Attorney at Law

Mr. Ercolani established the Ercolani Law Group in 2009 after a career of litigating large-scale cases in downtown Los Angeles. The experience gained from defending billion dollar insurance companies and large corporations gives the firm a distinct advantage in knowing how to most effectively and efficiently manage client’s cases. Mr. Ercolani helps people with legal issues related to personal injury, bankruptcy, business litigation, and insurance matters. Mr. Ercolani prides himself on giving the best legal representation possible with unparalleled personal service.

Mr. Ercolani has successfully represented his clients in jury trials, bench trials, administrative hearings, binding arbitration hearings, and appeals in state and federal courts throughout California. It is Mr. Ercolani’s strong belief that every case must be prepared for a trial from the very beginning of the matter. Some cases can only be fairly resolved by taking the matter to a jury. Mr. Ercolani works closely with his clients to ensure that their cases are prepared for a resolution by trial. When a client’s best interests can be served by a settlement, it will be pursued, but no case can be successfully advanced with settlement as the objective.
