David A. Vukelja

In 1979, David A. Vukelja started a law practice that he continues to pursue with a passion to this day: serious personal injury litigation representing the victims of the carelessness of others and commercial litigation. His practice then, as it is now, is almost exclusively devoted to representing the “little guy” against the insurance companies and the corporations that would deny his clients their rights. Mr. Vukelja has successfully negotiated and litigated multimillion dollar awards in personal injury and commercial litigation.

At Vukelja & dePaula the philosophy is simple – do all you can to accomplish the client’s objective and resolve the client’s conflict amicably, but if litigation is unavoidable, fight hard and fight smart to meet the client’s needs as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
