WELCOME TO THE CLAYPOOL LAW FIRM
Fighting for Victims of Injustice Nationwide
When it comes to pursuing justice for those who have felt victimized by child sexual abuse, civil rights violations or wrongful death, Attorney Brian Claypool and the rest of our team from the Claypool Law Firm know that every moment counts.
From initial consultations to speaking with major news media outlets to bringing a case to jury trial, we don’t just give our clients a voice to share their stories, we give them a platform to let the world know they aren’t afraid to stand up for themselves.
Our clients demand justice, and we champion our clients' desires by advocating for them in an unwavering fashion. As a survivor of the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, Mr. Claypool derived inspiration from that tragedy and used it to further fuel his passion and drive to bring about social change.
He loudly and proudly fights for the rights and dignities of anyone who has faced:
- Horrible injustice
- Painful abuse
- And heartbreaking discrimination
Every case the firm accepts is managed from the beginning as if it will proceed to trial. Mr. Claypool's nationally regarded reputation as a fierce trial attorney, combined with his media presence, creates transparency in these cases that often leads to much more significant settlement offers before trial.
Many people in Pasadena and the rest of the country recognize him from his numerous commentaries on high-profile cases, as featured by newsgroups like:
- Good Morning America
- And many more
Many of these media appearances can be viewed through our YouTube channel.
To better serve our clients, we can offer the support of a Spanish-speaking attorney and legal assistant for all case types that our firm handles. Mr. Claypool has engendered a powerful relationship with the Spanish news media that sheds light on issues of justice within the Hispanic community.

Do I Have a Case?It is important to understand that not every wrongdoing will result in a civil lawsuit. Whether or not you have a case largely depends on the tangible evidence you do or do not have to use in your favor. Medical records, communication transcripts, and other official documents can help form the foundation for your lawsuit. Without such proof, though, you might not have a starting point. Many times, what you factually believe is at odds with the legal standard of proof. You should always speak with an attorney to see if you have a legally-sound case or not.
How Long Will My Case Take to Conclude?Every case is unique for many reasons, which makes knowing how long a case will take before concluding difficult. There are some averages to consider, though. Personal injury claims are usually completed in one or two years if the defendant tries to avoid liability. Cases that are more complicated can take upwards of two or three years to get to trial.
What Is LiabilityThe legal concept of liability is how much a party is responsible for something happening. It usually pertains to personal injury claims. Many states will only reward compensation based on someone’s liability for their own injuries. The more liable a person is for their accident, the fewer damages they can demand from the defendant.
Armed with unwavering tenacity, a passion for social change, extensive jury trial experience and a commitment to his godly purpose and destiny, Brian Claypool is a compassionate champion of his clients' fight for the justice they deserve.
