Our Law Firm's Featured Practice Areas
Motor Vehicle Accidents
There are nearly 200,000 motor vehicle accidents that result in injury every year in California alone. The state’s comparative negligence laws mean that more than one party can be responsible — and the insurance companies aren’t designed to be on your side. Our Bakersfield firm has the experience to help you navigate the complexities of car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents.
Railroad Worker Injuries
Mr. Ganong has earned substantial verdicts and settlements for individuals impacted by railroad worker injuries. Our firm is well-versed in the provisions and protections outlined by the Federal Employers’ Liability Act, a law that holds railroad officers, agents, and employees responsible for carelessness and negligence. If you are an injured railroad worker — or have a family member that was injured on the job — our FELA injury attorney is here for you.
Oil and Gas Law
Mr. Ganong has close ties with the California oil and gas industry. His grandfather was a career driller and his father was an oil and gas geologist. Mr. Ganong himself worked on drilling rigs in oil and gas fields to earn money for college. Thanks to this background, he brings nuanced expertise and provides first-class legal work for contract negotiations, regulatory compliance, operating agreement breaches, and beyond.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Whether you or a family member has suffered a head injury due to a motor vehicle accident, recreational activity, or physical altercation, our personal injury lawyer can help you prepare for the significant life changes ahead.

You Don’t Pay Unless We Win

In addition to free, no-obligation consultations, our firm works on a contingency fee basis in nearly every case.
