Our Oakland Office

Taking on industry giants in the Bay Area and nationwide

Gibbs Law Group’s attorneys have been advocating successfully on behalf of consumers, whistleblowers, and people injured by defective drugs and medical devices for nearly 20 years. Our Oakland-based national litigation firm takes on industry giants in the Bay Area to bring justice to consumers when companies engage in fraudulent conduct, and when their warranties, products, and services fail.

Our Oakland labor and employment lawyers and our consumer protection attorneys hold leadership positions in the San Francisco Bar Association and the Consumer Attorneys of California, and are members of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association; the Alameda County Bar Association; and the Queen’s Bench Bar Association of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our team members live in Oakland and its surrounding suburbs and take advantage of opportunities to engage professionally and personally with the East Bay’s diverse community.
