June 30, 2017 marks 70 years since David S. Casey, Sr. hung his shingle to practice law in San Diego. After naval combat in World War II in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, he decided he wanted to spend the rest of his legal career in San Diego. When he arrived in San Diego, there were fewer than 400 lawyers. Only a small number of them would actually go to trial, which is where he excelled, trying over 600 jury trials in his career. Since he launched his practice, CaseyGerry has emerged as one of the region’s preeminent plaintiffs’ firms – known for taking on high profile, complex litigation in a range of practice areas. Through it all, the firm has remained true to its original mission: Protecting the rights of individuals who have been seriously injured or lost loved ones.
