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.

How we can help you in your facet joint injury case

Facet joint syndrome is the medical term used to describe lower back pain, usually chronic in nature, that originates from the facet joints of the spine. Each vertebra of the back was two pairs of facet joints, one located on the upper part of the bone and the other on the lower part. These joints link the back of the spine together, provide spinal stability and control motion, such as bending and twisting, between the vertebrae.

As in other joints that can become inflamed due to severe or long term injuries, such as those in the fingers and knees, arthritis in the facet joints can progress into chronic pain syndrome, resulting in lifelong stiffness and pain. Facet joints are directly linked with the portion of the spinal cord located in the neck. Therefore, injured victims may also experience difficulties with neck rotation and migraine headaches.

Accidents Frequently Resulting in Facet Joint Syndrome

  • Automobile Accidents
  • Motorcycle and Bicycle
  • Accidents
  • Truck Collisions
  • Bus Incidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Incidents

Lower back pain is one of the most frequently reported symptoms of Facet Joint Syndrome. In certain cases, the pain will radiate from the lower back into the buttocks and the upper portions of the leg. The inflammation of the joints causes them to be painful and stiff, which can create struggles with spinal cord-based movements, such as getting up from a seated position or standing up straight. It is not uncommon for injured victims suffering from facet joint syndrome to walk in a hunchback position due to their physical limitations. Certainly, individuals suffering from facet joint syndrome as the result of a personal injury will require a specialized physician from whom they can obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment protocol, such as anti-inflammatory medications and local anesthetic injections. However, just as important is an experienced facet joint syndrome and chronic pain injury lawyer to protect your legal rights.

Personal injury victims who are suffering from chronic pain must mitigate their damages and ensure that their personal injury claims are preserved in order to obtain maximum monetary recovery for their injuries. Contact Mova Law Group today for a free consultation and top-rated legal advice and guidance.

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!
