Oxnard & Ventura Personal Injury Attorneys
About Us

Firm History

The Law Offices of Schurmer & Wood was originally founded in 1968 under the name of Linder, Schurmer, Drane & Bullis. The firm specialized in all types of personal injury and wrongful death actions on behalf of individual plaintiffs’ and their families. The partnership experienced a number of changes over the years and went by the name Schurmer & Drane for many years. Walter H. Drane, Esq., one of the founding partners, passed away in 1984; however, out of recognition for his service and contribution to the firm, his name remained for three decades after his passing. With the more recent partnership addition of Lauren Wood, the firm now goes by the name of Schurmer and Wood.

In the early eighties, the firm relocated its primary offices to Santa Barbara and rapidly became entrenched in the tri-counties legal community with many successful jury verdicts and published appellate opinions. Today, the firm maintains two offices: one in the Ventura/Oxnard area and one in Santa Barbara. The firm continues to provide the same excellent legal services that it has for its 45 year plus history.

The Law Offices of Schurmer & Wood handles all cases on a contingency fee basis and advances all costs necessary to successful prosecute each case. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
