Practice/Organization Description

Douglas F. Welebir is the founder of Welebir Tierney & Weck. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from La Sierra College in 1962 and then attended the University of Southern California School of Law where he earned his J.D. degree in 1965.

In 1970, Mr. Welebir began specializing exclusively in plaintiffs' personal injury law and went on to form the predecessor to this firm in 1973. From 1970 to 1974, Mr. Welebir served as the first mayor of the city of Loma Linda, California.

Mr. Welebir served as lead plaintiff's counsel in the Stringfellow Acid Pits Trial case that resulted in a plaintiffs' verdict and ultimately a $110 million settlement for the 4,300 plaintiffs. He has also successfully represented many other clients throughout the State of California with individual settlements and verdicts each in excess of $1 million.

Mr. Welebir's current practice focuses on the representation of individuals and families of those seriously injured or killed by defective products or as a result of motor vehicle, railroad, big-rig truck, motorcycle, aviation or highway design accidents and animal attacks. He is "AV" rated** by Martindale-Hubbell.
