Macaluso & Associates, APC is a national law firm based in downtown San Diego, Ca. Our firm also maintains an office at the Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, Ca. where the firm maintains its corporate aircraft. Our firm owns and operates a Pilatus PC-12, which enables us to travel anywhere within the United States in seven hours. We also own and operate a Bell Jet Ranger 20-6 Helicopter, which is utilized for accident investigation, accident reconstruction, aerial photography and aerial videography.
While we manage our cases from the main office, the investigation and information gathering takes place in the locale giving rise to each individual case. The advantages that we have as a national law firm include exposure to the all areas of the specific industries we practice law in, such as aviation, products liability and common carrier negligence, and the lawyers who defend them.
The cases are litigated in the most favorable jurisdiction for each case, which may be State or Federal Court. Macaluso & Associates, APC employs the top experts to produce the best results for our clients.
In addition to the notable cases listed on this website where a favorable verdict or settlement has been reached, Macaluso & Associates, APC is currently handling cases involving serious injury, death and property damage.
