The National Law Journal (NLJ) has recognized Panish Shea & Boyle LLP as among the leading plaintiffs’ law firms in the country in its annual “Plaintiffs’ Hot List”. Only 19 law firms nationwide were chosen for the honor, and Panish Shea & Boyle is only firm on the list that is headquartered in Southern California.
According to the NLJ article published October 1, 2012, the selected firms “have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs side” and “possessed an impressive track record of wins within the past three to five years” including one win between June 30, 2011, and July 1, 2012.
In the article, the NLJ highlights some of the firm’s significant victories since 2011, including a $17.845 million award in a wrongful death case involving four family members killed when a Marine jet crashed into their home, a $17 million jury verdict against the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority in the wrongful death of a visually impaired passenger, a $36.5 million jury verdict against Schneider National for a big-rig crash that left a woman with severe spinal cord injuries, and a $20 million jury verdict for a woman who suffered a brain injury in a hit-and-run accident involving a J.B. Hunt tractor trailer.
“Ensuring that our clients get the compensation and justice that they deserve is what motivates us,” said firm Partner Brian Panish. “We are proud that The National Law Journal has chosen to recognize the firm for its accomplishments over the past year.”
Panish Shea & Boyle LLP, located in Los Angeles, California, represents plaintiffs in wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, class action, and business litigation cases. Panish Shea & Boyle LLP was also named to the NLJ’s Plaintiff’s Hot List in 2005.
