About Personal Injury Attorney Scott Sumner

Sumner Law, founded by attorney Scott Sumner, helps injured parties throughout Northern California recover compensation for car accidents, truck collisions, dog bites and more. Scott also helps families recover monetary compensation for the loss of loved ones by filing wrongful death lawsuits.

Scott’s Background

After obtaining his law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law, Scott accepted a position with a top personal injury law firm in Northern California, where he soon gained a reputation within the legal community as a tough litigator.

He later founded Sumner Law, where he continues to fight for the rights of injured parties. As a two-time bicycle accident survivor, Scott has a personal familiarity with auto accident injuries and knows all too well the struggles his clients face every day on their road to recovery.


In his career of over 25 years, Scott has earned peer recognition in several ways, selected for inclusion as a California Super Lawyer annually since 2005; receiving an AV Preeminent peer-review rating,* the highest available, through Martindale-Hubbell; and being voted as one of the Top 100 personal injury lawyers in Northern California.
