A lifetime of experience has shaped Mr. Roger A. Dreyer. It has enabled him to have a unique and practical understanding of the importance of the quality of life and proven invaluable in dealing with wrongful death and catastrophic injury matters.
He is the product of a family that traveled throughout the country and Europe due to his father’s military career. His parents exposed him to a lifestyle that led him to want to make a difference and make them proud of him. They taught him the importance of life and the value of hard work.
His father had been shaped by a wartime experience of flying over 40 combat missions, being shot down, sustaining serious injuries and being a prisoner of war for nearly two years. He instilled in Mr. Dreyer an appreciation for the value of family, life and how delicate a line we all walk.
Additionally, the importance of physical health and competing as a member of a team was instilled in Mr. Dreyer and his two older brothers throughout his life by his mother and his father. Having a father who served during World War II and having parents who grew up during the Depression caused him to appreciate the tremendous importance of family and community with each new location they moved to during their travels as a military family.
When his father retired in the Sacramento region, Mr. Dreyer finally was able to set down roots in a community and has remained here throughout his career, other than to attend University of California, Davis, where he graduated with honors, and to obtain his law degree at the University of California at Hastings in San Francisco, where he understood his calling was going to be in the courtroom representing the interests of others, and in particular, fighting for those who do not have a voice.
Throughout his distinguished career, Mr. Dreyer has honed his skill in the courtroom and established himself as one of the premier trial attorneys in California. He has tried in excess of 125 civil jury trials for his clients in 14 different counties in California.
He has represented hundreds of families and individuals who have suffered the worst possible losses; that is, the loss of a family member or a catastrophic injury that impacted every aspect of that person’s quality of life. He has obtained multimillion dollar jury verdicts in wrongful death actions, catastrophic brain and spinal injury cases.
