Lawdragon legal magazine has published its annual listing of the “500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers in America,” a listing that includes Lieff Cabraser partners Elizabeth Cabraser, Mark Chalos, Paulina do Amaral, Steven Fineman, Rachel Geman, Lexi Hazam, Richard Heimann, and Annika K. Martin. The Guide, first published in 2007, offers Lawdragon’s take on “the best of the U.S. plaintiff bar who specialize in representing individuals who have suffered injuries from accidents, pharmaceuticals, civil rights abuse and other torts.”
As the publication notes, “We are particularly pleased to recognize the 170 female lawyers in this guide. Much has been said about the lack of representation of women in the plaintiff bar, and after much research and discussion with the elite lawyers of this bar, it’s clear times have changed. From San Francisco’s Mary Alexander, who has won billions for consumers injured by lead paint as well as millions for individuals who have lost their lives or health in horrific accidents, to [Lieff Cabraser founding partner] Elizabeth Cabraser, who leads class actions over faulty breast implants, pharmaceuticals and defective products, it’s a great time to be a woman advocating for consumers.”
Congratulations to all the selected lawyers on this outstanding accomplishment!
