Personal Injury & Medical Negligence Law Firm


For over 30 years, the attorneys at Hodes Milman have fought to make Southern California a safer place by holding negligent parties accountable. From truck drivers who disobey the law to the negligence of medical professionals, we stand in the gap for honest people who have suffered due to no fault of their own.

If you have found yourself seeking a variety of answers from the legal-specific, to medical and financial recovery, we want to help. If at any time you are ready to speak with a lawyer, please feel free to call us 7 days a week by calling (949) 640-8222.

“I emailed over 200 lawyers and had only ONE lawyer believed in my case. Jeff Milman won my case, and I cannot thank him enough for believing in me!”
– Kymbirley B.


group photoMany firms attempt to differentiate themselves with what seem to be awards and accolades and others still will only consider the monetary value of a case when accepting it. Serious injury cases and the cases we accept usually have a deeper cause that must be recognized. As lawyers, we are counselors of the law, and as counselors, it is important to listen to your case first.

Hodes Milman has decades of jury trial experience, over $200 million in life-changing victories, and we are honored to affiliate with several of the most prestigious awards in the industry. One of our founding partners Dan Hodes has worked in medical malpractice for nearly 40 years and recovered over $35 million for his clients in one year alone.

But what makes us different is that we are highly involved with our clients, and each case is given the fresh perspective and attention it deserves – every time.

We will handle everything for you and work for only what is in your best interest.

This passion for our clients extends to include practice areas for vehicle injuries, personal injury, product liability, medical negligence and insurance bad faith claims.

We have provided legal support for families and individuals throughout Southern California in counties such as Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego and Riverside. We also work closely with Arizona residents and due to our significant medical background, we currently represent individuals in defective pharmaceutical and medical device cases throughout the United States.

Accidents, injuries and corporate malfeasance are not limited to one area; neither are we.

LincolnGive me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend four hours sharpening the axe. – Abraham Lincoln

Prior to becoming the 16th President of the United States, Mr. Lincoln was a trial lawyer and detailed in preparation of his client’s cases. This sentiment is the lifeblood of Hodes Milman as we believe that the best trial lawyers prepare every case as if it were to be heard in front of a judge and jury of our peers. We do this to ensure success at trial, and in order to secure the maximum outcome on our client’s behalf. To learn more about our successful outcomes and trial victories, click here.

When you work with us, you’ll see the difference. A lot of firms are quick to show you numbers, and it is absolutely true that your lawyer should have experience and a strong track record in the area that you require. However, we’ll take it one step further. We also believe that your attorney should put your needs, cares and desires first. Because you deserve more than just compensation for your losses - you deserve a true advocate.
