Boutique plaintiff’s litigation firm Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield LLP relishes the tough cases. Senior partner David Casey, Jr. explains: “We are one of the few plaintiff’s firms with the resources to aggressively litigate high profile, complicated cases all the way from pre-filing discovery through appeals.”
The firm’s many recent successes back that up. From a recent multi-million dollar verdict against the United States Border Patrol, to a slew of seven-figure settlements (including a more than $5 million dollar settlement for a wrongful death case in Texas, a $2.5 million settlement against the Border Patrol following a successful trial, and a $7.5 million settlement in a complex premises liability case), CaseyGerry has been making headlines. “Now, more than ever, CaseyGerry is poised to be leader in large-scale, hard-fought litigation,” Casey notes.
The firm is also prominent in class actions and mass tort litigation. Over the last year and a half, CaseyGerry has achieved results including an $8 million settlement in a successfully-certified tax refund class action, a $9.5 million arbitration in a mass tort case stemming from a tragic air show crash in Reno, Nevada, and a $32 million settlement in a class action dealing with harassing phone calls made by banks and creditors. Respected in the legal community, CaseyGerry partners are frequently appointed to leadership positions in high-visibility nation-wide mass tort cases like the NFL Concussion Litigation and numerous pharmaceutical and product defect actions, such as Hydroxycut cases in multidistrict litigation.
Attorneys at CaseyGerry also understand the importance of giving back to the community, and are involved organizations such as HeadNorth and the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center. On a professional level, the firm boasts an impressive resume few can match: a former President of the State Bar, a former President of the American Association for Justice, former presidents of the Consumer Attorneys of California and San Diego, an Officer (and soon to be President) of the California Women Lawyers organization, current President of the San Diego County Fair Board, and many others.
Despite these successes and accolades, the people at CaseyGerry remain committed to one mission above all: helping their clients. Partner Gayle Blatt, head of the Casey Gerry’s complex litigation division, notes that “all of our resources — experienced and sophisticated trial lawyers, an in-house investigative team, and experts in legal analysis — are designed with the goal of putting together the best case we can for the people we serve. That is our purpose.”
With a state-of-the-art office that includes the ability to conduct in-house jury focus groups, and a savvy staff of professionals all driven to fight for the firm’s mission of helping its clients, the future continues to look bright for CaseyGerry. “We are proud of the strategic approach we take on major, complex cases and have some very exciting things in the works for the near future,” Casey says. “Keep your eyes on the news — we are preparing to file some high-stakes litigation which could have far-reaching consequences.”
