“A woman who does what she says and has the results to prove it.” That’s how clients describe Vanessa Motta, a Hollywood stunt woman who became a personal injury attorney. Vanessa aggressively fights for her clients’ rights, ensuring they receive the quality of medical care they deserve.
Her slogan, “Send ‘er in,” has made a splash in the legal community. Vanessa meets individually with every client during consultation and personally argues cases in federal and state court on issues that arise during litigation. She’s always ready to take a case to trial to obtain fair value for her client’s injuries, because for her, it’s personal.
Vanessa’s daughter, Julia, survived a ruptured brain aneurysm, which required three emergency surgeries. Vanessa herself suffered a severe neck injury from a hit-and-run driver, which derailed her stunt career. “My own insurance company refused to treat me fairly,” Vanessa says, “so I realize just how difficult it can be for my clients.”
Vanessa’s success as a personal injury attorney has not gone unnoticed — she was nominated for Litigator of the Year by the American Institute of Trial Lawyers, a nomination that only .03% of attorneys ever receive. Vanessa has also been named a Top 40 under 40 for Personal Injury by the American Academy of Attorneys and the National Alliance of Women in Law.
If you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney, it would be wise to call Vanessa Motta and “send ‘er in.”
