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.

In May1989, Leo H. Schuering, Jr, along with several other successful colleagues, formed a law firm that was to become, Schuering Zimmerman & Doyle,. The founders wanted to apply their knowledge and accomplishments to practice in a small firm and focus on medical malpractice defense and general civil defense. They also wanted to concentrate their skills on a dynamic trial practice. Those lawyers still practice together and over the years others have joined them, and the firm has grown to be one of the pre-eminent trial firms in Northern California.
