People often ask me why do you practice personal injury law. Don’t a lot of people define you as an “ambulance chaser”?

It certainly is true that many people look down upon personal injury attorneys as simply opportunists who want to take advantage of a person in a bad situation. However, ask any of my past and present clients what they think, and I believe they will all tell you that without my representation or my firm’s representation, they would not have had a chance.

People do not realize that the law of personal injury and wrongful death is extremely complicated and full of legal pitfalls and technicalities. There is nothing straight forward about any personal injury case. Each case is different based upon the facts and circumstances. many factors come into play when representing injured clients, and a full knowledge of all the possible ramifications that could occur in any one case is absolutely important.

I must say that it is an extremely rewarding experience once a case has been pursued to completion and the client is grateful for the result. I certainly cannot guarantee that all of our results are 100% satisfactory to the client. We sometimes lose, but we are more often successful in obtaining a favorable result for our client. A successful outcome is also very rewarding when one realizes that you are up against high powered and well funded insurance carriers and corporations that can outspend you 10 to 1. Therefore, one needs the knowledge of the law, as well as an aggressive attitude in order to overcome such obstacles.

I have practiced personal injury law for over 30 years. During that time I have learned a great deal about the law, how to succeed and how to obtain a successful outcome for an injured client.

The philosophy of our law firm is clear, in that we have built a firm dedicated to personalized and family-oriented principles, in which the client will always be represented by an attorney that they can talk to, meet with and feel comfortable with. The key to any successful attorney/client relationship is trust. We feel we have earned the trust of thousands of our clients whom we have represented over the years.

If you are looking for a conglomerate firm with hundreds of lawyers, you probably will not want to consult with Legler & Flynn. However, if you are interested in speaking with an attorney one on one, as well as a community oriented organization that has been around the Manatee/Sarasota area for over 20 years, then you may want to speak with one of our attorneys.

Mason-Rashtian_Head-Shot-copy.jpg

Mason has been litigating personal injury cases since 1997. Before opening his own practice Mr. Rashtian worked with prestigious law firms in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, primarily as a litigation attorney on the defense side.

In 2006, Mr. Rashtian opened his own practice and now handles litigation matters on the plaintiff’s (injured) side. Thus, he brings a unique perspective to litigation, having represented parties on both sides..

Aside from Mason’s experience as a personal injury lawyer in Santa Clarita California, his reputation is the firm’s greatest asset. Nearly all clients come to The Mason Law Firm on referral from former clients. Due to the firm’s reliance on referrals, client satisfaction is our fundamental goal. Mason Rashtian has always been focused on helping people through difficult situations. He became a Lawyer and has integrated this personal philosophy into his practice so that he could help people through some of the most stressful situations they will face in life.

Mason has personally handled thousands of cases from start to finish. He has appeared in courtrooms (including trials), settlement conferences, depositions, arbitrations, mediations and hearings across Southern California.

What is Personal Injury? When someone is physically or emotionally injured. The laws covering personal injury allow the injured party to receive compensation for damages caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. Personal injury laws place demands on its citizens not to harm others. This means that not only should people be safe from harm, but their possessions should be safe from harm too. If you are injured you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.

Liability can caused by intentional acts or by negligence.

    • An intentional act is one designed to cause harm or injury. The person committing the act wants to harm you
    • A negligent act occurs when someone fails to take appropriate action and you are harmed as a result of that failure.

Another form of personal injury law covers strict liability (product liability)

    • The product may be defective because of an error in the manufacturing process
    • Consumers are not warned of possible bad effects from the use of the product.
    • The product has design flaw that makes it dangerous.

In most personal injury cases, the victim must have suffered some sort of physical, mental, and/or financial harm to have a claim for damages.

If you believe your personal injury was caused by the carelessness or intentional act of another, and you live in Southern California, you may want to contact Mason Rashtian to discuss your possible case.

You should call as soon as it is convenient to do so and avoid discussing personal injuries with strangers and/or insurance representative who are not from your own insurance company. However, you should be cooperative with the police, your own treating physicians and your own insurance company.

His father, an owner of an electrical contracting business, and his mother, a registered nurse, instilled in him early the importance of working hard and helping others in the community. Adam watched his father and mother become pillars in the community by donating their time and resources to local schools, churches, and nonprofit organizations. Inspired by his family and other leaders in his community, Adam pursued a life of public service.

While attending one of the most prestigious colleges in the world, U.C. Berkeley, Adam immediately began helping the community by working with a California State Senator. Adam interfaced directly with local constituents by assisting the Senator’s office at public policy debates and community forums. Adam’s legislative experience peaked his interest in the law and he soon began working at the state courthouse in Oakland, California. After graduating U.C. Berkeley, Adam received a full tuition merit scholarship to law school in San Diego, California, where his legal career took off.

Law school is where Adam first learned how to become a premiere trial attorney. Adam ranked amongst the top of his class and often obtained the highest grade in his challenging law school courses. After becoming part of the school’s selective and highly competitive Law Review, Adam competed in trial competitions and soon gained the recognition of his peers as a talented litigator.

Due to his trial skills and impressive scholastic abilities, Adam was hand-picked to work with the U.S. Navy JAG Corps in San Diego to help defend military members facing serious criminal charges.

Jesse Gonzalez, was born on July 11th, 1968 in McAllen, the city he calls home. However, life led him to Minnesota at a young age where he learned the value of hard work and the importance of constant determination. Jesse worked in the Land of 10,000 Lakes for 17 years as a migrant worker to help his family make ends meet.

After completing his high school education, Jesse enrolled in the University of Texas – Pan American and graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies. After graduation, Jesse put his education to work at La Joya ISD where he taught until 1997.

The Will to Do More


Jesse took the injustices and hardships he witnessed as an underprivileged child in Minnesota to heart and never forgot them. These experiences sparked the will to do more and he subsequently pursued a doctor of jurisprudence degree. His desire to learn the origins of English common law led him to Europe, where he took the opportunity to study at the University of Innsbruck in Austria and Oxford University in Oxford, England.

Jesse’s hard work paid off when he began to intern under Federal Judge Prado in San Antonio during his second year in law school. In 2000, Jesse earned his Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s School of Law.

Providing Relentless Representation


After completing his studies, Jesse returned to the Rio Grande Valley to make McAllen the home of the J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys.

At MSU, he was accepted to be part of a small group of students to work at the Indigenous Law & Policy Center, one of only a few programs like it in the country. That program focused on strengthening tribal sovereignty for members; while engaged in that work, he realized he wanted to represent individuals in need.
