SFTLA is Proud to Present our Member of the Month


Renata Bogomolnaya

Renata Bogomolnaya joined The Law Office of Mark J. Zanobini in 2013. She represents people in all types of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases including those caused by vehicular accidents, product liability, dangerous premises or medical/dental negligence.  In the past, Renata worked on civil and criminal law issues, focusing on consumer protection and business compliance, and criminal appellate law in both private practice and state settings. She is passionate about each and every case, both big and small, and always seeks to leave no stone unturned to reach the best possible outcome for her clients.

Renata received her B.A. from UC Berkeley in Psychology and Legal Studies, and her J.D. from Golden Gate University. While in law school, she worked on criminal justice projects and was published in the California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice.  Renata is a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, and San Mateo County Trial Lawyers Association.

Despite her daughter’s entreaties to stop helping people and pick her up from school like other parents do, she impresses on her children the importance of helping others who are in need.  In what remains of her free time, she enjoys challenging hikes, skiing, biking and playing chess with her husband and their three kids.
