About Us

Our trial lawyers have obtained more defense verdicts for physicians and other health care professionals in the past 10 years than any other law firm in Northern California.

Schuering Zimmerman & Doyle, LLP was formed in May of 1989 when several of our lawyers grew weary of practicing in a large multispecialty law firm.  They wanted to practice in a small law firm and focus on medical malpractice defense and general civil defense.  They also wanted to focus on a trial practice, not a litigation practice.  Those lawyers still practice together and over the years others have joined them, and the firm has grown.  In this day of diminished loyalty and lawyers moving from one firm to another, and then another, it is noteworthy four of our partners joined the firm’s founding partner – Leo H. Schuering, Jr. – just after law school.

Today, our law firm is a trial law firm, not a litigation law firm.  Our lawyers are trial lawyers, not litigators.  Our trial lawyers handle cases and trials throughout Northern California and Nevada in state and federal courts and they have obtained more defense verdicts for physicians and other health care professionals in the past 10 years than any other law firm in Northern California.  Our trial lawyers have a number of achievements that speak to their significant qualifications and successes:
  • More than 300 collective years of legal experience
  • More than 400 collective trials to verdict
  • Eight trial lawyers who meet the stringent admission requirements of the American Board of Trial Advocates
  • Five trial lawyers who are AV-Rated in the Martindale-Hubbell® Legal Directory
  • Recognized by The Best Lawyers in America
  • Trial Lawyer of the Year Award by the American Board of Trial Advocates, Sacramento Valley Chapter – First time this honor given to a defense lawyer
  • Lead defense lawyer in the Redding heart cases
