I’m Michael Cernyar founder of the Law Offices of Michael K. Cernyar. Early in my career I was with the Cochran Firm and nominated as their best criminal defense attorney.

I started this firm more than 11 years ago bringing with me the same values that I had at the Cochran Firm. I wanted to help people, regular everyday folks that suffered injustice. I wanted to build a law firm being the very best trial lawyer in the country to help protect people.

And I wanted to ensure that this office did something every day to make this world a better place for all of us, including my child and your loved ones. I am very proud to say that it's what this firm has been able to do.

What makes this office different than other law offices is that I am a trial lawyer. This office is set up to go to trial on behalf of our clients and I do it all the time. I am the type of lawyer that gets in front of the jury and asks for justice. And the results prove that I do it well.

I have put together a team second to none. I'm a member of The National Trial Lawyers, Top 100 Trial Lawyers, I'm ranked 10 Best in California, and I’m ranked 3 Best Southern California. From top to bottom this office strives to be the very best in the courtroom. I'm very proud of what this office does every day.
