Paralegal & Notary Public



Welcome to The Law Offices of Jeffrey L. Tade. The firm can best be described as a general civil litigation law firm with an emphasis on personal injury, workers' compensation, employment law, labor law and civil rights litigation.

Our goal is to provide quality professional legal representation effectively and efficiently and to treat our clients with respect and compassion.  We are committed to representing only victims and their families who suffer serious injuries or death from industrial (work-related) accidents and accidents caused by the fault of negligent third parties such as automobile, truck, bus, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian and construction site accidents.  Negligent third parties also include manufacturers and distributors of defective products, and public entities such as cities, counties and the State for dangerous and defective road conditions.  We also handle employment-related disputes representing only employees for wage and labor violations, discrimination, harassment and civil rights violations.

We are committed to providing professional and personalized representation for each of our clients utilizing state-of-the-art technology to provide efficient and cost-effective legal services. We accept cases only where we feel we can achieve a successful result for the client. We have extensive experience in representing both plaintiffs and defendants which gives us a greater understanding of how insurance companies and adverse parties evaluate and settle their claims. We invest the time and expense to meticulously prepare every case as if it will proceed to trial and we find that this approach achieves the best possible outcome and maximizes results even when the case is resolved prior to trial by informal settlement, mediation or arbitration.

If you are seeking a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced attorney to represent you, please contact us to arrange a mutually convenient appointment. We offer free consultations on personal injury and worker' compensation cases.

Our office has a Spanish speaking staff and is centrally located in Salinas, California with services provided to the California Central Coast communities including Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties.

Our firm handles all types of civil
disputes including simple and complex personal injury cases, wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, workers’ compensation, employment-related disputes and discrimination cases.  We employ a pragmatic philosophy of seeking prompt resolution of disputes. This is accomplished by aggressively and judiciously preparing each case as if it were to go to trial.  While it is true that more than 90% of civil cases settle before trial, being prepared and willing to go the distance maximizes settlement results. While the goal is prompt resolution of disputes through alternative dispute resolution, it is sometimes not possible and we are prepared to litigate cases to trial when necessary.

Personal injury, workers’ compensation, employment and civil rights law require a certain level of tenacity and the ability to overcome many challenges and obstacles unique to these areas of law.  We have a history of going beyond the routine handling of such matters on behalf of our clients. We have handled complex cases involving “cross-over” issues in which an injured worker (entitled to workers’ compensation benefits) was also entitled to make a claim against a third party (personal injury) for the same accident such as a motor vehicle accident or a defective machine the worker was operating. In other cases, the injured worker had concurrent claims for wage and labor violations in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Other cases involved cross-over issues of employment discrimination and workers’ compensation.

Through aggressive trial advocacy and meticulous preparation, we are prepared to overcome those challenges and have a significant track record of successfully handling such complex areas of the law. We have an extensive history of successfully litigating the various cross-over issues in the various forums.  We are passionate about the practice of law and strive to provide the most effective legal representation possible while maintaining compassion and respect for our clients.
