O

ne of the nation’s leading personal injury, products liability, and class action law firms, Robinson Calcagnie, Inc. has been instrumental in setting legal precedents that protect the rights of people when the actions of businesses result in unnecessary harm. When the law is used to prevent corporate accountability, the only way to fight back is to use law. According to Mark P. Robinson, Jr., founder and senior partner. “We may help one particular person in a case, and the result in that case will help a lot of people we’ve never met who have similar injuries or have been harmed in a similar way,” he says.


PEOPLE OVER PROFITS

SAFETY BY LAWSUIT

Most recently, a jury in California found a connection between ovarian cancer and Johnson & Johnson baby powder, a product used by a woman for decades. Agreeing with the results of more than 20 research studies that link talc to an increased risk of ovarian cancer, the jury awarded $417 million in compensatory and punitive damages. This award could help others who develop cancer due to potential product liability.

In another case in which Robinson was co-counsel, a jury awarded over $100 million to a young plaintiff who was burned in a Ford Pinto fuel system fire. This alerted other fuel system fire victims to bring their own lawsuits as well. Sometimes one verdict can help hundreds of other similarly situated victims.

In a second recent verdict awarded to a client represented by another law firm, a jury determined that a man developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer after repeated use of the popular weed killer Roundup. Robinson says the $289 million verdict has a widespread effect.

METRO MAP This map shows the Best Lawyersdesignated “metro areas” in this publication.

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions—metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

E ASTON & E ASTON, LLP D

oug Easton and his sons Brian, Matt, and Travis know— based on their 80 years of collective experience—that the key to successfully litigating high-value plaintiffs’ personal injury claims lies in an attorney’s ability to tell a client’s personal story in a compelling way. While a plaintiff might represent a line on a balance sheet to corporate wrongdoers or the insurance industry, the Eastons know that the people behind their cases have suffered grievous harm, and they take their mission to be a powerful force for injury victims very seriously. Close to three decades after the firm opened its doors, its founding principle remains steadfast, with more than $100 million in recoveries standing as proof that it is a force to contend with. “As a family of litigators, we share a life-long passion for this work,” Doug says. “Finding the compelling story at the heart of each case is paramount in order to achieve great results, and we know how to find and tell that story.” The Eastons recognize this is not always easy, but it is often the most important part of what they do. “In some cases, it can take months or years to truly get to the heart of the matter. But once we find that story, it drives our efforts throughout t h e c a s e ,” s a y s Matt Easton. This emphasis on the human side of each case seems to have developed from the familial struc ture

of the firm and the team dynamic that naturally emanates therefrom. As Brian Easton puts it, “When you hire one of us, you get all of us. It’s that simple.” It’s a team dynamic that gets results and has the Eastons’ peers in the legal community regularly taking notice. To start, the firm itself has been named a Tier 1 firm in Orange County for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” in 2019. Each member of the Easton family holds numerous prestigious credentials and accolades, including AV Preeminent distinctions from Martindale-Hubbell, listings in both Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers, and recognitions from the American Academy of Trial Lawyers’ Premier 100, the National Trial Lawyers’ Top 100, and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, among many others. In recent years, the Eastons have had numerous verdicts and settlements recognized among the “Top Multi-Million Dollar Settlements” and “Top 50 Personal Injury Verdicts” for California. Even so, these recognitions are not what drive the Easton team—it’s clearing a path to recovery in cases that, on face value, often appear difficult, if not insurmountable. “We’re tenacious in our representation and have a singular focus on helping clients maximize their claims,” Doug says. “It’s at the heart of what our family and this firm have always been about.”

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

IN THE HEADLINES

Latham & Watkins: George J. Mihlsten (Land Use and Zoning Law; Real Estate Law, 1995) represented the owner of the Los Angeles Times as three of the paper’s buildings underwent the application process for becoming protected cultural monuments. The William Pereira– designed Times Mirror Building, constructed in 1973, is one such building that preservationists are fighting to save from the development plans of its new owners. The globe situated in the Times’ lobby was the subject of debate between Onni Group—the new property owners—and the paper.

O’Melveny & Myers: Seth Aronson (Bet-theCompany Litigation; Commercial Litigation; Litigation – Regulatory Enforcement (SEC Telecom, Energy); Litigation – Securities, 2006) represented Skechers USA, Inc., against a shareholder class action filed by Laborers Local 234 Benefit Fund. Skechers, a footwear company based out of California, denied false-statements allegations as “frivolous and without merit,” KFMB CBS News 8 reported. “Between October 2017 and July 2018, the company announced four consecutive quarters of record net sales, including our highest quarterly net sales in the first quarter of 2018, and record annual sales for the full-year 2017,” Weinberg said in a statement. “During that time, the company was—and still is—focused on efficiently and strategically growing our business on a global scale.”

Panish Shea & Boyle: Brian Panish (Aviation Law; Insurance Law; Litigation – Insurance; Litigation – Labor and Employment; Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Plaintiffs; Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs, 2001) represented Stephon Clark’s two young sons against the city of Sacramento. Police shot and killed Clark, who was unarmed, in March. “These are young children who will be without a father for the rest of their lives. He was a good father, and we hope to vindicate his name for a shooting that never should have occurred,” Panish told the Daily News about the reason for the lawsuit. Clark’s parents and grandparents have filed similar suits.

Richards, Watson & Gershon: Laurence S. Wiener (Land Use and Zoning Law, 2016) represented the city of Beverley Hills against a lawsuit claiming its rent stabilization ordinance required the disclosure of confidential data. “The city council values the rights and privacy of our residents and only seeks this information to ensure all housing providers are abiding by the city’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance,” Wiener said in a statement, adding that the city will continue to host meetings between tenants and landlords to determine a way forward on the ordinance.

HONORABLE MENTION Traurig: G. Michelle Ferreira ► Greenberg (Litigation and Controversy – Tax; Tax law, 2011)

and Linda B. Hirschson (Trusts and Estates, 1989) were among the winners of Euromoney Legal Media Group’s annual Americas Women in Business Law awards in June. Ferreira is the managing shareholder in Greenberg Traurig’s San Francisco office and a former tax litigator for the IRS. Hirschson chairs the firm’s estate planning group in New York. Previously, she was a member of the American College of Trusts and Estates Counsel’s board of regents.

& Spalding: Peter Hsiao (Litigation – ► King Environmental, 2011) joined King & Spalding as a

partner in its Los Angeles office. Hsiao is a member of the firm’s environmental, health, and safety team. “Peter is a highly respected environmental attorney with a stellar reputation,” Wick Sollers, leader of the practice group Hsiao has joined, says in a press release. “He adds significant firepower to the environmental, health, and safety team and will broaden our capabilities in California.” Prior to joining the firm, Hsiao worked on the cleanup of the San Francisco International Airport, served as a trial lawyer for the U.S. Department of Justice, and received the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Golden Eagle Award.

IN

recent months, Bentley & More LLP has been on the move, both literally and in its practice. In June, the firm added former San Bernardino/ Riverside ABOTA Chapter President James F. Tierney, III, as a Senior Trial Attorney with decades of experience fighting on behalf of consumers. Tierney is a Best Lawyers® recognized attorney in the field of Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. Coinciding with his addition, the firm expanded its footprint and opened its first satellite office, in Redlands, CA, broadening its reach

into the Inland Empire communities in further service to California consumers. That service has been repeatedly recognized, with Keith More, also recognized by Best Lawyers in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs, named by the Los Angeles Daily Journal as one of the Top Labor & Employment Attorneys in California for the second consecutive year, while Greg Bentley (recognized by Best Lawyers for Insurance Law) was once again named as a Top Plaintiff Attorney by the Daily Journal. Keeping itself on the move, Bentley &

More achieved the largest wrongful death settlement in the City of Los Angeles’s history, and recorded multiple six, seven, and eight figure results, while also maintaining its prominent national role as e-cigarette litigation lawyers. To cap it all off, Bentley & More moved its main office, expanding into a fully-renovated, free-standing office building in Newport Beach. Bentley & More invites all to visit its new space as the firm moves into its third year of practice, and continues fighting for consumers across California, and around the nation.

CATASTROPHIC INJURY, WRONGFUL DEATH, MASS TORTS, COMPLEX BUSINESS LITIGATION

F

Authorities in Family Law Jaffe and Clemens has been at the forefront of California family law since its founding in 1977. When high-networth individuals in business, entertainment, and sports in Southern California seek professionals to handle their complex cases with the utmost sensitivity and discretion, they turn to a firm that has been influential in shaping family law through published cases and leadership in statewide, national, and international family law communities. For years, publications like The Best Lawyers in America© have recognized Jaffe and Clemens attorneys for being top in their field, with particular experience in divorce taxation, intellectual property, interstate jurisdiction, and complex business and financial issues. This expertise is

complemented by a depth of knowledge, experience, and sensitivity in traditional areas including child custody, child support, and spousal support. In the first two years that the annual award was given, Best Lawyers recognized Daniel Jaffe and Bruce Clemens with Los Angeles Family Law “Lawyer of the Year.” In 2017, the same award was given to Partner William Ryden. Only a single lawyer in each area of practice in each community is honored with the “Lawyer of the Year” award each year. All 10 lawyers at Jaffe and Clemens have 13 to 56 years of experience. Eight of these lawyers have been at Jaffe and Clemens between 11 and 40 years. That is unparalleled experience, longevity, and stability.

hen Mark Boal, producer of the podcast “Serial” and films “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Hurt Locker,” sued the U.S. government in 2016, it was to protect his First Amendment rights. After his taped interviews with dishonorably discharged U.S. Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl were subpoenaed, Boal took a stand—and won, with the help of his attorney, JeanPaul Jassy. “I think the First Amendment is the backbone of our democracy,” Jassy said, taking a moment from his busy practice at Los Angeles law firm Jassy Vick Carolan to discuss Boal’s case, and others. “Without free speech, without a free press, we don’t have real freedom, and we don’t have the information that we need to select our government representatives and to make the decisions we need to make in a democracy. For me, in my career, it’s helped me a lot to feel good about and believe in the work that I do. To feel like you’re doing something that helps society. If you have that in you, it can help carry you a long way.” Jassy came into First Amendment law on the advice of his former professor and mentor, Erwin Chemerinsky. After a few years practicing with a firm that got a lot of First Amendment cases, Jassy started his own firm in 2007. Since then, he’s seen the law adapt to new mediums and put to new uses. When asked to give an example of one area in media that is opening new avenues between the newsroom and the courtroom, Jassy points to the rise of data-driven journalism. “Journalists are relying on large amounts of data and processing that and writing really important, impactful stories about it. A lot of times that data needs to come from a government agency. One of the things we do is help journalists and media companies try to get data from government agencies so that they can write these stories, for example.” Jassy praises First Amendment law for maintaining its consistency and fundamental principles amid the frenzied speed at which media industry operates to cover the daily churn of politics. When asked how has First Amendment law changed over the years, “Some of it is new, but a lot of it is the same, classic law that gets applied to a new medium,” Jassy said. “You’ll have a defamation case that, 25 years ago, might have been just about print media, and now it’s on the internet. The law, obviously, evolves all the time, but it may be the same principles, the same law.”

HE COMPLEXITIES OF P H A R M AC E U T I C A L D R U G S and safety risks are not part of a law school curriculum. However, lawyers must understand and explain the science behind any alleged related liability. That’s why the law firm of Robinson Calcagnie, Inc. does more than merely find experts to help them educate juries. “This morning I spent two hours on the phone learning more about opioids because I need to know what’s going on and how they’re causing so many serious problems in this country,” says Mark P. Robinson, Jr., founder and senior partner. This commitment to understanding every aspect of a case extends to maintaining the firm’s expertise and resources in order to establish a balance of power in the courtroom where influential corporations and insurance companies are involved. “We’re not just doing this for our own clients, but helping other people to learn

from what we’ve learned,” says Robinson. “Just as we open up our own evidence and testing warehouse to other lawyers, we also help when we get a particular kind of case. For example, someone from LA called me regarding Roundup—he wants to see wh at we h ave, what we k now. We’re goi ng to help him.” T h i s k i nd of collaboration makes it possible for the f irm to meet its goal of assisting people who suffer catastrophic personal injury, as well as helping the families left to cope with a wrongful death. The stakes are high in litigation involving substantial economic loss and damages. “There are different types of evidence to show the nexus between the product and the particular outcome,” says Robinson. “At the end of the day, the jury decides if there’s causation. So, it’s our job to make sure the jurors understand the underpinning science.”

5 COMMON MISTAKES

YOU MUST AVOID AFTER A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT n my almost 30 years of experience, Imistakes these are the five most common you must avoid following an accident: 1. Not Calling the Police

PHOTO BY AMY CANTRELL / ILLUSTRATION: ISTOCK/ IEVGENII VOLYK

If you suffered serious personal injuries you should immediately dial 911. The police will arrive at the scene, gather the accident information, and prepare a police report. You will also be able to get any needed medical attention. If you have suffered serious injuries, go to the hospital. Accept that ambulance ride. Don’t drive yourself there.

2. Not Getting Prompt Medical Care

Eric Dubin is a severe injury and wrongful death attorney, recognized with the 2019 Orange County “Lawyer of the Year” award for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs by Best Lawyers®. If you need our firm’s help, contact (949) 477-8040 or edubin@dubinlaw.com.

Don’t ever say, “I’m fine.” Injuries—like soft tissue or traumatic brain injuries— can take as long as a week to show up. See a doctor. The amount of time you waited will be used against you by the defense. Get the best care possible. All lost earnings while you are recovering will be included in your damages claim.

3. Posting on Social Media

Don’t post about your collision or your injuries. Don’t post photos. Think before you post. Ask family and friends not to post about your collision. Lawyers and jurors will have access to anything posted on the internet. The defense will use anything they can against you.

4. Trusting Insurance Companies

That “concerned” insurance adjustor’s job is to pay out as little as possible of the company’s money. Do not talk to

What you do in the hours a nd days a fter a motor vehicle accident can make all the difference in how much compensation you recover for your injuries and losses. After a crash, ad ren a l i ne t a kes over. Insurance companies thrive on innocent mistakes you can make. Eric Dubin, Dubin Law Firm

the other driver’s insurance adjustor or agent. Don’t even say hello or call back. Let your attorney handle all communications. This is critical. Here’s an example of how a single conversation can hurt your case: Insurance Adjustor: “Hi. How are you today?” You: “I’m Fine. Who’s calling?” Result: The adjustor notes in the claim file that you said you were “fine” and injury-free on the date of the call and will argue that you felt no further pain and suffering after that date.

5. Waiting Too Long Before Filing a Case

Almost all civil cases have statutes of limitations (otherwise known as deadlines) by which time your accident case must be filed with the court. If you miss the deadline, then you give up all rights to ever recover compensation. In some cases, the deadline is only six months.

• CRITICAL BONUS TIP: Check Your UIM Coverage Today

T he best way to protect you rsel f i s t o c a r r y a s mu c h u n i n s u r e d a nd u nderi nsu red motorist (U I M) insurance as possible. It’s affordable a n d i n v a lu a bl e . We r e c o m m e n d carrying at least $250,000 UIM.

RECORD-SETTING RESULTS IN GROUNDBREAKING CASES

As Frantz Law Group approaches its 40th anniversary, the firm is litigating some of the most high-profile cases in state and federal courts By Justin Smulison

F

rantz Law Group is recognized as one of the premier plaintiffs’ law firms in the United States, with specialized experience litigating wrongful deat h, catastroph ic persona l i nju r y, wildfire and public utility litigation, as well as mass torts and business litigation. Frantz Law Group’s extraordinary record of winning consistently—and winning big—demonstrates that its clients are in great hands. Since its inception, the firm has achieved landmark court victories for injured plaintiffs, including one of the largest jury verdicts in San Diego County history: $223 million,* for which the highest pre-trial offer was $100,000. Frantz Law Group also obtained a $55.4 million jury verdict* against SDG&E (a Sempra subsidiary) for the families of four Marines who died as a result of SDG&E’s negligence. The defendant utility corporation had refused to make any pretrial settlement offers. A not her precedent-set ti ng v ictor y included an $18.5 million verdict* in a fraud action against a drug manufacturer. Frantz later testified before Congress as an expert on the drug’s dangers and lack of efficacy and his testimony, along with that of others, contributed to the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to permanently ban the sale of the drug— which was responsible for injuries across the country—in the U.S. Frantz opened the firm in 1979 as its sole employee and has led its growth into a 30-person litigation force with a national reputation for protecting injured victims’ rights. The firm has recently made head lines in Ca lifornia for its representation of more than 8,000 clients of the Porter Ranch community in northern Los Angeles in a mass tort injury case against Southern California Gas Company and its parent company, Sempra Energy. The case stems from a 2015 gas-well blowout at the defendants’ gas-storage

facility. The gas blowout is believed to be the largest in U.S. history, and the firm proudly serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for this litigation. Frantz Law Group is also representing thousands of Californians whose lives have been devastated by the recent wildfires and mudslides of 2017 and 2018. In most cases, these clients start to rebuild their homes and replace their personal property only to find that they are significantly underinsured. The firm also represents many families who sadly lost loved ones who perished in these fires and mudslides.

“Frantz Law Group is also representing several thousand Californians whose lives have been devastated by the recent wildfires and mudslides of 2017 and 2018.” Clients recognize the firm’s extensive experience assisting victims in rebuilding their lives, as well as successfully holding the public utilities and others accountable for their negligence. Frantz Law Group (with other firms) recently successfully concluded litigation against a public utility that caused Southern California’s largest wildfire disaster, collecting over $2 billion for fire victims.* The firm is also adept at representing victims of tractor-trailer and automobile accidents. In 2016, nearly 4,000 people died in vehicle accidents in California. Over the last 39 years, the firm has represented t hou s a nd s of v ic t i m s of ve h ic u l a r negligence including pedestrian deaths, bicycle/vehicle accidents, bus and auto collisions, and, perhaps the most complex cases of all, tractor-trailer crashes.

Successfully litigating tractor-trailer collisions requires an in-depth knowledge of state and federal regulations as well as a keen understanding of the mechanical operation of big rigs and the physics of truck wrecks. In addition to the firm’s vast experience in litigating these matters, the trial lawyers work with leading forensic accident reconstructionists and trucksafety experts to thoroughly investigate, analyze, and prepare the evidence for each case to ensure a persuasive and clear presentation at trial. Frantz Law Group’s trial teams also make extensive use of mock trials and focus groups to f lesh out any potential weaknesses and emphasize strengths in a case before the team ever steps foot in a courtroom for trial. “You don’t want the real trial to be your practice run,” says Frantz. “It’s better to go to trial knowing what potential pitfalls to avoid and better to know how to deal with difficult issues in front of a jury.” Using mock trials and focus groups allows the firm to focus on presenting the strongest pieces of evidence to the jury. As a result of this extensive preparation, the firm has secured significant recoveries and settlements in trucking and motor ve h icle l it igat ion a nd i s c u r rent ly representi ng pla i nti f fs i n nea rly 40 wrongful-death and catastrophic-injury ca ses, i nclud i ng 14 w rong f u l-deat h trucking cases. Recent tractor-trailer and motor vehicle injury awards for 2017 and 2018 have resulted in more than $25 million in settlements and awards.* “We rely on an all-hands team approach to get the best results for our clients, and that has proven vital in winning many of these hard-fought cases,” Frantz says. “It’s inspiring to witness the wisdom, passion, great intellect, and experience of the lawyers and staff of Frantz Law Group who effect real change for others and make our community safer.”

*Some of these verdicts were reduced and appealed and resolved for a confidential amount. Results in other matters do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction of the result of any case as each case is dependent on its particular facts. 22 |

Q&A

2019 SURVE Y RESULTS

IN

an interview with Best Lawyers®, the attorneys of Greines, Martin, Stein & Richland discuss the unique nature of their practice. Ranked Tier 1 in Los Angeles for Appellate Practice in 2019 by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms,” these accomplished appellate attorneys offer insight into what helps their firm stand out from so many others. What qualities make a Supre me Cou r t H i s tor ic a l lawyer particularly suited Society; and all four are past to appellate practice? presidents of the Ca lifornia Intellectual curiosity—especially with regard to legal rules and doctrines—creativity, and the ability to write persuasively are important, as is the ability to winnow through multiple potential issues to highlight the handful, at most, of critical legal questions.

What challenges and advantages are unique to appellate court practice?

It is fundament to appellate practice that the factual record on appeal is limited to the evidence that has been presented in the trial court and that all issues must be viewed through an appropriate standard of review. In many instances the appellate court has discretion whether to even entertain the matter, requiring a pitch that demonstrates the importance of the issue presented. One of the great attractions of appellate practice is that it affords an opportunity to wrestle with important and interesting, intellectually challenging lega l issues. Also, the everyday practice itself is generally more “civilized” than inthe-trenches trial court litigation.

Academy of Appellate Lawyers.

Of all the appellate firms, what makes GMSR stand out?

In truth, there are only a few standalone appellate law firms in the country that exclusively handle appeals. From that group, what sets GMSR apart is our creativity, reputation, integrity, and the outstanding caliber of our attorneys. When you are on appeal, creative writing, attention to detail, having an independent set of eyes attuned to cutting-edge issues, and integrity are the keys to success. GMSR’s attorneys have these qualities in spades.

Is there a recent case you feel is of particular importance? Most recently, the Ca lifornia Supreme Cou r t adopted ou r arguments clarifying the law regarding both arbitrations and attorney ethical duties in the closely watched case of Sheppard Mullin v. J-M Manufacturing. The Court held t h at i n order for a c l ient’s conf lict waiver to b e l aw f u l , no matter how sophisticated the client, the attorney must disclose all the facts it knows concerning the conflict, and that an engagement agreement with a conflict waiver that was signed without such complete disclosure is entirely void—including any arbitration provision contained in the agreement. In addition, an attorney cannot collect fees pursuant to such an agreement, a nd is entitled to fees, i f at all, only on a quantum meruit basis that does not incentivize attorneys to withhold crucial conflict information. Our motto is, “Wi n n i ng on Appea l a nd Shaping the Law,” and in this case, we did just that.

“Winning on Appeal and Shaping the Law”

Would you discuss some of the leadership and involvement efforts at your firm, along with any pro bono work?

Our attorneys have taken on nu merous leadersh ip roles. Robin Meadow is a past president of the Los Angeles Count y Bar Association and of Public Counsel; Robert Olson is a past president of t he Ca l i for n ia Defense Counsel & Association of Southern California Defense Counsel; Marc Poster is a past president of the Beverly Hills Bar Association; Kent Richland is a past president California

Ms. Jaramilla was recently selected as one of the “Top 75 Labor & Employment Lawyers 2017 and 2018” in California by the Daily Journal. She is a current member and past president (2011-2013) of the California Employment Lawyers Association, one of California’s largest employee rights advocacy groups. She was past chair and a current active member of CELA’s Diversity Outreach Committee.
