David S. Casey Jr., Robert J. Francavilla only San Diego Lawyers featured on Daily Journal’s Top Plaintiff Attorney List
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – CaseyGerry partners David S. Casey Jr. and Robert J. Francavilla have been recognized as among California’s Top 25 Plaintiffs Lawyers by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal – the leading daily California legal publication.
In this inaugural list of the state’s top plaintiff lawyers, the Daily Journal honored top lawyers bringing single cases and multi-party 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 editor staff said in introducing the honorees.
CaseyGerry is one of a handful of firms to have two lawyers honored —and Casey and Francavilla are the only San Diego attorneys on the list.
Both Casey and Francavilla are known for taking on high profile, complex cases and concentrate their practices on serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. 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. Francavilla has also been involved in numerous high profile cases – including a recent $5.4 million verdict against the U.S. Government, in a case involving a motorcyclist who was seriously injured in a collision caused by a Border Patrol agent.
CaseyGerry was established in 1947, and is the oldest plaintiffs’ law firm in San Diego. The firm’s 15 attorneys practice in numerous areas, including serious personal injury, product liability, pharmaceutical, mass tort and class action litigation. Headquartered at 110 Laurel St. in the Banker’s Hill neighborhood of San Diego, the firm also has an office in Carlsbad, Calif. For more information, call 619-238-1811.
