Eric Gibbs Selected to Daily Journal’s “Top Plaintiff Lawyers for 2019”
June 24, 2019
Gibbs Law Group is excited to announce that Eric Gibbs, has been named to the Daily Journal‘s list of “Top Plaintiff Lawyers for 2019.” This award honors attorneys who “use their legal skills to forge real and lasting change.” The Daily Journal recognized Eric for his involvement in several notable cases over the past few years.
The Daily Journal feature mentioned Eric’s leadership role in the Anthem data breach case, as well as litigation on behalf of those affected by the 2018 Camp Fire. The feature also quoted Eric in his idea of what makes a good plaintiff’s attorney:
It’s easy to point to numbers and focus on eye-popping settlements, but some of our best work isn’t in the 9-figure settlement range. It’s more about every detail- every piece of relief there is and responding to a grievance that plaintiffs brought, and putting in the time and effort to figure out what the class cares about, so that at the end they say, ‘That’s great, that really helps me.’
Established in 1893, the Daily Journal is known as one of the foremost legal publications in the U.S. The publication is widely respected by California attorneys in all practice areas for its extensive coverage and profiles of judges, appellate decisions, and other notable legal information.
