Jack Girardi Makes OC Weekly's 2016 'Best Of OC' Issue

Attorney-Jack-Girardi.jpgAccording to OC Weekly:

"There are plenty of good trial lawyers in Southern California, but few, if any, are better than John Girardi. The veteran Los Angeles-based Girardi, regularly hailed as a "Super Lawyer," has dominated Orange County's courthouses for more than a decade while specializing in product and government-entity liability, as well as employment law and class actions. He doesn't fit the mold of a stereotypical pushy, obnoxious lawyer eager to find a TV news camera. He's well-prepared and unflappable, even when taking on teams of taxpayer-funded opposing counsel prone to courtroom shenanigans and legal trickery. Police agencies here usually triumph in lawsuits, except when Girardi, whose personality and presentations endear juries, is involved. He has represented decent cops harassed by corrupt bosses in Anaheim and Newport Beach and captured damages and fees topping $7 million. Several years ago, he secured a $4.5 million settlement in a case involving a Trinity Broadcasting Network pastor who left a church meeting heavily intoxicated and caused a serious traffic collision."
