Over the last decade I’ve received excellent advice and guidance from attorneys Eric Patrick and Martin Zurada of Venardi Zurada LLP. When I have a question around Employment Law or a potential Personal Injury dispute, they are always my first call. They always respond promptly and demonstrate a degree of professionalism and caring that puts me at ease. Eric, in particular, is an incredible listener and communicates in a clear, straightforward way that can easily be followed. You don’t have to have a law degree to understand him. He’s a straight talker. I recommend Martin and Eric without hesitation to anyone and will continue to work with them in the future if the need arises.- Brendan D.

After a bad bike accident caused by an uncovered EBMUD access hole in the middle of the street I was referred by a friend of a friend to Terry Buller to handle recovering damages from my accident. Terry put me in the very capable hands of Martin Zurada 3 years ago to begin work on the case. I was informed at my first meeting that any case involving the city takes a very long time to settle so I was immediately prepared for a long process. Over the course of three years Martin and Christina were in constant contact guiding me through every step of the way. The entire team at Venardi Zurada went above and beyond expectations at every step. I was always well prepared and well informed while navigating the very unfamiliar territory of lawsuits and legal jargon and paperwork. Even through the uncertainty of the pandemic Martin kept things moving and almost three years to the day after the accident we reached a settlement. I am so appreciative of all the hard work that Martin and Christina and the entire team of excellent folks at Venardi Zurada did for me, the knowledge, professionalism, and experience they have to guide people through the process, and of course the results after the long drawn out process were as life changing as the accident itself, but in a much more pleasant way. Thank you.- Shawn V.
Both Mr. Zurada and Mr. Venardi are very experienced and highly-skilled in litigation, but more importantly, they treat their clients with the UTMOST respect and kindness. I cannot stress how incredibly wonderful they both are, as well as their staff. They will work and fight for you as one of their own! I've had the pleasure of working with them throughout two lawsuits, both of which they worked on contingency. They successfully negotiated a great settlement each time. I HIGHLY recommend Venardi and Zurada for any of your litigation needs. They really changed my life during a dark period in my young adult years, and I cannot thank them enough for that.- Meghan B.
Compassionate and empathetic support for their clients while working as a team in a professional, businesslike manner to reach a common goal.- Christoph L.
Mark is a thorough, skilled, and effective advocate for his clients. I never hesitate to refer matters to him because I know he'll do an excellent job.- Robert B.
I needed a reputable personal injury, firm to represent me against a very big corporation. I was injured by a careless employee who hit me with some equipment. I was completely blameless because I was hit from behind. This big corporation fought tooth and nail for three years, but my attorneys, Mr. Venardi, and Mr. Mark Freeman, and the paralegal, Christina Souza fought for me and brought about the very best result I could have without going to court. Had we gone to court the expenses would have been astronomical and I would have been left with about the same settlement. They were able to negotiate for me without going to court. They never backed down, and I felt like they really had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend them. They are fair. They are ethical, and they are compassionate. I hope I never need an attorney ever again but if YOU do, call I would give them Venardi Zurada LLP and feel comfortable with their staff, especially Mr. Mark Freeman, and Ms. Christina Souza.- Kimberly S.
It is almost impossible to find a better Attorney than Mark. His professional approach, quick understanding of the issues, development of a sound strategy, meticulous preparation of petitions and presentation in the courts is unbeatable.He is a great human being with outstanding integrity , proficiency and humility.

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 appreciate 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.
