Modesto Wrongful Death

There is nothing that anyone can do to bring back a loved one who has been lost due to a tragic accident. There is, however, something that our law firm can do. We can get answers and investigate just how the tragic accident occurred.

If there was someone at fault, we can seek to hold them accountable for your loss, including lost futures. At the Modesto, California, law office of Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Heitlinger, we are here to help you recover just compensation and your sense of stability after a catastrophic loss.

Non-Negotiable: Our Commitment to You

We want to hear what happened. We want to know how your life has been affected. We want to help in the only way that we know how — through diligent, investigation, persistent tracking down of every piece of evidence, accessing experts as needed at any stage of the case, and making ourselves available when you need us — promptly. Finally, we use all the information that we have gathered to build strong, strategic, wrongful death cases that are based on nearly four decades of experience and a deep knowledge of personal injury law.

We involve our clients in their cases. We want you to feel comfortable coming to us with questions. You are the reason we are here. We want to seek justice for you and can offer a calm, confident presence during this difficult time.

We represent all personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis, which means that we charge no attorney fees unless we win results for you.


Please call (209) 340-1110 to arrange to discuss your specific legal matter, get your questions about wrongful death claims answered and learn how we can help you.
