Health Club Clients
We represent all entities covered by the Health Studio Services Act.

Health Club Litigation
Our attorneys have been involved in securing the publication of some of the leading California appellate decisions related to health and recreational facilities. We have developed issues and defenses such as recreational use immunity, assumption of risk, exculpatory agreements, trivial defects, and open and obvious conditions.
Our litigators benefit from the advice of our appellate lawyers, who often work in partnership with our trial attorneys when it appears that a matter might proceed on appeal. Our appellate lawyers have a strong background in general civil litigation. Consequently, they are able to help draft motions for summary judgment with an eye on the appellate ramifications before the matter is even heard by the trial court. The depth and range of our experience increases efficiency in our pretrial and trial work. Our appellate attorneys are always available to assist our trial counsel, whether before, during or after trial. If an appeal becomes necessary, our appellate attorneys provide clients with skilled representation. Our success on appeal has won our firm an enviable reputation.
