About the Firm

Since its founding over 70 years ago, Severson & Werson has gained a reputation for providing specialized advice, legal services, and expertise to financial institution clients. The services we provide run the gamut, from litigation to regulatory matters, legislative affairs and formulating and implementing nationwide strategies for such things as defending consumer class action cases. The scope of our practice is national, and today the Firm’s clients include many of the nation’s premier banks, savings associations, commercial and consumer finance companies, mortgage companies and loan servicers, and insurance concerns.

In 2001, the Consumer Finance Report was awarded “best newsletter” by the Legal Marketing Association, Bay Area Chapter. It is edited by Joseph W. Guzzetta, with the assistance of Evelina Manukyan and Elizabeth Holt Andrews, and is published three times each year for the benefit of our clients and others with concerns requiring current information focusing on California developments in the areas of consumer finance and litigation. Joseph Guzzetta is an associate of the Firm who specializes in defending financial institution clients against single-plaintiff lawsuits and class action cases.
