SAN DIEGO (August 26, 2014)
Robert J. Francavilla Named Lawyer of the Year
CaseyGerry partner Robert J. Francavilla has been selected by his peers as a San Diego”Lawyer of the Year” for Products Liability Litigation/Plaintiffs in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, a prestigious national ranking of attorneys selected through an exhaustive annual peer-review process.
According to Best Lawyers, “Lawyer of the Year” honorees are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. The honor reflects the highest level of respect a lawyer has earned among other attorneys based on his or her abilities, professionalism and integrity.
“Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as a Lawyer of the Year,” said CaseyGerry’s managing partner David S. Casey, Jr. “The fact that the honor is given by peers makes this accolade especially significant. We are quite proud of Robert and his achievement.”
Five CaseyGerry partners – Gayle M. Blatt, David S. Casey, Jr., Francavilla, Thomas D. Penfield and Frederick Schenk – are all featured in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and most respected peer-reviewed publication in the legal profession. This marks the ninth consecutive year Casey and Schenk have been featured, the seventh year for Francavilla, the fifth year for Penfield, and the fourth year Blatt has been recognized.
Because of the exacting methodology involved, the annual ranking is regarded as the industry’s definitive guide to legal excellence. For three decades, Best Lawyers has become a resource for both lawyers and clients looking for top legal talent.
CaseyGerry specializes in serious personal injury, product liability and mass tort/class action litigation – firm partners included in the publication each have extensive experience in all aspects of consumer law:
