LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 19, 2019
A leading legal newspaper recently profiled Bienert | Katzman PC’s trial prowess and national successes. In a feature article, the Los Angeles Daily Journal stated, “From intricate bankruptcies to complex civil cases and high-profile criminal defense, Bienert | Katzman PC’s 13 attorneys share a broad range of litigation skills that can make any case ripe for trial.”
James Riddet, who is with the firm, been practicing law for more than 50 years, and successfully tried numerous white-collar cases in federal court, said: “This is a trial firm. We try cases, and every single attorney – and there’s some real talent in this firm – is an experienced trial lawyer.”
The firm was founded by two former federal prosecutors who met in the U.S Attorney’s Office of the Central District of California. The firm’s national reach is bolstered by the decades of courtroom experience its founders and colleagues bring to bear.
The firm has had numerous large and high profile cases across the country including: the “Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal in Boston; a health care fraud case in Puerto Rico; a defense verdict in favor of a prominent NBA star in a personal injury jury trial in Los Angeles; a $280 million settlement against drug maker Celgene just before trial in a whistleblower case; a $4.4 million jury verdict in favor of an electrician burned on an oil rig off the Ventura coast; and the successful resolution of a criminal tax case in Alaska where the judge found “flagrant government misconduct” by the prosecutors.
Steve Katzman leads the firm’s nationally recognized bankruptcy practice. In addition to working as an AUSA, Katzman served as United States Trustee for five federal judicial districts, and has handled many national cases including the San Bernardino municipal bankruptcy and the Madoff Ponzi scheme. Former United States Attorney and judge Debra Wong Yang, now a partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, noted that “[a] boutique firm with someone of Katzman’s bankruptcy background is rare.”
