TRIAL LAWYER PRODUCING RESULTS
IN THE COURTROOM
In 2014, David deRubertis made national headlines by securing the largest
Sarbanes-Oxley retaliation jury verdict in history – a $6 million dollar compensatory
damage award in Zulfer v. Playboy Enterprises, Inc. Also in 2014, he achieved 8
seven-figure settlements for various clients in individual (non-class action) cases.
In addition to landing himself on the Top 100 list for the fifth consecutive year,
deRubertis was honored with the coveted Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the
Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), received a California
Lawyer of the Year (CLAY) Award and was a finalist for the Consumer Attorneys of
California (CAOC) Street Fighter of the Year Award. 2014 also saw The deRubertis
Law Firm, APC expand with the addition of Kelly Knight – himself an experienced
trial lawyer who this year was a finalist for CAALA’s Rising Star award.
The firm handles all types of employment disputes, catastrophic personal injury
matters, contingency business tort litigation, and other consumer rights cases,
and deRubertis frequently serves as “eve of trial” trial counsel. Demonstrating his
versatility as a trial lawyer, in 2015, deRubertis is set to try a number of employment
cases, a palimony case seeking in excess of $10 million of lifetime support, a
product liability case involving catastrophic injuries from a defective medical device
and a defamation case on behalf of the former trainer of a notable sports figure.
