Bicycle Law

We are cyclists. We are attorneys. We are Bicycle Law. And we are deeply committed to obtaining justice for injured cyclists. Founded in 2000 by Olympian, national champion, and former pro racer Bob Mionske, Bicycle Law is the first bicycle law practice ever to exclusively represent cyclists. We get cycling. We get cyclists. We get you. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle crash, Bicycle Law is here to help you.

Every cyclist needs bicycle law

We ride. We know the joy of traveling off the beaten path, of urban exploration, of commutes we treasure instead of dread. We’ve felt wind in our face and wiped road grit from our eyes. But we’ve also felt the brush of the rear view mirror from the driver – inattentively or intentionally – blasting by too close.

We’ve gone down. We know what it feels like when bones crunch, when surgeons need plates and screws to put us back together. The tediously slow healing process when all we want is to spin the pedals, ride our normal commute, and explore again.

We’ve gotten up. Up to ride, to fight for cycling rights, and to help others in need.

We are Bicycle Law. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle crash, let us help you.

Bret PoolAdvertising Executive - Aliso Viejo, CA

I was hit while riding my bike. My leg will never be the same and I needed fair compensation. My first attorney told me to expect no more than $4,000. Thanks to BicycleLaw, I settled the case for $100,000.

Store ManagerMadison, WI

While on a training ride, I was hit by a motorist. I hired Bob Mionske at Bicyclaw as my attorney because, as a former bike racer, he understood that I should be compensated for losing part of my season.

Chris McGovernProfessional Cyclist - Team Jelly Belly - Salt Lake City, UT

The driver who ran me over didn’t think it was his fault, the lawyers at BicycleLaw secured the policy limit from his insurance company.

Pat CarrellMaster Racer - Windsor, CA

When I was injured because of a poor design I wanted someone that knew the cycling industry from the inside out and who would be tough as nails.
