February 6, 2018 Press Releases

SAN DIEGO (January 23, 2018) CaseyGerry, San Diego’s oldest plaintiffs law firm, has added two new associate attorneys – Alyssa Williams and Jillian F. Hayes – to its growing legal team.

A cum laude graduate of University of San Diego (USD) School of Law, Williams interned at the USD Veterans Legal Clinic, worked at the mediation program for small claims at San Diego Superior Court and served as a legal extern for former San Diego Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Prager. At CaseyGerry, she will focus on complex litigation, including class actions and mass torts, working closely with partner Gayle Blatt.

Hayes previously focused her practice on insurance defense as an attorney at Taylor Anderson LLP. She earned her J.D. from California Western School of Law, where she served as an instructor for the school’s Street Law program — helping high-risk youth throughout San Diego understand their legal and constitutional rights. Now concentrating her practice on serious personal injury, she will work closely with partner Frederick Schenk.

“Both Alyssa and Jillian are dedicated and hardworking attorneys, and we are thrilled to have them on our legal team,” said David S. Casey Jr., CaseyGerry’s managing partner. “Their talents will be key as we continue to grow our practice – locally, regionally and nationally.”

Williams has a bachelor’s degree in sociology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, while Hayes earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Arizona State University. Hayes is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association (SDCBA), the American Association for Justice, the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and Lawyers Club of San Diego. Williams is also affiliated with the SDCBA and volunteers at the San Diego Legal Aid Society in her spare time.
