GBW Honored for One of Year’s Biggest Verdicts and Ranked a Top Law Firm


SANTA MONICA, Ca. (July 13, 2015) – The San Francisco Recorder announced today it’s honoring the Santa Monica law firm, Greene Broillet & Wheeler LLP as one of California’s Top Ranked Law Firms. The publication also recognized the firm for winning one of the 25 biggest verdicts of 2014 in the case of McLaughlin v. Mountain High LLC.

The Recorder published a special supplement recognizing the state’s most successful law firms in terms of courtroom excellence and commitment to clients.

The ranking is based on the Martindale-Hubbell Peer-Review Ratings methodology that involves researching a comprehensive database of lawyers and firms to identify the lawyers that have demonstrated the highest level of ethical standards and legal ability.

In December 2014, GBW obtained a $22 million verdict, which was reduced by a comparative fault in a personal injury lawsuit involving a skier. Attorneys Bruce Broillet and Scott Carr achieved that victory against a ski resort for their client’s injuries, a rare achievement under California law. Leslie McLaughlin suffered permanent paralysis in a skiing accident on a green (easy) run at Mountain High after she encountered an unmarked staging area on the run.

Greene Broillet & Wheeler LLP is a plaintiffs firm dedicated to fighting for the rights of injured consumers across California to improve public safety and demand accountability.
