Top 10: Annual Southern California Super Lawyers List
Tom Girardi, along with nine other California lawyers, made the Top 10 Southern California Super Lawyers list for 2016, which made for a total of 14 years that Mr. Girardi has been selected as a "Super Lawyer" on both Top 10 and Top 100 lists.
What is Super Lawyers?
Super Lawyers is a rating service. It recognizes lawyers with great levels of peer recognition and professional achievement. Not all lawyers are selected - in fact, only a small percentage of all attorneys in each state are selected for inclusion, after having been nominated, independently vetted, and favorably evaluated by peers.
What Makes Tom Girardi a 'Super Lawyer'?
A significant part of the Super Lawyers selection is the level of a lawyer's professional achievement. There are 12 indicators, among them are the size and scope of the lawyer's successful verdicts and settlements, as well as the lawyer's client base.
Since founding Girardi | Keese, Mr. Girardi has led his firm to more than $10 billion in verdicts and settlements secured on behalf of his clients, many of whom suffered some of the most serious injuries imaginable, at the hands of those who committed wrongdoing.
A Few Examples of Tom Girardi's Cases
In the 1990s, Mr. Girardi was part of the team that represented the sickened residents of Hinkley, Calif., in the case made famous by the film Erin Brockovich, ultimately helping to achieve a record multimillion-dollar settlement. Mr. Girardi has also gone up against Ford Motor Company for defective seatbelts, drug maker Merck for its dangerous painkiller Vioxx, and recently the L.A. Dodgers for fan violence and lack of security at Dodger Stadium.
Congratulations to Tom Girardi
