Attorney Profile

A highly regarded personal injury and wrongful death litigation attorney who now focuses his practice primarily on bicycle accidents, Max Draitser is the founder of Max Draitser - Southern California Bicycle Attorneys. From the firm's main office in Los Angeles and with satellite offices throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties, he provides skillful representation to clients who have suffered economic and noneconomic losses due to the negligence of other persons or entities. Mr. Draitser is admitted to practice before all California state courts.

Throughout his career, Mr. Draitser has been able to obtain numerous sizable negotiated settlements as well as jury awards on behalf of his clients. The types of bicycle cases that he now handles have arisen out of such instances as automobile-bike collisions as well as those involving governmental liability. These latter matters have included potholes, bike path hazards, improperly maintained trials, dangerous storm grates and inadequate signage. In addition to his bicycle clients, Mr. Draitser has assisted people who have been harmed in other types of incidents, including slips and falls in stores and on sidewalks as well as motor vehicle crashes. One of his notable recoveries on behalf of a client was in a wrongful death action based on premises liability that resulted in a $950,000 award. These and other successes have earned Mr. Draitser a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Draitser attended the University of California, San Diego, and he received a Bachelor of Arts in psychology in 1995. He then went on to pursue his legal education at the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2000. An avid cyclist, Mr. Draitser is a supporter of several organizations devoted to bicycle safety.
