As the oldest plaintiff’s law firm in San Diego, CaseyGerry has earned a national reputation for its expertise in civil litigation and complex personal injury cases.
Over the years, CaseyGerry attorneys have worked to recover billions of dollars for families and individuals who have suffered serious injury or lost loved ones. We believe in individual and corporate responsibility – and also understand that most legal matters related to personal injury are extremely sensitive. That is why compassionate and confidential caring for our clients and their causes has been a hallmark of our law firm for 70 years.
At CaseyGerry, we work closely with those whose lives may have been devastated by an accident or personal injury, so our clients rely on us as not only as skilled attorneys, but as confidants and counselors. While the challenges may seem overwhelming, we handle complex litigation every day – and are here to guide you through the legal process. Caring for our clients and their cases has been – and always will be – our firm’s number one priority.

Community involvement on a national level during 9/11
During one of our nation’s most challenging times, CaseyGerry attorneys played a key role in developing the legislation and policies that led to Trial Lawyers Care (TLC), an unprecedented program which provided pro bono legal support to the families of the victims of 9/11 – enabling hundreds upon hundreds of families to better cope with the aftermath of this tragic event. The program, in which volunteer lawyers represented more than 1,700 families, was the largest pro bono undertaking in the history of American jurisprudence.
Whether the contributions are national or local in scope, our attorneys and staff work hard to make a difference – and to champion the communities that support them.
The history of our firm is firmly rooted in professional leadership. For over 70 years, CaseyGerry attorneys have held leadership positions and longtime affiliations in some of the industry’s most important organizations, among them the American Bar Associaiton, California State Bar Association, the American Association for Justice (formerly ATLA) and the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. CaseyGerry is also a founding sponsor of the San Diego Appellate Inn of Court.
Our founding partner David S. Casey, Sr., was president of the State Bar of California, and firm partner David S. Casey, Jr., is past president of the American Association for Justice – the nation’s largest trial bar – and was a driving force in that organization for more than a decade.
Other firm affiliations include the Consumer Attorneys of California; The Injury Board, an association of experienced trial attorneys; the San Diego County Bar Association; Lawyers Club San Diego; California Women Lawyers; the Civil Justice Foundation and the Bar Association of North San Diego County. In addition, our partners have been elected to such prestigious organizations as the International Society of Barristers, the American Bar Foundation and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. We have three partners inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA),
We continually strive to expand our firm’s capabilities and affiliations – so we can better meet and exceed our clients’ legal challenges and expectations.
