Bruce Traney has been practicing law in California since admission to the Bar in 1983.  Originally involved in transactional work in the entertainment industry, representing independent film producers in securing international film distribution arrangements and agreements, he eventually found more satisfaction serving as an advocate for the rights of injured consumers, workers and employees.  In that regard, over the last 25 years he has represented individuals in personal injury matters ranging from “routine” automobile accident cases to more complicated medical malpractice matters as well as employment and labor law disputes and Workers’ Compensation claims.  During this time he has successfully advanced the interests of thousands of California’s citizens including representing them in both state and federal court systems.

Mr. Traney has also been a member of many state and national legal organizations which are dedicated to insuring access to the civil justice system to those in need while he is currently a member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and the California Employment Lawyers Association.  Among his many other achievements and pursuits, he is credited with founding the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities in 2006 and served as both its Founding President and Chairman.  He is currently a Director Emeritus on its Board.  He is a true friend of the individual consumer and the legal professionals that serve them.

With offices in Los Angeles, he continues to serve consumers throughout the City of Angels and  the Golden State.  For more information visit www.TraneyLaw.com.

Minh T. Nguyen is a resident of Long Beach, California. He graduated from University of California, Hastings College of the Law with a Concentration in Litigation. While at law school, he was a three year class representative, served on the Admissions Committee and on the Academic Standards Committee, and was a two-year extern to San Francisco Superior Court Judge John E. Munter. He received the Witkin Award in Legal Research and Writing.  He received his Bachelors of Art degree in Economics from UCLA.  He also minored in Asian American Studies at UCLA.

Minh began his legal career at Jeffrey S. Pop & Associates, a boutique personal injury law firm.  He represents catastrophically injured clients in personal injury lawsuits. In 2002, right out of law school working as a certified law student, he took on an orphaned case–a case that had been rejected by three different law firms and could not find a home–from start to finish.  Minh represented a five-year old boy who was injured in an intersection car accident. The driver of the boy’s car was uninsured, unlicensed, on anti-depressant medication, and had made a left turn in front of oncoming traffic. Despite the foregoing, he sued the city of Modesto and proved that the intersection was dangerous. He recovered over $3.5 million for the boy and his family. Since then, he has gone on to recover over $60 million in settlements and verdicts for his clients. He has been recognized by his peers as a Rising Star in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2012 and 2013 for his tireless energy and commitment to his clients.

In 2012, he opened his own law firm, The Law Office of Minh T. Nguyen, ALC. with offices in Beverly Hills and Long Beach.  He believes in justice for every man, woman, and child regardless of age, race, gender or sexual orientation.  If you would like to contact Minh, you can visit his website at nguyenlawyers.com .
