Attorney Profile

With a deep-rooted passion for helping those who have suffered wrongdoing, Sandra Ribera Speed is the founder of Ribera Law. She advocates for people in personal injury, employment law and elder abuse cases in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout California. In the courtroom and in settlement negotiations, Ms. Speed remains steadfast in her pursuit of justice for clients.

In 1999, Ms. Speed received a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and graduated cum laude from Loyola Marymount University. She then attended Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, earning a Juris Doctor in 2004.

Since earning her law degree, Ms. Speed has focused on representing victims of negligence. She has played a role in a number of multimillion-dollar cases. Early in her career, she was the youngest member of the team responsible for representing the heirs of Christopher Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G., in a $360 million wrongful death claim filed against the Los Angeles Police Department. Ms. Speed has also represented Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, in a number of issues, including a wrongful death action.

On any case, be it a high-profile issue or a seemingly cut-and-dry fender bender, Ms. Speed gives every client her undivided attention. She takes her role seriously, as she understands how these incidents affect someone on a number of levels: financially, physically and emotionally. Ms. Speed is a San Francisco native, and she knows the community and the situations her clients are facing.

Active in the legal community, Ms. Speed is on the board of directors for the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association. She is also a member of the Edward J. McFetridge American Inn of Court and the Consumer Attorneys of California.
