Welcome! I am Travis Black and I would be delighted to become your attorney. Please view the following information of my experience and passion to advocate and protect your rights and to achieve for you a thorough, just, and rightful outcome for you.
I love this community and am proud to service its residents. As a retired police officer and insurance adjuster / insurance attorney, I have experience in all the aspects of accident investigation, insurance claim processes, and the ways they try to shift blame and minimalize claim settlements. As an attorney, I know the processes to get just, fair, and optimum results for my injured clients. In the area of DUI, I know all law enforcement procedures and practices and encourage you to visit my DUI page.
"My mission is to win for the people I represent. I have the privilege of representing individuals who are often badly hurt and need a lawyer that will not back down from a fight with a big insurance company or corporation or city. Obtaining justice for my clients is humbling, gratifying and the most purposeful work I could imagine.”
Committed to Justice
I became a lawyer in 1992, first working for several large insurance companies. After 10 years, I became frustrated and upset with the way insurance companies treated the victims of accidents or injured parties. I found that there was no such thing as reasonable compensation for the injured.
Insurance companies refuse to be held accountable for the actions of their insured. In fact, some insurance companies in California use a computer program that determines what the settlement should be. How is this fair to your injury? There is little human decision-making when it comes to compensating injured people. The insurance companies believe in only one thing: paying out as little money as possible. They don’t care and they betray most people who have been injured. They don’t care that the injuries leave people in pain for the rest of their lives and financially challenged or for the families that are left destitute by the death of their loved ones.
My passion for justice and injured parties’ rights compelled me to enter private practice, to defend and help injured victims, not to minimalize costs for the mega insurance firms. I decided that I would do what other law firms don’t do, “Give results and not excuses.”
I am not intimidated by insurance companies forcing victims into court. I fought for victims’ rights when I was a police officer and I continue to do this now. I have a vast amount of experience in traffic accident investigation, the effects of personal injury on health, personal well-being, as well as all the related rehabilitation needs and financial costs to recover from injuries. I have extensive legal experience in the process of injury claim settlement, mediation, arbitration, and court proceedings.
During my time in law enforcement, I developed the tactics that I use today when handling personal injury cases. I have served as an expert witness in accident investigation, handled traffic collisions, and investigated the scenes of accidents personally. I know what to look for and how to use it to your benefit regardless of the type of accident.Serving the Folsom Community
My law firm, Travis G. Black & Associates, represents Folsom, Sacramento, and local residents as they seek to achieve a righteous and optimum solution to their legal needs. This is what I pride myself in fulfilling for each and every client. When you hire me, you get me, not a caseworker or paralegal, as is the common practice of other legal firms. You get my 25+ years' legal experience, my experience as a policeman and insurance adjuster, and access to my professional resources in accident investigation, medical and rehabilitation consultants, actuaries, and others.
My extensive training and experience gives us the tools needed to Win Your Case. My passion is earning results, not excuses for my clients. I want them to recover to their pre-accident health and happiness with dignity and without financial strain and worry for them and their families. I fight for them to receive the medical treatment, emotional support, rehabilitation needs, and all the related financial compensation necessary for them to fully recover, where possible, or provide for their longer term needs and challenges.
While my special interest lies in personal injury and car accidents, my firm, Travis G. Black & Associates, also helps individuals with wills and estates, DUI, and other areas. I graduated from the prestigious Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming, which was started by Gerry Spence, one of the finest and most respected attorneys in America. I am not afraid to take your case to trial if a just settlement from negotiation, mediation, or arbitration cannot be achieved. At all times, I am your advocate and I know how and what to do to achieve results.
I understand accidents and incidents just occur, that they were unforeseen and you are probably unprepared for what lies ahead. I am not unprepared. I know what lies ahead and getting your rights protected at the earliest moment is always important. Hence, I am always available to you.
