Wilshire Law Firm Honored with Featured Verdict in VerdictSearch
LOS ANGELES, CA. December 19, 2018—Wilshire Law Firm is proud to announce that VerdictSearch, a leading source of verdict and settlement news from around the country, recently selected a case won by Wilshire Law Firm trial attorneys Colin Jones, Daniel Miller, and Bobby Saadian as a “Featured Verdict” in their national publication. This motor vehicle accident case was hand-selected as particularly noteworthy in the personal injury field by VerdictSearch’s expert team of editors. In January 2018, Wilshire Law Firm obtained a $1 million jury verdict on behalf of Gustavo Godoy Zepeda, a passenger in a car who was injured when a tractor-trailer rear-ended the vehicle he was traveling in on southbound U.S. Route 101 in February 2014. As a result of the accident, Mr. Zepeda sustained spinal strains and protruding discs (among other injuries). After conservative chiropractic care and physical therapy resulted in minimal improvement, Mr. Zepeda underwent lumbar spinal fusion surgery in October of 2015. Despite the surgery, Mr. Zepeda has continued to experience pain in his neck due to the accident. The medical care for his injuries will likely continue for years, and he may never fully recover. To convey the gravity of Mr. Zepeda’s injuries to the jury, leading trial attorney Colin Jones utilized cutting-edge medical illustration technology. “Our clients all have a story to tell,” says Jones, “and sometimes the best way to tell a story is to show it to your audience. Making use of advanced courtroom technology allows us to bring the jury into the lives of our clients and helps the jury fully understand how a victim’s life is affected by an accident.” Thanks to the determined efforts of Jones and everyone at Wilshire Law Firm, this outstanding verdict ensures that Mr. Zepeda will be justly compensated for past and future medical costs, along with past and future pain and suffering brought about by his unfortunate accident. Founded in 2007 by Bobby Saadian, Esq., Wilshire Law Firm has worked tirelessly for 11 years to stand up for the rights of personal injury victims. To date, our award-winning legal team has recovered over $350 million for victims and their families, taking care of them every step of the way.

Wilshire Law Firm Reaches New $3.25 Million Settlement
LOS ANGELES, CA. December 19, 2018 – Wilshire Law Firm trial attorneys Colin Jones and Bobby Saadian have announced that they have reached an agreement for a $3.25 million settlement on behalf of client Oralia Michel. Mrs. Michel was the victim of a car accident in Inglewood, CA in August of 2016, where she suffered several injuries that continue to affect her. While traveling south along Interstate 405, Mrs. Michel stopped due to traffic ahead. As she did, the defendant, an employee for J Deluca Fish Company, failed to slow down, striking Mrs. Michel’s vehicle from the rear. Because the defendant’s negligent actions occurred while they were on the job, both the defendant and their employer were found liable. Mrs. Michel’s road to recovery has been a struggle. Testing revealed that, in addition to injuries to her cervical and lumbar spine, she also suffered a traumatic brain injury. After returning to work for a brief time, the pain in her back, left side, and left arm became so overwhelming that Mrs. Michel had no choice but to stop working. After physical therapy failed to improve her position, she was forced to undergo cervical spinal fusion surgery in February 2018. Even after surgery, the injuries suffered by Mrs. Michel are still affecting her life today. As a mother of two young boys, she is no longer able to play with them as she once did because of her injuries. It is also extremely difficult for her to care for her autistic son, robbing her of the joy of parenting. With this exceptional settlement, Mrs. Michel and her family can finally move forward from this awful incident. “Being in a car accident takes away a victim’s peace of mind—our job as personal injury lawyers is to help them gain it back,” said lead trial attorney Colin Jones. “While no amount can ever undo the damage of an accident, our legal team works tirelessly to make our client’s voices heard and deliver the best results.” Located in Los Angeles, the skilled attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm understand the hardships that accident victims experience. Our award-winning legal team is here to serve personal injury victims throughout Southern California and help them through every step of the recovery process.

Wilshire Law Firm Secures a $4.75 Million Settlement
LOS ANGELES, CA. November 20, 2018 – Wilshire Law Firm trial attorneys Colin Jones, Daniel Miller and Bobby Saadian are proud to announce they have secured a $4.75 million settlement on behalf of clients Michael and Marlena Moore. This settlement arises from an automobile collision that occurred in August of 2016 in Paso Robles California. On that day, the defendant, an employee of Isco Industries, was driving his work truck when he failed to yield at a stop sign. At the same time, Mr. and Mrs. Moore were travelling in the same area as the defendant. As a result of the defendant’s negligent failure to stop, a serious collision occurred. The plaintiffs were shaken up at the scene but did not immediately seek medical care. As time passed, they realized the injuries were more severely than initially thought and sought treatment from various medical providers. Tests revealed that both Mr. and Mrs. Moore ultimately suffered neck and back injuries, including several herniated discs. Due to ongoing pain and mobility issues, they each underwent spinal fusion and decompression surgeries. In addition, Mr. Moore had a spinal cord stimulator implanted in an effort to reduce his pain. Although the accident happened over two years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Moore’s lives were severely altered by this event. Previously in good health, they require ongoing medical treatment, pain management and therapy to this day. “Our job as trial lawyers is to be storytellers. That doesn’t happen by reciting legal theory or showing jurors 10,000 pages of medical records. It happens by bringing jurors into the lives of the client’s we represent — showing not just the struggles but the triumphs that follow a serious injury. When we present our client’s story in a way that touches the hearts and minds of the jurors, there is no option but to compensate them the fair value of the claim,” says lead trial attorney Colin Jones. Also notable about this case is Wilshire Law Firm’s successful use of cutting-edge technology for medical illustrations. By utilizing courtroom animation, attorney Colin Jones was able to present precise details of the spinal surgeries to defense counsel and mediator, which highlighted the severity of the injuries. These medical animations were a key component in helping to finalize this outstanding settlement even before the presentation of any expert witnesses. Located in Los Angeles, Wilshire Law Firm has been successfully representing personal injury and accident victims for over 11 years. Our attorneys have received many prestigious awards and accolades from industry peers and consumers.

Announcing the Wilshire Law Firm Legal Scholar Award Recipient
California based personal injury firm Wilshire Law Firm is pleased to announce that the recipient of its 2018 Legal Scholar award is first-year Berkeley Law school student Ashley Johnson. Ashley was chosen on the strength of her outstanding academic record, commitment to community service and thought-provoking essay championing victim’s rights. She will receive a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 towards her tuition. The Legal Scholar Award scholarship was born of the belief that financial concerns should never get in the way of an outstanding young person interested in pursuing a career in law. To that end, Wilshire Law Firm’s Founding Partner Bobby Saadian established this scholarship to help the next generation achieve their goal of becoming an attorney. While there were many worthy entries, Ashley’s application stood out for her desire to pursue a law degree in order to effect change on behalf of sexual assault victims through the legal system. As Ashley herself put it, “I am truly honored to be the recipient of the 2018 Wilshire Law Firm’s Legal Scholars Award. I am especially grateful to Mr. Saadian and his team for selecting me for this prestigious scholarship. I am in my first year at Berkeley Law, and my goal is to become an attorney advocating for changes in laws and public policies regarding sexual assault and victims’ rights. Receiving this scholarship sheds light on a problem so often ignored and puts a strong voice and financial backing behind the belief that the situation is dire but not hopeless — a heartening and much needed support for victims of assault.” In spite of her heavy workload as both an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis and now Berkeley Law, Ashley has also found time to volunteer at Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) where she mentored middle school girls and CoachArt, an organization that works to improve the lives of chronically ill children through art and athletics. About Wilshire Law Firm: Wilshire Law Firm has been meeting the needs of injury and discrimination victims for eleven years and counting. The firm’s founder, Bobby Saadian established the Legal Scholar award to help the next generation of attorneys achieve their dreams and effect positive changes in society as a whole.
