CaseyGerry attorneys continue to rack up the accolades, with partners David S. Casey Jr. and Robert J. Francavilla recognized as among “California’s Top 25 Plaintiff Lawyers” by the Los Angeles Daily Journal and San Francisco Daily Journal -- leading California legal publications.
In this inaugural list of the state’s top plaintiff lawyers, the Daily Journal honored top lawyers bringing single cases and multiparty actions in antitrust, labor and employment, environment, personal injury, privacy and data security, product defect and securities and financial fraud.
“We could have honored more, but in our opinion, these are the ones who consistently force broad change in the law, industry and society. As you read about these men and women, there is a common thread -- and it doesn’t have dollar signs; they truly care about having an impact,” the Daily Journal editorial staff said when introducing the honorees, adding that the work these lawyers are doing to hold governments and industry accountable will stand the test of time.
CaseyGerry is one of a handful of the California firms on the list to have two lawyers honored -- and Casey Jr. and Francavilla are the only San Diego attorneys featured.
Both Casey and Francavilla are known for taking on high-profile, complex cases -- concentrating their practices on serious personal injury and wrongful death cases.
A past president of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Casey Jr. has spent more than 35 years practicing law in San Diego and has received more than 60 awards throughout his career, including the “Pursuit of Justice” award from the American Bar Association and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Consumer Watchdog. Additionally, the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego created The David. S. Casey Jr. Award -- a perpetual award given each year to honor civility, professionalism and integrity in the legal profession. Over the last few years, Casey Jr. has helped obtain dozens of multimillion dollar results for clients in a complex range of cases that relate to aviation, maritime, premises liability, faulty equipment, government tort claims, complex motorcycle accidents, trucking and automobile crashes.
A tenacious litigator, Francavilla has also been involved in numerous high profile cases -- including a recent $5.4 million verdict against the U.S. Government, a case which involved a motorcyclist who was seriously injured in a collision caused by a border patrol agent. Honored by Consumer Attorneys of San Diego with the “Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award” on five occasions, Francavilla has also received numerous professional accolades throughout his career.
Both Casey Jr. and Francavilla have been recognized by the San Diego Daily Transcript as Top Attorneys and Top Influentials.
