through education and experience to attain the American dream. Even though he has served in large, high-level litigation law firms, he prefers helping clients directly, fighting against injustices, and securing victories for the little guy who has been wronged.
