Paul Asterlin, Esq.

"If your attorney says there's no such thing as creative lawyering, find a new attorney."

I have been assisting clients in Northern and Southern California as a licensed attorney since 2002.

Prior to starting my own firm, I worked at Tennant & Ingram, Sacramento and Wilke, Fleury, Hoffelt, Gould & Birney LLP, Sacramento, and feel fortunate to have learned valuable litigation and trial skills from some of the best and most ethical attorneys I have met. 

My clients get the benefit of the skills I learned during my eight years of defending General Liability, Medical Malpractice, and Skilled Nursing Homes claims with reputable firms.

I am passionate and driven to achieve excellent outcomes for my clients. Being entrusted with your legal matter is a great honor.
