Attorney Stephen Tucci

The San Diego Child Injury Law Center, serves the needs of

  • seriously injured and abused children,
  • the parents of deceased children, and
  • children who have lost one or both parents,

due to the careless and reckless behavior of individuals and corporate interests.  Reflecting upon those cases which had brought him tremendous personal and professional satisfaction, and drawing on his own personal experiences and intensely-held beliefs acquired during his own youth, Stephen Tucci founded the San Diego Child Injury Law Center to serve the unique and unmet legal needs of society’s most vulnerable members.


Mr. Tucci has practiced civil litigation and trial work for over 20 years, beginning his career with what was San Diego’s largest law firm at the time.  He is a member of both the California Bar and the New York Bar, and has practiced before numerous federal courts and state administrative agencies around the country.  He has been appointed to sit as a San Diego County Superior Court judge on a temporary basis, during which time he has presided over more than 1,500 cases.  In addition to his work over the past 20 years with families of injured, abused and deceased children, his volunteer work with numerous San Diego families in need of assistance in the aftermath of the devastating wildfires which ravaged San Diego County provided tremendous personal and professional satisfaction, and earned him special recognition from the United States Congress, the California Senate, the California Assembly, and the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.


Mr. Tucci graduated with honors from Cornell University (where he was the community service chairman and treasurer of his fraternity) and with honors from San Diego’s California Western School of Law (where he was an editor for the law review and honored for his coursework in advocacy).  An active member of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and a respected source in the field of child injury litigation and practice, his writings assist other attorneys in their legal practices.


Stephen Tucci is married and the father of two.  He has coached, sponsored, counseled and volunteered for numerous youth arts and athletics organizations throughout San Diego.  Mr. Tucci is also a dedicated amateur woodworker who volunteers his time for the production and distribution of wooden furniture and toys to local non-profit organizations and charities serving children.
