Our Firm History

A Track Record of Success in Catastrophic Injury Cases

For over two decades, Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP has built its practice and reputation on the belief that a client’s rights – and their financial recovery – are maximized by showing a willingness to take their case to a jury. For the clients we represent, our Los Angeles attorneys have achieved a phenomenal success rate in jury trials and settlements. All of our attorneys have obtained million-dollar verdicts and settlements.

Tough Cases, Big Results

Since its inception in 1973, our Los Angeles law firm has developed a reputation for taking on the toughest cases involving the most catastrophic and serious injuries. During the early days of the firm, we even earned the nickname “the patron saint of lost causes.” Ordinary people with bad injuries and difficult liability actions have often sought our help for their extraordinary, life-altering situations. Where other lawyers hesitated, we jumped in. 

Today, our ability to prevail in the courtroom is evident in our consistent success in winning multi- million dollar verdicts and settlements. Using customized evidentiary techniques and the latest in courtroom technology, we have stood up to countless major corporations and held them accountable for failing to consider the safety and wellbeing of others.

In one of our most noteworthy cases, Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP put automotive giant General Motors on trial, on behalf of several passengers severely burned by defective gas tanks. The jury delivered a landmark $4.9 billion verdict. It is amongst the largest product liability jury awards in American judicial history.

Setting New Standards for Presenting Courtroom Evidence

At our Los Angeles firm, we have access to state-of-the-art resources that other firms do not. With access to a secured evidence warehouse, we can create everything from sophisticated life-size models to engaging multimedia presentations. With these demonstrative evidence techniques, our in-house experts and investigators can bring critical items right into the courtroom for juries and judges to experience firsthand, striking a deeper connection to our cases.

To prepare for trial and settlement conferences, we also conduct mock trials and focus groups. In this setting, twelve sample jurors hear abbreviated versions of an actual case and we learn from their reactions. This has proven to be a valuable tool that improves our success rate at the settlement table or at trial.

Call the “Lawyer’s Lawyers”

There’s a reason our attorneys at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP are often called the “lawyer’s lawyers.” As leaders and active members of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, Consumers Attorneys of California, Association of Business Trial Lawyers, Western Trial Lawyers Association and other legal organizations, we continually give back to the community and profession.

Our partners and associates are frequent speakers, authors and strong supporters of high professional standards and ethics. Our attorneys continue to fight for stricter product safety standards and for meaningful measures that hold companies accountable when they place profits over the public’s safety.
