After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1988, Trial lawyer Oliver Shami attended University of San Diego School of Law (“USD”) where he pursued a dual degree in law and business. In 1991, Mr. Shami graduated, passed the bar, and ultimately became licensed in two states: California and Arizona.

Since 1992, Mr. Shami has represented hundreds of clients with catastrophic injuries. In order to better represent injured victims, Mr. Shami dedicated nearly 5 years of his career to working on the insurance defense side representing clients such as Mercury Insurance, State Farm, Hilton Hotels, and Chrysler Automotive. During his years as a defense attorney, Mr. Shami acquired the tools necessary to understand the methods by which insurance companies and large corporate defendants evaluate and defend cases. This experience provided Mr. Shami with invaluable exposure to the defense side of civil matters, allowing Mr. Shami an insight that many “plaintiff-only” attorneys often lack in representing clients in personal injury matters.

Mr. Shami has been successful in litigation against Ford Motor Company and General Motors in product defect cases as well as Bridgestone/Firestone in defective tire lawsuits.  Mr. Shami also has considerable experience in commercial trucking collisions. In 2005, Mr. Shami was among the first attorneys in California to pierce Native American tribal sovereign immunity in the landmark case ofBluehawk v. Campo Band of Mission Indians.  Mr. Shami successfully argued the case to the California Court of Appeals and successfully briefed the case before the California Supreme Court.

Mr. Shami is passionate about the law and helping injured people. His passion extends far beyond the courtroom. In 2001, Mr. Shami earned his professional motorcycle racing license with the AMA (American Motorcycle Association). In 2002, Mr. Shami became a motorcycle instructor and developed a widely recognized motorcycle training method used to coach motorcyclists into safer riders. As a riding instructor, Mr. Shami has trained many new motorcycle riders into safer and better riders. He also has worked with many injured riders, helping them overcome their disabilities and achieve just results when they were injured due to the carelessness of others.

Mr. Shami is happily married and the proud father of a seven year old daughter. He is an avid downhill skier, water skier, and can be found most weekends riding or racing motocross.
