SAN DIEGO (November 29, 2017) CaseyGerry, a San Diego based plaintiffs law firm, has announced the addition of Meagan L. Verschueren as its newest associate attorney.
Verschueren started out as a CaseyGerry legal clerk in 2015 and also worked for the firm as a contract attorney. In her new role as a full time associate, Verschueren will work closely with partner Robert J. Francavilla on cases in the areas of catastrophic personal injury, product and premises liability, aviation litigation, wrongful death, elder abuse litigation, and more.
Since joining the CaseyGerry team, Verschueren has participated in all aspects of litigation – from client intake meetings to trial. She has been instrumental in resolving catastrophic personal injury cases involving severe burns, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and permanent disabilities–obtaining millions of dollars for her clients.
Before joining CaseyGerry, she worked as a law clerk at San Diego firms Schonfeld & Bertsche, LLP. and Webb & Bordson, APC.
Verschueren earned her J.D., cum laude, from California Western School of Law in San Diego where she competed as a trial team member and earned the Distinguished Advocate Award. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from University of Tampa.
She is currently a Board Member of Tom Homann LGBT Law Association, and is the Chair of the Membership Committee, the Vice-Chair of the Dinner Committee, and participates in its law student mentor-mentee program.

She is a member of Consumers Attorneys of California, Consumers Attorneys of San Diego, American Association for Justice, and the National LGBT Bar Association.
In her spare time, she volunteers as a mock judge for the San Diego County High School Annual Mock Trial Competition and for events promoting Voices for Children and STAR/PAL.
“It’s been a real pleasure working with Meagan since she joined the firm,” said Francavilla. “This promotion is well deserved. She’s been a true asset to our team, and I look forward to continuing our work together.”
