Obtaining Justice for the Injured
Lieff Cabraser has played a leading role in many of the largest, most important personal injury and wrongful death cases in the United States. These cases have involved negligent conduct as well as a vast range of defective products -- from dangerous prescription drugs and faulty medical devices to unsafe vehicles and consumer products. In many cases, we assisted our clients in persuading the corporate defendants to issue recalls or improve their safety procedures for the protection of all consumers and patients.
Outstanding Legal Talent
We are experienced trial lawyers that represent only plaintiffs. Many of our attorneys have been recognized by national and state publications as leading personal injury attorneys. In 2008, Lieff Cabraser injury attorney Robert J. Nelson was selected California Lawyer of the Year by California Lawyer magazine for obtaining a $54.4 million verdict against DaimlerChrysler.
Since 2003, The National Law Journal has selected Lieff Cabraser as one of the top plaintiffs’ law firms in the nation. We are one of only two plaintiffs’ law firms in the United States to receive this honor for the last ten years. U.S. News and Best Lawyers has recognized our firm as the nation’s Law Firm of the Year for 2011-2012 in the category of Mass Torts and Plaintiffs’ Class Actions.
We have obtained more than $500 million for our clients in individual personal cases, including awards of over $3 million in 27 separate cases. In addition, we have obtained judgments and settlements in excess of $15 billion in product liability class actions. This amount does not include our work in the landmark $206 billion recovery in the Attorney General litigation against the tobacco industry.
The resources to hold the powerful accountable
We are among the largest firms in the United States that represent only plaintiffs. In addition to our sixty-plus attorneys, we have on staff multiple registered nurses, over 20 legal assistants, and investigators and litigation support specialists. Considerable personnel resources, along with our ability to advance the costs in our clients’ cases, enable Lieff Cabraser to litigate against the largest and most powerful corporations in the world.
Attentive, personal service
We work closely with our clients throughout the litigation process to maximize and expedite their recoveries. Each client is assigned an attorney who is responsible for prosecuting the case and regularly communicating with the client. At the same time, our attorneys work as a team, drawing upon their combined knowledge, training, and skills to provide our clients with decades of litigation expertise.
