Marta Alcumbrac brings the same creativity and determination to the practice of law that she used as a principal founder of the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts, a public school started when Marta realized that parents in her community wanted another educational option for their children. Among her skills is her persistence in quickly obtaining and accurately analyzing the relevant facts, allowing the firm and the client to establish a litigation plan for bringing the case to conclusion. If there is a potential that the case will need to be tried, Marta's experience as a second chair in several trials enables her to know what will be needed for an effective trial presentation. Because of her previous experience at Bonne Bridges, Muller, O'Keefe & Nichols, where her practice focused on the defense of medical malpractice cases, the firm often calls on Marta's expertise in medical issues when the causation of a medical problem is a central issue in the case. She has regularly handled toxic exposure cases, bad faith cases, and legal malpractice actions arising from medical malpractice cases.
