About Us

Carpenter Zuckerman & Rowley

Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley was founded on the principle that justice for injured people is more important than insurance company profits.

CZ&R is one of the largest law firms in the State of California exclusively dedicated to the representation of injured people.

Because of our size and our strength, CZ&R has the resources to match the firepower of big insurance companies which do everything in their power to try to get a discount on the payment of legitimate claims.

Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley will work with you on a contingency fee arrangement. If there is no recovery, you pay no fee.

CZ&R is dedicated to the pursuit of justice. We will never settle for anything less than the maximum compensation for your injuries.

CZ&R can arrange for you to see top medical specialists. We can help you receive the medical care you need in order to return to the life that you had before you were injured.
