Prior to founding the firm, Chris Movafagh (Aka Chris Mova), was a law clerk at one of the biggest and most prestigious personal injury firms in Southern California where he honed his legal tactics and negotiation skills. 

He saw a problem with the firm he worked for and every other big personal injury law firm. Each client was not treated as a human, but rather as a number. The goal of these big firms was to retain as many clients per month as possible and settle as many cases as possible. Chris did not think this was fair to the client because there was always money left on the table for the client. But the big firms would always push their client to accept the lowball offer. 

Chris saw this and wanted to make a difference, even if it was small. He wanted to only take on a handful of clients and treat each of his clients like the unique person they are; each with a different story of their pain and suffering. Chris made it his personal goal to hand pick the best team to help him reach his goal of creating the Best Personal Injury Law Firm San Diego has seen. 

Today, Chris Mova is well respected across the country for helping lawyers achieve spectacular awards and settlements on behalf of their clients. He coaches personal injury lawyers in other states on how to properly setup a personal injury case, how to negotiate it, and how to litigate it, especially cases involving spinal injury and brain injuries. 

If you are interested in having Chris Mova and his staff represent you, please call us now and Chris or one of his hand picked team members will assist you.

When it comes to matters of personal health, one of the absolute most common problems that you’ll find cropping up among patients from every demographic that can be treated by back specialists is what is known as LBP, also known as lower back pain. In the course of one’s life, you actually have an 80% chance of experiencing the effects of lower back pain at some point in your adult life. Injuries to the back can occur in a wide number of situations, such as a motor vehicle accident, a workplace incident, or slipping and falling. In certain situations, even a small amount of trauma to the back can lead to paralysis, nerve damage, chronic pain, and other painful symptoms. A victim could potentially face years of medical problems.Depending on the extent of the damage, the victim of a back injury and their families could encounter crippling financial burdens as a result. In addition to immediate costs like hospital bills, those facing severe injuries may need long-term care and specialized equipment. For example, paralysis could require numerous surgeries, years of rehabilitation, wheelchairs, and other equipment for daily needs, in addition to lost opportunities to work.

Both long term and short-term damage can lead to prolonged back injuries. While a car accident or fall from a height can cause immediate, concentrated trauma, decades of muscle strain can turn into chronic pain and lifelong complications. To prevent injuries like these, workers can take certain precautions, including receiving training on safe lifting techniques. Safety equipment such as harnesses can reduce the risks of injuries on the job, and emergency training can help all individuals know how to react in the case of a back injury. Correct treatment after an injury can also make a huge difference, as jarring a victim after trauma to the spinal cord can increase nerve damage and the risk of paralysis.

I recently had a case where a large insurance firm denied my claim despite their insured admitting guilt. After contacting Chris, he walked me through the steps I should take which included filing a small claims case. Chris’s quick advice on matters as simple as court room etiquette, posture and deference, I believe made a difference in my case and as a result I won the case. He’s a consummate professional and I will continue to use him for legal consul.
I got in a pretty bad car accident in July of 2015. I was rear ended so bad that my car was labeled as a total loss. I looked around for a good attorney for a few weeks. After reading reviews, and talking to friends, the name Chris Mova with Mova Law Group came up the most. So, I decided to call him to see if I wanted to hire him. Chris personally talked to me on the phone, explained what my options were and asked me if I wished to meet him face-to-face at his office. I met him at his office a few days later and I decided to hire him. Chris fought hard with the insurance company, they weren't being reasonable in the beginning. It wasn't until he showed them a copy of the lawsuit he planned on filing that they finally decided to pay for my injury. He is as aggressive of a lawyer as I have seen (based on his letters to the insurance company), but yet so friendly and nice with me.
Listen up people! By far the best experience I've had with an attorney. Chris and his team really care about your well being to get you medical attention. I had a serious car accident in August 2018. The other party had no insurance or license. Therefore, because I did have uninsured motorist insurance, Mova Law Group was able to leverage my uninsured motorist funds to pay his costs, my medical attention costs and a settlement check to cover additionally expenses which turned out to be 2 times what I thought and I received that check within 7 months. Thank you Mova Law Group.
I was hit by an uninsured driver and didn’t know what to do next. I found Chris online and the rest was such a relief. Paola is also assisting me by handling all of my medical appointments and keeping my case in order. We haven’t settled yet, but we will soon!
