Claremont, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
Three attorneys were recognized as “Rising Stars” by SuperLawyers magazine – Danica Dougherty, Jason Sanchez and Howard Shernoff.
All three attorneys have scored a number of major successes in the past few years, including:
Ms. Dougherty was part of a team that represented a couple in a catastrophic injury lawsuit against CALTRANS (Evans v. State of CA, number CIVVS1002497, in the Superior Court of the State of California for the county of San Bernardino). The jury awarded the couple $31.5 million, one of the ten largest verdicts in California for 2012. She also was part of the trial team that obtained a $15 million jury verdict in a 2013 wrongful death case in a Bakersfield hit-and-run (Estate of Paregien v Oliva, Case No. S-1500-CV-272703 DRL, Superior Court of Kern County).
Mr. Sanchez was co-trial counsel in a case which resulted in a $2.3 million verdict in 2013 on behalf of a 26-year Monterey Park Police Sergeant, who suffered traumatic injuries after being struck by a trash truck that pulled away from the curb and out into oncoming traffic (Scott and Stacy Wiese v Athens Disposal Company, GC044216, Los Angeles Superior Court).
Mr. Shernoff represented the widow of a man killed in the largest mass-murder in Orange County history (Fannin v Employers Mutual Casualty Case No. 00603260, Orange County Superior Court). National and local media outlets covered the case, which resulted in a settlement. He has also helped secure millions of dollars in settlements on behalf of clients in the last few years in cases involving auto insurance, life insurance and health insurance bad faith claims.
Ms. Dougherty and Mr. Shernoff have been Rising Stars in 2012, 2013 and 2014. This is the first year Mr. Sanchez has made the list.
