Darras made a decision mearly a quarter-century ago that would affect tens of thousands of Americans. Darras took the road less traveled to help the sick, disabled, and elderly mount a heroic fight against billion-dollar insurance companies. Darras s life s work is protecting the disabled and senior citizens. He founded DarrasLaw, the largest disability and long-term care insurance litigation firm in the country. Headquartered in Ontario, California, DarrasLaw helps people from all walks of life, from professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, and business owners to blue-collar workers. Darras gives the same stellar disability advice to a trucker, dockworker, or CEO. At DarrasLaw, policyholders recover the insurance benefits they paid dearly for and richly deserve. It doesn t matter whether it s $50 or $5 million a month. It s never about the money. It s always about helping good, honest people, Darras says. Darras reviews 2,500 new disability referrals a month from all over the country. This volume allows DarrasLaw to monitor insurance company claims, policies, and procedures continuously. If an insurance carrier institutes an unreasonable new delay or denial strategy, Darras is able to identify the problem and analyze the impact before the average disability lawyer encounters it for the first time. Not only has this resulted in quicker results for his clients, it has also helped him earn the respect of the insurance industry. Darras has been honored by law dragon as one of the top 500 Lawyers, Top 500 Litigators, and Top 500 Plaintiffs Lawyers in the United States. He has annually been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America since Darras has also been named to Super Lawyers and recognized by Outstanding Lawyers in America.

He is a member of the coveted 10 Million Dollar Annual Rainmaker circle reserved for attorneys who generate $10 million in annual attorney fees. Darraslaw is the nation s top disability and long-term care insurance litigation firm. Darras has recovered nearly three quarters of a billion dollars in wrongfully denied insurance benefits. Darras has seen, evaluated, litigated, and resolved more disability and long-term care cases than any firm in the United States. His practice is literally in a disability league of its own. Darras says, I know my name means real protection for senior citizens and those disabled from sickness or injury. At DarrasLaw, we hold big insurance companies accountable E D I T I O N Frank N.

5 As the only preeminent family law practice in the United States led entirely by female partners, Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers, LLP, is known throughout Southern California for its success in protecting and preserving its clients personal assets and custodial rights. In town we have a reputation for being fearless advocates on behalf of our clients, says founding partner Lisa Helfend Meyer. That tenacity in the courtroom is equaled by our compassionate and discreet service, where we go the extra mile to ensure that these often heart-wrenching situations are made as bearable as possible. The boutique Century City firm represents men and women equally in all aspects of family law, including complex marital dissolutions, high-conflict custody matters, business valuations, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, and mediation. Furthermore, the firm s partners have been an influential force on cutting-edge divorce issues, such as same-sex relationships, domestic and international move-away cases, and custody disputes involving special needs children. The firm has represented a number of high-profile clients in Southern California, including celebrities, entertainment executives, entrepreneurs, and athletes. Recently, the firm made headlines when it represented a mother who suffered a catastrophic injury, and subsequent disability, during the birth of triplets and was then forced to pursue visitation rights for her children. This past March, the court ruled in the mother s favor, saying that she must be granted visitation rights. We re able to tackle these challenging cases because our unwavering drive, both in and out of the courtroom, allows our clients to get the results they deserve, Meyer says. While the firm is well known for its aggressive litigation skills and extensive trial work, all of its members agree that it is better to settle a case on a client s terms, rather than having a judge decide the outcome. To that end, many of the firm s cases are resolved before trial at voluntary settlement conferences, often with the assistance of retired judges and professionals to aid in the settlement process. Whether the firm goes to trial or settles, it always employs leading experts such as mental health professionals, tax attorneys, and accountants to obtain the best outcomes for its clients. SELECTED FOR INCLUSION IN southern california S E D I T I O N Lisa Helfend Meyer Lisa Helfend Meyer The firm s four partners are all leaders in the family law community and are frequently called upon by print and media outlets to comment on high-profile marital dissolutions and custody battles in the news. Meyer, the firm s senior partner, has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America for two years in a row, and this year was named The Best Lawyers in America 2012 Lawyer of the Year for Family Law in Los Angeles. Partner Doreen Marie Olson is certified as a Specialist in Family Law by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California and has more than 18 years of experience practicing family law; she works extensively on complex child custody cases. Partner Dana Lowy, meanwhile, has practiced family law for more than 16 years and has unique expertise in mediation and the drafting and negotiating of preand post-nuptial agreements. Partner Felicia Meyers, who has extensive litigation experience, is the former chair of the Family Law Section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association and in 2009 received the President s Award for exemplary service to the Association.

Carter, Amanda H. Marz, John A. Girardi, Amanda L. McClintock, Robert W. Finnerty, Amy F. Solomon, Thomas V. Girardi, Howard B. Miller, John K. Courtney, Neyleen S. Beljajev, Robert M.

Roberts, David R. Lira, V. Andre Rekte F orty-six years ago, as a young lawyer just starting out, Tom Girardi never imagined he would someday be one of the most successful trial attorneys in California history, managing partner of a world-class firm that has impacted the lives of thousands of individuals. All he knew was that he wanted to provide excellent counsel to anyone who had been injured physically or financially, and that he was ready to go to court to help them achieve a measure of justice. The new firm started out small just Girardi and a secretary and $500 was a large award in the early days, as he likes to recall. Today, Girardi Keese now has 30 attorneys at offices in Los Angeles and San Bernardino, including 10 members of the American Board of Trial Advocates, more than any other firm. One of the first to take on mass torts and take them to trial, it is one of a handful of plaintiff firms in the United States that handles cases involving pharmaceutical litigation, product liability, medical malpractice, class actions, intellectual property, antitrust, and business litigation. Virtually all of the firm s cases are referred by other attorneys nationwide, who know they can count on Girardi and his team to represent their clients ably and effectively, even in the toughest cases. Exceptional Resources and Talent We are very lucky to have the very best lawyers, and because of that we get the best cases and enjoy great credibility both with the courts and with other law firms, Girardi says. We have the resources and the passion to give a voice to those who have suffered personal injury and financial harm because of the often-deliberate actions of big companies, from pharmaceutical companies that sell drugs knowing they will do harm, to car manufacturers that don t fix known defects because it will cost them a few dollars per car, large corporations that knowingly allow their employees to be discriminated against and harassed, and insurance companies that delay and deny rightful claims. There has been a moral component to every one of the firm s cases from day one, Girardi says, whether it is representing an individual who broke her ankle after slipping and falling on an icy sidewalk or thousands injured by an unsafe drug. We all learned from Tom that being a trial lawyer is [about being] the ultimate warrior for the voiceless, says partner Amy Solomon. Girardi is especially passionate about the case of a young man a San Francisco Giants baseball fan who suffered a fractured neck after being attacked at Dodger Stadium. The lawsuit, which is currently pending, claims the team s owners cut security at the stadium to support their lavish lifestyle. This is one of the worst things I ve ever seen, Girardi says. Ballparks are where you go to be with your family. Not a bank for an owner who cares nothing about his fans or his team.

7 1126 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA ph: West Hospitality Lane Suite 260 San Bernardino, CA ph: Throughout the years, Girardi Keese has achieved more than $10 billion in verdicts and settlements, including: When you come to work at Girardi Keese, it s a life sentence, Girardi jokes. Nearly all of our attorneys began their careers as law clerks with the firm, and nobody leaves. We re a tightknit, warm operation, with a basic decency and integrity that permeate the entire place. Thomas V. Girardi The first million-dollar medical malpractice verdict in California $633 million for residents of Hinkley, California, who were poisoned by Pacific Gas and Electric in the case made famous in the movie Erin Brockovich $2 billion for California consumers overcharged by Sempra Energy $4.85 billion for heart attacks caused by the arthritis drug Vioxx $545 million in a class action against Farmers Insurance Group and Zurich Financial Services Group $43 million on behalf of a 4-year-old boy who was seriously injured on the Roger Rabbit ride at Disneyland Later this year, Girardi Keese partner Keith Griffin will likely begin a series of trials over Avandia, a diabetes drug that caused an estimated 60,000 to 200,000 heart attacks in the United States between 1999 and Griffin represents 4,200 patients who took Avandia to regulate their blood sugar. The firm is also actively involved in cases involving DePuy metal-on-metal artificial hips, which were recalled because they have been known to damage nearby tissue, and Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills, which can cause heart attacks and strokes in young women. Nothing is more satisfying than helping someone who was hurt because a major pharmaceutical company was more concerned about profits than safety, Griffin says. Girardi Keese may have succeeded beyond Girardi s imagination, but it has never forsaken the little guy. It still represents thousands of individuals. It s really an honor to be a lawyer and help people, Girardi says. That s what I ve tried to do my whole life. Many of the people we represent have been very severely harmed. Some will need medical care for the rest of their lives. If we can help them get the care or support they need and get their lives back to the extent possible and do that in the most professional and ethical way possible then it s been a good day.

8 The law firm of Robinson Calcagnie Robinson Shapiro Davis, Inc., has established a reputation throughout the country as one of the nation s leading products liability, business litigation, and personal injury law firms.

12 Southern California s E D I T I O N The Guide To Southern California s Top Attorneys It s inevitable at some point in your life, you re going to need a lawyer, and you won t always be able to predict when that need will arise. Whether you re starting a business or selling one, getting married or divorced, patenting your invention, litigating a contract, or buying a home there is a talented and highly competent attorney listed in this guide who can help. Perhaps you or a family member is involved in an accident or accused of a crime. These are all serious matters for which you need first-rate legal representation. Southern California s Best Lawyers helps take the mystery out of locating a high-quality advocate to protect you, your family, your business and all other assets. The exceptional attorneys listed in this guide are only those attorneys listed in The Best Lawyers in America. These attorneys were nominated by and voted in by their peers. Lawyers cannot buy their way into this guide. They must earn a spot through exemplary legal work that attracts the notice of their colleagues. To remain on the list, they must be at the top of their game, year after year. Best Lawyers, the leading referral list in the legal profession, and ALM, the nation s leading legal journalism and information company, have teamed up to provide this invaluable resource for readers, whatever your legal needs may be. Lawyers in this guide are arranged by their legal specialty from Administrative Law to Workers Compensation Law which makes it easy to find the professional advice you need. Keep this comprehensive guide available for those times when you need a first-rate advocate to assist you. The lawyers listed in Southern California s Best Lawyers are eager to help. This advertising supplement was created by ALM Media, LLC, and did not involve the reporting or editing staff of the Los Angeles Times. This list is excerpted from the 2011 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the preeminent referral guide to the legal profession in the United States. Published for nearly three decades, Best Lawyers lists attorneys in 82 practice areas, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, who have been chosen through an exhaustive survey in which thousands of the nation s top lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The 2012 edition of Best Lawyers, which will be published in November 2011, is based on more than 3.1 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. The method used to compile Best Lawyers remains unchanged since the first edition was compiled more than 28 years ago. Lawyers are chosen for inclusion based solely on a vote of their peers. Listings cannot be bought, and no purchase is required to be included. In this regard, Best Lawyers remains the gold standard of reliability and integrity in lawyer ratings. The nomination pool for the 2012 edition consisted of all lawyers whose names appeared in the previous edition of Best Lawyers, lawyers who were nominated since the previous survey, and new nominees solicited from listed attorneys. In general, lawyers were asked to vote only on nominees in their own practice area in their own jurisdiction. Lawyers in closely related practice areas were asked to vote across practice areas, as were lawyers in smaller jurisdictions. Where practice areas are national or international in nature, lawyers were asked to vote nationally as well as locally. Voting lawyers were also given an opportunity to offer more detailed comments on nominees. METHODOLOGY Voting lawyers were provided this general guideline for determining if a nominee should be listed: If you had a close friend or relative who needed a real estate lawyer (for example), and you could not handle the case yourself, to whom would you refer them? All votes and comments were solicited with a guarantee of confidentiality a critical factor in the viability and validity of Best Lawyers surveys. To ensure the rigor of the selection process, lawyers were urged to use only their highest standards when voting, and to evaluate each nominee based only on his or her individual merits. The additional comments were used to make more accurate comparisons between voting patterns and weight votes accordingly. Best Lawyers uses various methodological tools to identify and correct for anomalies in both the nomination and voting process. Ultimately, of course, a lawyer s inclusion is based on the subjective judgments of his or her fellow attorneys. While it is true that the lists may at times disproportionately reward visibility or popularity, the breadth of the survey, the candor of the respondents, and the sophistication of the polling methodology largely correct for any biases. For all these reasons, Best Lawyers lists continue to represent the most reliable, accurate and useful guide to the legal profession in the United States.

15 F a r r i s e L a w F i r m A m e s o t h e l i o m a l a w y e r Firm founder Simona Farrise always knew she wanted to be a lawyer. Growing up in a community with no lawyers, I saw the great need of ordinary people. Because of that I ve always wanted to be a lawyer to help people, and I ve stuck to that in my career representing individuals injured by asbestos with mesothelioma against powerful corporations, she says. For nearly two decades, Farrise has been a courageous defender of justice. Long before the television and internet ads of some attorneys, Farrise was in the legal trenches obtaining justice for people dying from mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure that affects 3,500 Americans each year. She has recovered more than $100 million for her dying clients and their families. This firm is a leader in the field of asbestos cancer and mesothelioma cases because of our work ethic and dedication to helping people. Recently, a jury awarded her client, a 59-year old plumber dying from mesothelioma, $9.2 million after finding Union Carbide responsible for exposing him to asbestos at construction sites. Another jury awarded more than $4 million against Ford Motor Company to a client dying of mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos while replacing asbestoscontaining automotive brakes and clutches. Other notable client recoveries include a $40 million recovery for a young mother of two small children who suffered from mesothelioma after she was exposed to asbestos as a child from her parents asbestos-contaminated work clothing. Farrise s fighting spirit is one reason she is among the country s elite injury lawyers. In addition to representing plaintiffs with mesothelioma, she has litigated complex product liability cases involving severe injuries and wrongful deaths. She has championed worker groups and litigated class actions and civil rights cases involving sexual harassment and race and gender discrimination. Sometimes you have to stand up and fight, Farrise says. While the legal profession demands a courteous exchange, too often I see injured people, who do nothing more than seek justice, being fiercely attacked personally by the companies that hurt them in the first place. An activist for women and minorities in the legal profession, Farrise a married mother of three didn t choose to be an activist for professional inclusion; it just happened. As a trial lawyer representing mesothelioma clients, I am a blue flamingo in a sea of penguins, she says, referring to the reality that lawyers representing people with asbestos cancer are typically men. In her own firm, Farrise has tapped the capacity of female lawyers through open work arrangements. She says, It s important to me that women remain in the law doing high-level legal work and not feel forced out if they are also parents and spouses. Technology allows for more flexibility, helping the firm to get amazing talent without compromising quality.

19 A Special Advertising Supplement R i n g l e r & A s s o c i a t e s For 30 years, Jerome Ringler has achieved a record of success in the courtroom that is virtually unrivaled in Southern California and elsewhere. Consider this: Of the 76 cases Ringler has tried to verdict, 21 have resulted in jury awards in the seven- and eight-figure range. Recent results include a class action verdict for $160 million, a misappropriation of trade secrets verdict for $16 million, and a personal injury verdict for $12 million. Illustrative of Ringler s class action capabilities, just recently while he was with Ringler Kearney he achieved class certification in a business fraud class action where the damages exceed $250 million. In the area of class action litigation alone, he has achieved verdicts and settlements that exceed $225 million. He has also served as lead counsel in four major railroad disasters involving commuter lines, two of which were the largest commuter rail disasters in our nation s history at the time they occurred. The combined settlements in these two cases alone approached $250 million. Jerome Ringler has received jury verdicts in excess of $250 million for his clients. Ringler has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for more than a decade and has been included in the Top 100 Southern California Super Lawyers from 2004 to 2007, then again from 2009 to Ringler was named Trial Lawyer of the Year on two occasions, first by the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers Association and later by Verdictum Juris.
