SUCCESSFUL LAWYERS, ANY WAY YOU COUNT IT.
The practice of law isn’t all about the numbers, but they do matter.
TEN. As in ten-figure recoveries. Girardi | Keese attorneys
have obtained payouts greater than $1 billion three times,
one of only a handful of law firms to do so. Plaintiffs in the
Sempra Energy, El Paso Gas and Vioxx lawsuits shared
in multibillion-dollar settlements obtained by founding
partner Tom Girardi.
NINE. Girardi | Keese has nine members of the American
Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)—which limits its
membership to lawyers who have tried 20 civil jury trials. No
other California firm devoted to representing plaintiffs on a
contingent-fee basis has as many ABOTA members. The active
ABOTA lawyers include Tom Girardi, Jack Girardi, Bob Finnerty,
Jim O’Callahan, Dave Lira, Jake Courtney, Amy Solomon, Andre
Rekte and Shawn McCann. Two other firm lawyers are on the
verge of becoming ABOTA eligible.
SEVEN. In March 2011, juries in three different
courtrooms returned seven-figure verdicts in cases tried
by Girardi | Keese partners. McCann won a case for a worker
injured on a jobsite, Rekte prevailed in a medical malpractice
case, and Graham LippSmith succeeded in a federal copyright
and trademark misappropriation case. Each of these verdicts
exceeded $1 million before costs and fees were added.
TWO. Two Girardi | Keese lawyers, Lyssa Roberts and
McCann, were awarded the 2011 Scott Baldwin Award
by the American Association for Justice. The award
recognizes outstanding trial work by young lawyers who
actively serve the legal community.
ONE. When it comes to cases, each one is a cause for
Girardi | Keese. Fighting for the best interests of clients
drives the firm’s attorneys each time they take on a case.
Their steadfast commitment to putting clients first makes
for excellent lawyering, which means favorable results, lives
changed for the better and justice served.
