uring the past 40 years, James P. Frantz and the attorneys at Frantz Law Group have always shared a common goal: to win at trial or through favorable settlements. Moreover, during all litigation, the philosophy of the firm is (and always has been) to exercise the greatest degree of civility, integrity, and decorum when interacting with colleagues and opposing counsel. The last several years have been banner years for the firm, its clients, and the community. Frantz Law Group played its part in achieving historic and landmark settlements including an $800 million set t l em en t a g ain s t M G M R ESO RTS INTERNATIONAL, on behalf of victims of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting at Mandalay Bay (Frantz Law Group represents 201 victims) and a $13.5 billion settlement against Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) on behalf of thousands of victims harmed in the 2017/2018 Northern California wildfires.1 Frantz Law Group has also obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements to compensate its clients for serious injury and death arising from commercial trucking, automobile, motorcycle, construction-site, and aviation cases during the past decade.* Frantz Law Group is a multi-faceted personal injury law firm, in which the attorneys and support personnel assigned to each case are thoroughly trained to assist

and develop sound legal strategy in order to discover and secure critical evidence necessary to prevail. “We’re keenly aware that proving liability can be an uphill climb,” says Frantz, whose legal career includes seven, eight, nine, and ten-figure jury verdicts and settlements for a diverse range of clients. “We are successful because we meticulously prepare our cases and carefully analyze every conceivable risk. Our 35-member team of law yer s an d sup p or t s t af f exemplifies the highest standards of legal advocacy, civility, and integrity. After conducting extensive discovery in each case, Frantz Law Group assembles mock trials in certain cases. In those cases, a mock jury is empaneled, and evidence is presented from the plaintiff and defense perspectives. After the mock trial is concluded, the mock jury is surveyed about their impressions of the key evidence presented, answers questions from both sides, and renders a verdict. The mock jury verdict and the research derived from deliberations (that are videotaped) enables the firm to aggressively play offense, not defense, when prosecuting its cases. The end result is that Frantz Law Group Attorneys achieve a much more thorough understanding of the particular nuances and issues present in each case prior to the actual trial, thereby gaining the winning edge. 2

1 Frantz Law Group represents over 4,200 of the approximately 45,000 victims. * Results in other matters do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction of the outcome of your legal matter. Results are dependent on facts of each case, and the results may vary based on different facts. **As pro hac vice counsel when necessary.

2 Frantz Law Group Trial Attorney Jodi Frantz (through her Jury Consulting Firm, Legal Sense, Inc.) single-handedly crafted and implemented a comprehensive mock jury protocol for Frantz Law Group (clients), including systematically summarizing and categorizing the jury research derived from the mock trials. Additionally, she utilizes that mock jury data in conducting the actual voir dire (jury selection). That mock jury research has been highly beneficial in determining appropriate trial strategy and trial themes required to prevail in the case.

The firm has a stellar track record born of hard work and dedication that has earned it a spot as one of the top plaintiffs’ firms in the U.S. To date, the firm has won more than half a billion dollars in jury verdicts and settlements. This total includes an impressive set of victories, many of which are historic. Frant z Law Group obtained a $223 million jury verdict* for a single plaintiff (top pre-trial offer was $100,000). In a wrongful-death case involving the tragic death of four United States Marines, the jury rendered a $55.5 million verdict* for the families of the decedents. 3 This jury verdict is reportedly the largest w ro n g f u l - d e a t h ju r y ve rd ic t i n t h e United States against a negligent public utilit y (San Diego Gas and Electric). The public utility adamantly refused to attend any mediation or settlement conference pre-trial. Frantz Law Group has also successfully handled hundreds of commercial trucking wrongful-death and catastrophic-injury cases, achieving seven - and eightfigure awards for its clients. These cases include drivers who operate trucks when they are not medically certified to do so or are not properly trained, trucks that are defective or not properly maintained, and drivers who make operational errors that cause fatal or catastrophic injuries.

The firm represents children who have lost their parents, parents who have lost their children, and spouses who have lost their husband or wife in these tragedies.4 “By design we litigate cases across a broad spectrum,” Frantz said. “There’s not a whole lot that we can’t take on.” Indeed, it runs the gamut from injuries a n d d e a t h s c a u s e d by a m u s e m e n t park rides, and commercial trucking accidents, to products and premises liabili t y, e - cig aret te li t ig at io n , an d complex f ire and natural gas public utility litigation. Additionall y, Frant z Law G roup is nationally recognized for its specialized experience representing vic tims of w i l d f i r e s a n d g a s l e a k ex p l o s i o n s caused by negligent public utilities. The firm currently represents nearly 6,000 wildfire victims against PG&E, Southern California Edison and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power related to the North Bay Fires and the Thomas Fire/Mudslides of 2017, the Camp Fire and Woolsey Fire of 2018, as well as the Getty, Kincade, and Saddle Ridge Fires of 2019. Additionally, the f irm represents more than 8,000 victims of the Porter Ranch (Aliso Canyon) gas explosion litigation against Southern California Gas/Sempra Energy. 5

With this breadth and depth of experience, it comes as no surprise to learn that James P. Frantz and his firm have repeatedly been honored and recognized by various peer-to - peer organizations and publications, including being named Tier One U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” in San Diego for Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs, Top 100 Jury Verdicts in the Nation and the Daily Transcript, Top 10 Lawyers. 6 But James Frantz will be the first to say that accolades and recognition are not what drives the firm: “It’s knowing that the firm’s work is making a tangible dif ference in the li ves of ever yday people who seek legal assistance under t h e m os t ex t re m e, ‘gu t- w re n chi n g’ circumstances. I am so ver y proud of our entire staf f and attorneys. They are amazing as demonstrated by their selfless dedication assisting the firm’s clients that are facing very unfortunate circumstances.” “ We approach ever y case with e x p e r i e n c e , s k i l l , i n t e g r i t y, a n d compassion, which is vital to obtain the best results we possibly can. We’re methodical in our case preparation and leave no stone unturned in our commitment to win,” Frantz says. “That’s what brings us to work every day.”

3 For this case, Jodi Frantz organized and supervised two separate mock jury trials (with two 12 person panels for each mock trial) to assess the plaintiffs’ case specific strengths and weaknesses. Moreover, she compiled comprehensive juror questionnaires that were provided to the subject trial jury panel (in advance of the actual trial commencing). Thereafter, after receiving the jury panel’s responses, she tabulated and analyzed all of the questionnaires to make determinations of the acceptability (or not) of each prospective juror. She then conducted the actual voir dire (with co-counsel) to exclude or include certain jurors based upon the mock jury research findings (mock jury verdict and questionnaire data). After a four-week jury trial, the jury rendered an historic verdict of $15.5 million compensatory and $40 million punitive against San Diego Gas & Electric. * The verdict was appealed and the case was settled for a reduced confidential amount.

4 Frantz Law Group Trial Attorneys James Frantz, Philip Aman, William Harris, George Stiefel and William Shinoff lead the firm’s commercial trucking litigation division. The Firm is extremely fortunate to have these lawyers that are a vital part of this firm. They possess stellar legal skills which are particularly relevant in handling, commercial transportation and tractor trailer crashes. 5 Frantz Law Group trial attorney Regina Bagdasarian is brilliantly leading and supervising the entire fire and gas public utility litigation (along with Attorneys James P. Frantz and George Stiefel). Kristina Herbert, William Harris, and William Shinoff are providing excellent support to the fire litigation.

6 James Frantz is a Fellow and Associate of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates, is AV® Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® and is a Master in the William B. Enright Chapter of The American Inns of Court. He has also been appointed Special Master by the State Bar of California for more than 30 years.

RECOGNIZED FOR LAND USE AND ZONING LAW SINCE 2010

NO PLACE LIKE HOME

THE HOUSING CRISIS ACROSS THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN EXACERBATED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, CALIFORNIA BEING NO EXCEPTION. HOWEVER, STATE LAWS HAVE RECENTLY BEEN PASSED TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM.

What is your opinion on the new legislation regarding Section 8 vouchers? While the motivating policy behind this legislative action is the positive impulse to expand housing opportunities, in practice, this new law brings with it a variety of unexamined consequences. An owner’s refusal to lease to tenants using Section 8 housing vouchers is now a prohibited form of discrimination per Gov’t Code Section 12955(a). . . It is one thing, if a landlord voluntarily accepts Section 8 vouchers, to require compliance with the strict regulatory mandates and paperwork. On the other hand, it seems unfair to force involuntary compliance with voluminous regulatory requirements and financial disclosures upon landlords. Under the California Constitution, there is a legally protected privacy interest. Arguably requiring involuntary disclosure of books, imposition of an audit rights, and forcing public disclosure of otherwise private business matters is a potential invasion of that protected privacy.

ITH MILLIONS OF PEOPLE out of work and facing financial hardship from the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, concerns over access to affordable housing are at an all-time high. Even before the pandemic hit, California legislators have been trying to mitigate the lack of affordable housing through enacting new policy. In October, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Senate Bill No. 329 which prohibits landlords from rejecting tenants using Section 8 housing vouchers. Section 8, otherwise known as the Housing Choice Voucher Program, helps low-income residents better afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing— not just units in subsidized-housing projects, but also including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments. The vouchers are administered by Public Housing Agencies, however, the current waitlist for Section 8 assistance in California is approximately five years. We talked to two Best Lawyersrecognized attorneys to discuss the Section 8 assistance along with the impact of COVID-19 on housing in California. 6 |

RECOGNIZED FOR REAL ESTATE LAW SINCE 2020

What is your opinion on the current state of housing access in Southern California? Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic California was suffering from twin crises of homelessness and insufficient affordable housing. For extremely low-income families in Los Angeles (those whose incomes are not more than 30 percent of the area median income) there are only seven units affordable and available for every 100 of such families. For very low-income families, with incomes between 30 and 50 percent of the area median, things are only slightly better, with 17 units affordable and available for every 100 of such families. Other recent pre-COVID-19 studies reported that six in 10 families in Los Angeles County were cost-burdened, paying more than 30 percent of their incomes for housing. Sixty percent of extremely and very low-income families are severely costburdened, paying more than 50 percent of other incomes for housing. Can you speak more on the Tenant Protection Act of 2019 and how it will address the housing crisis? In an attempt to address this housing crisis, the “Tenant Protection Act of 2019”—which became effective January 1, 2020—conditions the right of a residential

How has housing changed (including rent prices and such) since the pandemic started? In the midst of this housing crisis the pandemic hit, erasing jobs at a rate not seen since the Great Depression. As of August 2020, unemployment in Los Angeles County stood at 20.3 percent, an increase of 16.3 percent over the prior year’s figures. In a study issued jointly by the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge and the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate on Aug. 27, 2020, it was reported that as of July 2020, over 5 million homeowners, or 8 percent of all homeowners, were delinquent in their mortgages between March and July 2020. In July 2020 approximately 42 percent of homeowners suffering losses of earnings were delinquent in their mortgages. The study concludes that these delinquency rates portend a looming foreclosure crisis. What has California done in terms of the housing crisis since the pandemic started? Recognizing that lockdown orders would severely impact already burdened renters and households with mortgage debt, in March 2019 California governor Gavin Newsom authorized local governments to enact measures to halt evictions of renters and foreclosure of homeowners adversely impacted by the pandemic. Many counties and municipalities enacted eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, allowing tenants— and in some cases homeowners—to defer rent and mortgage payments, and preventing imposition of late charges or collection fees for a period after the state emergency expires, currently scheduled for September 30, 2020. Any such deferred rent or mortgage payments would be required to be repaid at various schedules depending upon the ordinances. Will the legislation passed help the housing crisis long-term? The legislation [passed] will likely delay the already heavy cost burdens on renters and homeowners and delay worsening the crisis of homelessness. However, they are temporary fixes. Lost jobs and evaporating income will increase the pain of those already suffering, many of whom will be further burdened with added consumer debt and no prospects for repayment. Landlords with mortgages facing loss of rents are not getting meaningful relief from their lenders and will face a reckoning for repayment of mortgage arrearages without a source of funds.

landlord to terminate tenancies solely upon the basis of “just cause” and limits annual rent increases. Landlords are prohibited from increasing the gross rental rate of a tenancy more than 5 percent plus the percentage change in the cost of living, or 10 percent, whichever is lower. There has been significant research questioning the efficacy of rent-control laws in maintaining affordable housing. Indeed, some studies have concluded that such laws adversely impact the supply of affordable rental housing in favor of more expensive housing.

oug Easton and the trial lawyers of Easton & Easton continued building the longstanding legacy of the firm and family name in 2020. Sons Brian, Matt, and Travis Easton have been Doug’s partners in the firm for years. They have collectively secured more than $100 million for their clients in the past five years fighting for plaintiffs in various high-stakes and precedent-setting cases. Their record stems from successfully resolving matters in the areas of catastrophic injury, wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, and motor vehicle accidents. “Our clients need the strongest trial advocates and we are proud to have that reputation,” said Doug Easton, a 50-year veteran of the profession. “The bonds we develop with clients—many of whom come to us by referral—continually fuel us as a family of litigators.” A history of favorable outcomes and unwavering commitment to client service has earned the firm a Tier 1 ranking in Orange County for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” each of the past three years. And as a family of attorneys, the Eastons have developed a pedigree of success, which has led to the firm’s selection by the LA Times Reader’s Choice Poll as Orange County’s “Best Personal Injury Law Firm” annually since 2018. Even amid the coronavirus pandemic, Easton & Easton continued fighting on behalf of the injured and their families. The firm currently represents a general laborer severely injured in a construction accident. “Our client nearly lost his arm while being ordered to service a construction site elevator without receiving proper training or safety protocols,” Brian Easton said, adding that as a result, the client now suffers from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). “Our investigation

and litigation efforts discovered that the general contractor violated applicable safety codes in failing to hire licensed elevator-service technicians all to cut corners and save money, and now our client is burdened with a lifetime of constant, debilitating pain.” In 2019, Easton & Easton achieved a remarkable $20 million settlement in a highly disputed premises liability matter for a client severely injured on the defendants’ premises by a third party. “We litigated this case for three years, ultimately showing that the defendants’ negligence was the primary cause of our client’s catastrophic injuries, despite the conduct of the third party” Matt Easton said. “The defendants had vowed to spend millions in court fighting the case, but just prior to trial they realized the fight was futile and we settled for $20 million.” Beyond traditional litigation and negotiations, Easton & Easton proved resilient in 2020 by having their remote capabilities already in place when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared a national emergency. Their seamless transition to video-conference hearings and partial-remote work enabled them to remain effective and visible during a time when other firms struggled. Demonstrating their abilities to also adapt to change, the firm has begun representing clients in mass-tort litigations, marking a new milestone in the firm’s impressive legacy and allowing this family of dedicated litigators to help even more injury victims. “ We have always been versatile and able to overcome new challenges,” Travis Easton said. “We were prepared for the disruption, safely kept our office open as a headquarters, and proudly remain available to clients—in-person and remotely.”

NT HON Y INSOGNA, Jones Day’s IP Practice Leader and San Diego’s 2021 “Law yer of the Year” in Litigation - Intellectual Property, is a pharmaceutical and biotechnology patent attorney who has nearly 30 years of experience. He has represented some of the world’s most successful pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to enforce and defend patents in complex highstakes matters, drive cutting-edge patent portfolio strategies, and conduct multifaceted due diligence involving clinical candidates and FDA-approved products. “I am quite proud to be able to say that I have had the privilege to devise patent strategies that have protected numerous multimillion and several multibillion-dollar drugs and have been successfully tested in litigation as well as M&A transactions,” he said. Many rely on pharmaceutical products to ease their daily life. With the importance of these products, it’s no wonder why Insogna finds this area of law rewarding. “My practice focuses on life-sciences companies whose pharmaceutical

products and/or therapies improve our health and, in many cases, save lives,” Insogna explained. “To be a part of that is incredibly fulfilling. To assist the companies in making their investment and furthering their research and development of these life-saving medicines is key to what drives my commitment to this work. But with many other jobs, the e v e r- c h a n g i n g t e c h n o l o g i c a l advancements can make it difficult. “Perhaps the most challenging part of my field of law is to keep on top of, if not ahead of, others with respect to new cutting-edge technologies that are changing the global economy and the way we live,” he said. “Applying and adapting to the different laws around the world in an ever-evolving, global, fast-paced evolution of technology and patent landscapes is interesting to say the least.” With his years of experience, there are three qualities that Insogna believes makes a great attorney in Litigation – Intellectual Property: team work, civility in litigation, and perseverance. “Each is critical,” he said. “You simply can never give up.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

THE WINNING EDGE In its 40th year, Frantz Law Group finalized history-making settlements for clients in California and nationally by Justin Smulison

FOR

MORE THAN 40 Y EARS, Frantz Law Group has been one of t he premier plaintiffs’ law firms in the United States bringing compassion, experience, skill and integrity to the fight for justice on behalf of those who have been severely injured or died through the negligence of others. Frantz Law Group has litigated, tried to jury verdict, or settled nearly every imaginable type of personal injury claim. The legendary firm and its attorneys have never lost sight of what drew them to the practice of law in the first place. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Through careers spent righting the wrongs of carmakers, trucking companies, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical compa n ies, publ ic uti l ities, a nd more, t he attorneys at Frantz Law Group continue their fight to level the playing field for everyday people who face a significant tragedy in their lives caused by the recklessness and negligence of others. The core of the firm’s philosophy centers around broader accountability and changing the bad behavior of individuals and institutions in order to limit the reoccurrence of catastrophic events. For example, since 2017, the firm has been representing thousands of plaintiffs in lawsuits against (PG&E) after the utility’s equipment caused 21 major fire disasters in northern California, killing 45 people and destroying thousands of homes and businesses. Moreover, PG&E’s absolute reckless failure to inspect and maintain its electrical equipment led to the almost complete annihilation of the town of Paradise in 2018, killing 85 adults and children and severely injuring scores of others. More than 18,000 homes and businesses were destroyed.1 While working hard to make sure that the wildfire victims are well compensated, Frantz Law Group (along with California Governor Gavin Newsom and other involved plaintiffs’ counsel), supported legislative change to enhance PG&E’s overall safety practices. The final result is a magnificent victory for California Residents. State Assembly Bill 1054, establishes a $20 billion fund to provide compensation for future fire victims including restitution for destruction of homes and businesses. The Assembly Bill also requires enhanced safety protocols to be implemented by all California public utilities. Institutional change at PG&E is especially warranted due to the serious (civil and criminal allegations) wherein PG&E knew that its electrical tower (near the City of Paradise) was dangerously

defective and had been in disrepair for almost ten years. But each year PG&E evaluated the risk and declined to repair so as to enhance its profits! Frantz Law Group also represents more than 1,000 victims of the 2017 Southern California Thomas fire/Montecito mudslides and 2018 Woolsey fire. Southern California Edison’s alleged negligence caused the destruction of more than 3,000 homes and businesses and killed 26 adults and children.2 In other historic litigation concerning the dangerous dietary supplement Ephedra, the work of Frantz Law Group was a significant factor with respect to the United States Food and Drug Administration’s final decision to permanently ban the sale of ephedra-based dietary supplements. Ephedra was linked to heart attacks and strokes across the country. In fact, Frantz Law Group (and co-counsel) won an $18.5 million verdict in an ephedra-related trial,3 proving that ephedra based products were dangerous to humans and the claims of safety were false and misleading. Mr. Frantz was asked to testify, before Congress, about his ephedra-related verdict. He provided congressional testimony concerning factual findings (by the Court) that ephedrine alkaloids were unsafe and responsible for causing numerous serious injuries and deaths in the U.S. Five months after the congressional testimony of Mr. Frantz (and other prominent medical experts), ephedrine alkaloids were permanently banned across the nation.

Vaping Epidemic The team of attorneys and dedicated staff at Frantz Law Group are now battling to achieve a similar outcome (monetary damages and injunctive relief) against JUUL Labs, Inc. (JUUL) and related e-cigarette manufacturers and distributors. JUUL’s internal documents reportedly evidence that it (and others) are using the insidious and deceptive marketing strategies of Big Tobacco to promote their highly addictive vaping products to children, as young as 8 years of age.4 In an effort to “hook” children and youth into using their product, it is reported that JUUL maximized the nicotine concentration in each nicotine pod so each pod contains the equivalent of one pack of cigarettes (which explains the high addiction rate).

1 Frantz Law Group represents the families of 30 loved ones that died in the Northern California Wildfires of 2017-2018. 2 Frantz Law Group also represents the families of 4 loved ones that perished in the 2017 Thomas/mudslides. 3 Appealed and settled confidentially for a reduced amount. 4 In fact, not surprisingly (Big Tobacco) Phillip Morris’ former CEO is now managing JUUL Labs, Inc. James P. Frantz, Esq. approves the content of this advertisement.

It is further reported that students and other users have been (and continue to be) induced to vape these products with JUUL’s introduction of enticing flavors such as crème brûlée, mint, mango, and fruit medley. Now, more than one-million high school students report vaping daily and the numbers are increasing! According to a Harvard professor of pediatrics, “nicotine addiction can take hold in only a few days, especially in the developing adolescent brain that is particularly vulnerable to addiction to nicotine.” Recent studies have shown that even brief exposure to low doses of nicotine can produce lasting behavioral changes in the adolescent brain as well as cause significant lung disease and cognitive impairment.5 JUUL purportedly downplayed the dangers of nicotine and worked to position its brand that vaping is “cool and safe” thereby luring youth into a false sense of security. Initial packaging did not even disclose the presence of any nicotine in the product! The Firm currently has been retained by more than 1,300 schools nationwide to prosecute claims in California Federal and State Court to assist the school districts in their ongoing struggles to address the significant disruption of their educational programs (as a result of nicotine vaping both inside the classroom and on campus). In addition, Frantz Law Group is seeking reasonable compensation for the schools to enable the districts to recover the significant vaping (monitoring) costs necessary to restrict vaping, as well as get funding for the substantial costs to employ behavioral and health experts (to counsel students). 6 Moreover, nicotine addiction is of paramount concern to Frantz Law Group (and its school district clients). Collectively, the districts and this firm ultimately seek to drastically reduce the escalation of student vaping, on and off campus, thereby potentially mitigating these serious health effects. Finally, the firm on behalf of all of its JUUL clients, seeks injunctive relief to ban JUUL nicotine vaping in its entirety. Ultimately, “there is a lot at stake for our clients in the various types of litigation we are prosecuting (including JUUL),” James Frantz says. “We are methodical in how we prepare our cases and leave no stone unturned. We are passionate about our work and totally committed to win and make our communities safer.”

5 A recent Stanford Study from the Journal of Adolescent Health also alarmingly determined that young people who were vaping were five to seven times more likely to be infected with the COVID 19 virus than those who did not vape! 6 Moreover, chronic absenteeism (from heath issues) that occurs with (JUUL vaping) results in a significant reduction of school district revenue.

ASTON & EASTON is comprised of a family of personal injury litigators known for standing tall in the face of adversity, and that reputation transcended the courtroom in 2020. The firm was in various stages of litigation on several high-profile matters when the COVID-19 pandemic was declared a national emergency in March. But the Orange County-based law firm had contingencies in place that demonstrated true resilience. “Despite the sudden impact of the COVID crisis, the familial nature of our firm allowed us to adapt quickly and efficaciously to the situation,” says Founding Partner Doug Easton, who has secured hundreds of millions of dollars for the injured during his 50-year legal career alongside his sons Brian, Matt, and Travis. “When Orange County basically shut down in March, we had already spent years preparing our office to go remote in the event of earthquakes and other natural disasters. We adapted those plans for the pandemic and added staggered schedules, masks, and social distancing to mitigate the disruption,” adds Co-Managing Partner Matt Easton. That strategy was clearly effective, and Easton & Easton seamlessly transitioned to a mostly remote operational plan in the early spring and then safely reopened their office during the summer in accordance with local guidelines. Their ability to continue successfully advocating remotely through video conferencing has greatly benefited their clients, who were still suffering immense

losses and trauma. It further exemplified why, for the past three years, the firm has been ranked Tier 1 in Orange County for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms.”

HIGH-PROFILE LITIGATION IN 2020

Easton & Easton currently represents a construction worker whose arm was nearly torn off his body in a construction accident when the general contractor failed to follow the required safety protocols for servicing the elevator. While the client was greasing the worksite elevator, it suddenly began running without warning, catching his arm in the process. The man now suffers from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). “The defendant tried to cut corners at the expense of worker safety, and we intend to hold them fully accountable for these life-altering injuries and the constant agony our client now suffers,” Co-Managing Partner Brian Easton says. “We are also fighting to ensure they take corrective measures to prevent anything like this in the future.” The firm also represents the family of a victim who drowned in a boating accident at the Catalina Sea Ranch. A broken musselfarm line, which was tethered to the sea floor, had been negligently tied off so that it floated up near the ocean surface and caught the rudder of the victim’s boat, causing it to

capsize. The victim, a husband and father, drowned after suffering from hypothermia while waiting for Coast Guard rescue in the open sea. “The Catalina Sea Ranch invited boaters to come fish near the mussel farm even though they knew they had numerous broken lines that they could not properly secure,” Partner Travis Easton says. “They filed for bankruptcy as a result of the company’s mismanagement and our litigation—which is another hurdle we are clearing as we fight for maximum compensation on behalf of our client’s family.”

EXPANDING AND LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

The firm’s leadership also saw opportunity amid the cacophony. While many cases were still pending and the injury landscape was changing due to COVID-19, the firm expanded its offerings. They saw large groups of people who still needed representation and began accepting mass-tort litigation claims. Unrelated actions against the manufacturers of the antacid Zantac and of the weed-killer Round-Up are in their early stages, says Matt Easton. “We were considering expanding our practice beforehand to help more people and, since mass torts involve similar steps on a larger scale, it has been a natural progression,” Matt notes.“We remain true to our mission of fighting for the injured and are now in a position to use the familial synergy at the heart of our firm to make an even bigger impact for more clients, both in personal injury and mass-tort litigation.”

Our methodology for determining these awards remains the same as it did when Best Lawyers was founded almost 40 years ago: peer-review. Lawyers are the best resource to provide feedback on the caliber of work performed by their peers. “Ones to Watch” is not a seed list to Best Lawyers and all hopeful candidates must be nominated and vetted by their peers recognized in Best Lawyers.
