David S. Casey, Jr. managing partner of CaseyGerry, has been recognized as one of the “100 Leading Lawyers in California” for 2018 by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal.
Highlighting the state’s most influential legal practitioners, the Top 100 list is compiled each year by Daily Journal staffers, and was featured in a special supplement published in September. Casey, Jr. was selected not only for his considerable involvement in the legal community locally and nationally, but also for his work on a number of high profile cases, including serving as liaison counsel in the ongoing Wells Fargo class action. “I’m at a point where I like giving back,” he says in the article.
Each year, the Daily Journal – California’s preeminent legal publication – also lauds top plaintiffs lawyers for making a difference far beyond the lives of their clients by using their legal skills to make real and lasting change. Casey, Jr. was also awarded that honor for the third consecutive year.
With a career spanning more than 40 years, Casey, Jr.’s legal skills and landmark cases have had far-reaching consequences, impacting both consumers and the legal community. A third-generation attorney, he is past president of the American Association of Trial Lawyers (now known as the American Association for Justice) and has been lauded with numerous professional accolades throughout his career, including a perpetual award in his honor, the “David S. Casey, Jr. Consumer Advocate Award” from the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. A fellow of the International Academy of Barristers, he is the recipient of more than 80 awards and was inducted into the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego’s “Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame.”
