Firm: Welebir Tierney & Weck
When it comes to fighting for your rights after suffering an injury due to someone else’s conduct, your attorney’s experience may be the most important factor in the size of your serious injury settlement or jury award. If your lawyer isn’t ready to take your case all the way to trial, you really have to question the commitment. Many lawyers call themselves “trial lawyers.” at Welebir Tierney & Weck, we are proud to be known in the community as “Trial Lawyers”.
Douglas F. Welebir is the founder of Welebir Tierney & Weck. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from La Sierra College in 1962 and then attended the University of Southern California School of Law where he earned his J.D. degree in 1965.
In 1970, Mr. Welebir began specializing exclusively in plaintiffs’ personal injury law and went on to form the predecessor to this firm in 1973. From 1970 to 1974, Mr. Welebir served as the first mayor of the city of Loma Linda, California.
Mr. Welebir served as lead plaintiff’s counsel in the Stringfellow Acid Pits Trial case that resulted in a plaintiffs’ verdict and ultimately a $110 million settlement for the 4,300 plaintiffs. He has also successfully represented many other clients throughout the State of California with individual settlements and verdicts each in excess of $1 million.
Mr. Welebir’s current practice focuses on the representation of individuals and families of those seriously injured or killed by defective products or as a result of motor vehicle, railroad, big-rig truck, motorcycle, aviation or highway design accidents and animal attacks. He is “AV” rated** by Martindale-Hubbell.
