Panish Shea & Boyle LLP Recognized for Having Four of California’s Largest Verdicts in 2012
In The Recorder’s annual report of California’s top verdicts, four of the highlighted verdicts were obtained by Panish Shea & Boyle LLP – the most by any law firm. The four jury verdicts total over $75 million and all are among the top 33 highest in the state in 2012. Last year, Panish Shea & Boyle LLP was recognized by The Recorder as having five of the top verdicts in California in 2011, with awards totaling over $65 million.
The four verdicts demonstrate Panish Shea & Boyle LP’s continued ability to win significant verdicts at trial year after year. The 2012 verdicts include a $36.5 million jury verdict in a case arising from a big-rig truck crash that left a woman catastrophically injured (Sheth v. Schneider National Carriers, Inc.); a $20 million jury verdict in a case involving a hit-and-run truck crash that left a 47-year-old woman catastrophically injured (Rivas v. J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc.); a $10 million jury verdict in the death of a three-year-old boy with special needs who died on a bus ride home from school (Cisler v. Capistrano Unified School District); and a $9.3 million verdict for an injured worker in a case taken on by the firm the week before trial (Cedillo v. the Efim Sobol Trust).
