Claire Dietrich's associate practice focuses on national product liability litigation for various corporate clients, including some of the nation's largest automotive manufacturers. Whether dealing with complex product defect cases, premises liability, warranty matters or large scale discovery projects, Claire is entrusted with every aspect of a case from filing to trial and resolution.

Since beginning her career with the firm as a summer law clerk, Claire has been immersed in automotive product liability litigation throughout California and beyond. She has defended the design and manufacture of motor vehicles in alleged wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases relating to rollover, airbag, unintended acceleration and fire.
