About the Firm

The Law Firm of Catalano and Catalano was founded by Patrick Catalano in 1979. The California law firm is a general civil trial and appellate practice firm, with an emphasis on handling cases involving landslides, misrepresentations by developers of the square footage of units, along with other misrepresentations and other general and civil business litigation matters. The firm has extensive experience with complex litigation, including multi-plaintiff matters, class actions and construction defect cases.

Many types of civil trial and appellate legal matters involve some type of breach of contract. Patrick Catalano focuses a substantial part of his legal practice in insurance-related legal matters. He began his career working in the insurance industry as an adjuster, underwriter and investigator, and has been representing people against their insurers for more than 25 years. His understanding of the insurance laws for the State of California positions Patrick Catalano to represent insureds in obtaining benefits due under their insurance policy.

Our attorneys also concentrate a portion of their practice in real estate and real property law in California. We represent a range of clients involved in real estate arbitration, mediation, negotiation and litigation. Often times, real property disputes occur from construction defects, or commonly in California, property damage from landslides. The Law Firm of Catalano & Catalano has significant experience resolving landslide cases for homeowners throughout all of California. The firm counsels clients in actions against associations and municipalities, which includes counties, cities and the State, as well as against other entities.

A big portion of our civil law practice involves representing individuals in injury and malpractice cases. Our personal injury practice includes intentional, negligence and product liability cases. The attorneys of the Law Firm of Catalano and Catalano are qualified to evaluate cases of personal injury from medical treatment in order to pursue medical malpractice lawsuits. Similar to medical malpractice, legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer acts negligently.

Catalano & Catalano has offices in San Francisco and San Diego.
