Francisco (Frank) Viñas has been practicing civil litigation since 1997.
While insurance companies and large corporations often attempt to delay or avoid being held accountable for their negligence or wrongdoing, Mr. Viñas has devoted his career to "uncovering the truth" for this clients and pursuing justice and compensation for their losses. In recent decades, the public has been flooded with misleading commercials, information, and other propaganda aimed at convincing people that all lawsuits are frivolous. Mr. Viñas has made it his professional mission to expose this falsehood and uncover the truth – one client at a time.
Early in his career, Mr. Viñas defended insurance companies, product manufacturers, nursing home owners, and large hospital conglomerates. He knows first hand how these well-funded companies defend against lawsuits and often try to manipulate the legal system in their favor. He also knows what it takes to uncover the truth for his clients and effectively combat these defense litigation tactics.
The moment an injury occurs, corporate defendants with vast resources can – and often do – hire teams of lawyers and investigators to gather favorable statements, admissions, videos, photographs, and other evidence which can be used against an injured person during litigation. On many occasions, Frank has seen victims unknowing waive their legal rights and critical evidence destroyed, hidden, lost, and stolen. That is why Mr. Viñas goes to work early for his clients, thoroughly investigating claims, gathering and preserving essential evidence, documenting the facts of a case, and guarding against any defense attempts to limit his client's rights or ability to prevail at trial.
