Posted on

The Daily Journal recently named Panish Shea & Boyle LLP founding partner Brian Panish as one of the Top 25 Plaintiff Lawyers in California.  The publication’s editor notes that the lawyers selected are the “ones who consistently force broad change in the law, industry and society” and “truly care about having an impact”.

The publication highlighted two of Panish’s recent 8-figure verdicts: a $34.5 million verdict for a man who suffered a below the knee amputation after being hit by a tractor trailer and a $17.4 million verdict for a Ph.D. student who suffered brain and jaw injuries during a rear end chain collision accident.

Since 2011 alone, Panish has obtained more than $225 million in verdicts, including a $36.5 million jury verdict against Schneider National for a big-rig crash that left a woman with severe spinal cord injuries, a $17 million jury verdict against the Los Angeles MTA in the wrongful death of a visually impaired passenger, a $17.845 million award in a wrongful death case involving a family killed when a Marine jet crashed into their home, 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, a $10.45 million jury verdict for the family of a man killed while working as a security guard on the CBS studio lot, a $8.3 million jury verdict in the first DePuy ASR Hip Implant case to go to trial, and a $15.3 million jury verdict for a woman and her daughter after the woman was severely injured on a negligently driven Alameda Contra-Costa Transit District bus.

Brian Panish founded Panish Shea & Boyle LLP in 2005.  Since then, the firm has become one of the leading Plaintiff’s law firms in the country, with over $1.4 billion in verdicts and settlements.  The firm’s attorneys have more 8-figure verdicts in personal injury and wrongful death cases than any other law firm in California.
