John Fetto

Originally from New York, John A. Fetto has been a successful trial lawyer in California for the last thirty years. He is dedicated solely to representing those injured by the negligence of others and has recovered more than $50 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients.

Mr. Fetto graduated with departmental honors in Philosophy from the University of California, Los Angeles. While studying at UCLA, he also volunteered for Volunteers In Service to America (VISTA), working with juveniles in a youth home in South Central Los Angeles. This experience proved valuable in his current role as a personal injury attorney.

After publishing a mystery novel, Mr. Fetto continued his education, studying law at the University of California, Hastings, where he specialized in trial advocacy. He is also a graduate of the Hastings Trial Advocacy program and a student of noted trial advocate, Gerry Spence. Just a few years out of law school, Mr. Fetto had the opportunity to participate in an appellate case that changed the law regarding third-party warranties. Representing the injured became his mainstay and his calling.

To date, he has prevailed in all of his jury trials and has always won more for his client than the pre-trial settlement offers before trial. He has conducted countless depositions, meditations, arbitrations, and he has achieved many seven figure settlements on behalf of injured Californians. Additionally, Mr. Fetto has never lost a case that he has litigated.

Mr. Fetto has taken on countless personal injury cases, including:

Mr. Fetto is especially skilled at taking the depositions of experts paid for by the defense and dismantling their “expertise” and conclusions to get to the truth. Mr. Fetto prepares every case for trial from the beginning, believing that preparation is the key to maximum settlement value. This philosophy has benefited his clients time and again and has earned him a reputation as a fierce, knowledgeable advocate.
