At Medrala | Rivera, Injury Attorneys, we treat you like family.
We understand that after an accident, your life can be drastically altered, which can cause an emotional toll that negatively affects you and your loved ones. When you meet with us, you are meeting directly with experienced and compassionate injury attorneys who are devoted to fully understanding your individual needs. You can rely on us having the resources and the knowledge to ensure that those needs, which can include managing healthcare expenses and retaining alternative forms of transportation, are adequately addressed. We dedicate our practice to providing each and every client with personalized attention and compassionate representation at every stage of the legal process.
At Medrala | Rivera, Injury Attorneys, we also do things differently.
We have a progressive approach to our practice that is responsive to the evolving legal climate and the changing needs of personal injury clients. Because we formerly worked on behalf of the big insurance companies, we are fully aware of the lengths they will go to deprive injured victims of fair compensation. This is why we have a track record of successfully securing our clients with the compensation that they deserve, regardless of the methods utilized by insurance companies to limit recovery.
MEET JAKUB MEDRALA
Jakub P. Medrala is a founder of Medrala Rivera, Prof. Ltd. Jakub is an experienced litigator and trial attorney. Unlike many other personal injury lawyers who accept quick, lowball settlement offers, Jakub is willing to go the extra mile for his clients and litigate with the big insurance companies if they do not give his clients what is owed to them. Also, Jakub is a realist. If you do not have a case, he will not sugarcoat it. He will tell you what you need to hear. His passion, honesty, and realistic outlook in every case is what sets him apart and compels droves of clients from all over California and Nevada to come see him in Las Vegas.
Even though Jakub is extremely busy fighting with insurance companies, drunk drivers, fraudsters, and his cable company, he will always return your phone calls. He is not a typical billboard attorney whom you will never meet. When you come to see Jakub, you will meet with Jakub, not his assistant or Maria (unless you want to see them, which is perfectly fine).
Prior to fighting for personal injury victims, Jakub focused his practice on business, real estate, and employment litigation. Fighting the big boys is what he does best.
Jakub is an accomplished athlete. He tears up the ski slopes and regularly injures himself on a mountain bike. He is an extreme hiker who summited peaks higher than the collective egos of all Vegas and LA attorneys.
Although he is not an ambulance chaser, does not do any heavy hitting with ads, or makes you question humanity with his hairdo or platinum stare, he is still one of the best lawyers in Nevada. His clients are the ones who will tell you that, not his fake Twitter followers.
MEET TRISTAN RIVERA
Tristan F. Rivera is a founder and an injury attorney for Medrala Rivera, Injury Attorneys. Tristan does not just simply have experience like most other attorneys. He has experience that matters.
His diverse background allows him to not only endear himself to each and every client, but also enables him to successfully navigate personal injury claims from their inception to trial.
Tristan was born in Zamboanga City, Philippines, but spent most of his early childhood in Northern California – in Oakland and then, Stockton. The details of his time in California are sketchy, but being raised by immigrant parents, he learned the value of hard work, perseverance and a good fight. It was here that he also learned the art of the hustle.
Once graduating from law school, a local insurance defense firm hired Tristan and he went to the dark side to defend prominent Las Vegas nightclubs and casinos in the courtroom. While working for the insurance companies, Tristan learned the ins and outs of their tactics - knowledge that he now uses to the advantage of his personal injury clients. He knows full well what it takes to make insurance companies pay.
Equipped with this insider knowledge, Tristan successfully transitioned to a law firm where he exclusively represented personal injury plaintiffs against the corporations he had previously defended. Working at this fast-paced environment, he discovered his passion for fighting for the rights of the victims of corporate negligence. Tristan’s clients will tell you that his devotion to personally address their concerns is surpassed only by his passion to get them the results they deserve.
Tristan’s interests extend beyond personal injury. He is involved with Las Vegas Rescue Mission and commits his time to supporting local and national efforts to raise funds and awareness for cancer research.
In his spare time, Tristan makes an effort to go to the gym in a vain attempt to recapture his youth. At one point, he was even an amateur boxer. Being a lawyer, however, has robbed him of the luxury to turn up to work with a black eye, so instead of his fists, he now fights with his mind.
This is a win for him and his clients.
