  • Credentials

Prior to working as an attorney with our firm, Mr. Dostart joined Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora as a law clerk for four years while attending law school at night. Mr. Dostart is passionate about helping injury victims and has recovered over $50 million in settlements for his deserving clients.

He has been selected for inclusion as a Rising Star by Northern California Super Lawyers®. Mr. Dostart has also been selected by his peers as one of the top attorneys in Sacramento.

Mr. Dostart's list of successful verdicts/settlements is long, but a few examples include:

Mr. Dostart co-tried Hackett v. Silva Trucking, et al. wherein the jury returned a verdict of $34,921,215.33 (an additional $4,664,330.48 in pre-judgment interest and expert costs were subsequently added to the verdict). This was the largest personal injury verdict in the State of California in 2013 and remains the largest personal injury verdict in Sacramento County.

With Mr. Buccola and Florida co-counsel, Mr. Dostart prosecuted the tragic death of a 21-year-old woman who fell during a parasailing incident while honeymooning with her husband. After multiple years of litigation across several states, the matter resolved just before trial, with a major hotel chain and multiple parasailing parts manufacturers contributing to a confidential settlement.

In another case involving a crane collapse and near-amputation arm injury, Mr. Dostart took over 30 depositions while co-prosecuting the case with Mr. Buccola and Mr. Greenblatt. After never receiving a single offer from the crane company, the case resolved on the first day of trial with the defendant crane company paying $3,400,000.

Mr. Dostart represented a Wisconsin family in a wrongful death claim that arose out of a rear-end collision involving a commercial semi-truck. After months of litigation, the matter resolved short of trial for $5,750,000.

In another case in which a young woman was rear-ended by a commercial vehicle, the defense only offered $350,000. After taking the case to trial, the woman received a $2,900,000 verdict, including more than $1 million for past and future medical care and an additional $1.9 million for past and future pain and suffering.

Mr. Dostart grew up in the Sierra Foothills. When not advocating for his clients, he can be found spending time with his wife, Raina (the two met and started dating as teenagers), and their two precocious daughters, Mia and Gabriella. Mr. Dostart also enjoys Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
