Lieff Cabraser partner Jonathan D. Selbin has been selected by Law360 as a “Titan of the Plaintiffs Bar” for 2020. The publication named 10 plaintiffs’ attorneys who have “won landmark victories in high-profile class-action lawsuits on behalf of clients across the country,” a list that includes Jonathan, who achieved a multi-year string of success in cases for improper phone and text harassment of consumers under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, leading to settlements totaling nearly $370 million in 17 separate cases.
The “Titans of the Plaintiffs Bar” awards recognize lawyers who “not only excel in the courtroom in large-scale litigation, but also take on leadership roles at their firms.” In-depth profiles of each chosen attorney will roll out over the next few weeks.
Congratulations to Jonathan on this signal accomplishment!
