Since 1997, Mr. Young has represented plaintiffs involved in serious personal injury cases. Mr. Young has a strong background in litigation and appeals. In 2005, Mr. Young successfully argued a significant premises liability case on behalf of a seriously injured plaintiff before the California Supreme Court, Delgado v. Trax Bar & Grill (2005) 36 Cal.4th 224, which established that California merchants have a special relationship-based duty of care to protect their customers from the wrongful acts of other customers. Mr. Young also won an appeal in another premises liability case, Mata v. Mata (2003) 105 Cal.App.4th 1121, which involved an innocent bystander who was shot by an assailant in a bar due to negligent security.Because of his extensive experience in the field of premises liability, Thomson Reuters, the premier legal publisher in the U.S., asked Mr. Young to author an article for its Causes of Action series. The article is entitled "Cause of Action Against Tavern Owners, Restaurants, And Similar Businesses For Injuries Caused To Patrons By The Criminal Acts Of Others," which can be found at 26 Causes of Action 2d 1 (2004, updated Oct. 2014). The article contains a nationwide, state-by-state summary of the law of third-party premises liability and has been cited by attorneys around the country as a one-of-a-kind, go-to resource.Mr. Young is also an instructor at the Center for Advanced Legal Studies, headquartered in Houston, Texas, where he teaches courses in legal research and legal technology to students seeking a paralegal degree. He has also taught appellate advocacy at Golden Gate University School of Law and pre-trial civil procedure at John F. Kennedy School of Law. From time to time, Mr. Young also blogs about law and technology issues at his blog The Cyber-Esq, which can be found at Young is actively seeking new clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries due to the negligence of others.

Legal Answers
  • Q. I have filed a civil case for personal injury on my own. But I’m not sure about serving the other party and the summons?
    A: I concur with the others who answered your question, but I would also add that you should check with your local bar association. Many county bar associations operate lawyer referral services that can pair you up with an attorney who may be willing to take on your case, or perhaps, even assist you behind the scenes for a lesser fee. No one should attempt to represent themselves in any type of civil litigation. There are many pitfalls for the unwary. And, in all likelihood, you will be dealing with a defense attorney(s) who will do whatever they can to take advantage of the situation. Find someone to help you.
