David S. Casey Jr. featured on Daily Journal’s Top Plaintiff Attorney List
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – CaseyGerry partner David S. Casey Jr. has been recognized as among California’s Top Plaintiff’s Lawyers by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal – the leading daily California legal publications.
In this second annual list of the state’s top plaintiff lawyers, the Daily Journal lauded top lawyers making a difference far beyond the lives of their clients and using their legal skills to make real and lasting change.
“Fighting for the little guys is all in a days work for these lawyers – and often at great personal risk. They put millions of dollars on the line and spend countless hours over many years bringing cases,” the Daily Journal editorial staff said in introducing the honorees.
Casey, known for taking on high profile, complex serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, recently filed a lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court seeking to hold the smokeless tobacco industry accountable for baseball legend Tony Gwynn’s death. And in January of this year, he was appointed by the Federal Courts to the national VW Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee overseeing litigation targeting Volkswagen over its diesel emissions scandal — one of the largest in class action history.
A past president of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Casey Jr. 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. Over the last few years, he has helped obtain dozens of multi-million 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.
