Stephen J. Estey, founding partner of Estey Bomberger, is known for his competitive spirit and his warm, compassionate nature. Relaxed in the office and a cool customer in the courtroom, Steve has a proven ability to synthesize large amounts of information and couch it in simple terms for the jury. Though a competent and independent trial lawyer, Steve points to his hardworking powerhouse legal team as the reason for the law firm’s notable success. Estey Bomberger has grown from its 1994 inception (with partner and law school friend Mike Bomberger) into one of the most formidable trial firms in California.
Part of Steve’s unique legal approach is to limit himself to only a few cases per year. This allows him to personally invest himself in every case and devote himself wholly to the client’s outcome. This approach lets Steve tackle cases which other attorneys consider “unwinnable” and come away with record-breaking verdicts and settlements. In a recent case against the Los Angeles County Unified School District, which other lawyers had shied away from, an undaunted Steve went in and secured a record-setting $23 million verdict for his client.
Steve enjoys helping victims and their families when they’ve suffered childhood sexual abuse, catastrophic personal injury, automobile, bicycle, motorcycle and truck accidents and injuries, construction and slip and fall accidents, product liability and defects, brain and birth injuries, airplane crash litigation, elder law including nursing home abuse and neglect, insurance bad faith and wrongful death. Steve’s strong sense of family (both immediate and extended) allows this successful, results-oriented attorney to place a high premium on justice for clients and their families.
Steve is the expert on issues involving child sexual molestation in institutions. Some of his more notable interviews are linked below; for a full list click here.
With an eye on the future, Steve enjoys teaching trial skills to other attorneys, and does so at various seminars throughout the country including at the Utah Association for Justice, the American Association for Justice and Consumer Attorneys of San Diego.
Steve is also a popular presenter and guest speaker and has presented to the community at various conferences including the Color of Child Welfare Conference in Milwaukee, the National Center for Victims of Crime, the East Los Angeles Women’s Center, and the San Diego International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment.
