SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Longtime CaseyGerry partner Robert J. Francavilla was recently named one of SD Metro Magazine’s top 25 attorneys for 2013.

Francavilla has received numerous accolades throughout his career and has been honored by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego with the “Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award” on five occasions. Additionally, he has been selected by his peers for inclusion in “Best Lawyers in America” (2008-2013), and “Super Lawyers” magazine has listed him as one San Diego’s outstanding personal injury lawyers for the last six years, also naming him as one of the top 50 lawyers in San Diego. He was also named one of San Diego Magazine’s 50 people to Watch for 2012.
