Kevin R. Boyle

Kevin Boyle is our exclusively recommended Personal Injury Law expert in California on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Kevin directly using the contact details listed above.

Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi LLP founding partner Kevin specialises in resolving large, high-profile plaintiffs cases by trial or settlement. As an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, he represents a number of clients in a wide range of matters — from wrongful death to catastrophic personal injuries to victims of sexual assault and abuse to serious fraud.  The common thread of all of Kevin’s cases is that he represents people who have been severely wronged by powerful entities, and he seeks to not only hold those entities financially responsible, but to force them to change their ways.

Among his notable cases, Kevin represented two United States soldiers who were severely injured in a helicopter crash in Iraq in a case against the helicopter manufacturer who asserted that it was immune from liability because it was a government contractor — obtaining the largest known settlement in a case of this kind.

In the highly publicised Dominguez v. City and County of San Francisco, Kevin served as co-trial counsel in the case which resulted in a record jury verdict for the wrongful death of a 4-year-old girl.  The city and county of San Francisco completely denied responsibility but the jury found it to be 100% responsible. The case was recognised by numerous publications as one of the Top 10 Verdicts in America.

In another ground-breaking case, Kevin represented journalists whose personal phone records were improperly examined in an illegal investigation ordered directly by the Board of Directors of the Hewlett Packard corporation.  The case resolved in a confidential settlement that included monetary and non-monetary components.

He also represented numerous victims of the San Bruno gas explosion, caused by faulty gas pipes that were the responsibility of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), and was involved in spearheading the effort that resulted in the court’s decision that the issue of punitive damages against PG&E would go to the jury.  The resolution of the case involved both monetary and non-monetary components to prevent such a disaster from happening again.

Additionally, Kevin served as co-trial counsel in Yoon v. United States, a case involving a United States military fighter jet that crashed into a family home after the pilot had safely ejected. The jet had been maintained improperly and the case resulted in the jury delivering the largest known wrongful death verdict against the United States military.

Kevin holds an A-V ranking from the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest ranking a lawyer can attain in terms of ability and ethics. He has been recognised by the Daily Journal as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California, named among Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Attorneys, and he has been profiled as one of The Best Lawyers in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Times.

Geoffrey Fieger

Geoffrey Fieger is our exclusively recommended Personal Injury Law expert in Michigan on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Geoffrey directly using the contact details listed above.

Michigan is a state in the Great Lakes region of the upper Midwestern United States. Its name derives from a gallicized variant of the original Ojibwe word ᒥᓯᑲᒥ, meaning ‘large water’ or ‘large lake’.

Practicing for nearly 40 years, Geoffrey is a veteran of the legal battlefield. His command of the law, both as a trial litigator and as a scholar, has made him one of the most sought-after attorneys in the nation. Though he has always practiced from his firm’s home in Southfield, Michigan, he is known all over the world for his charismatic trial presence and his refusal to back down from the battles that matter. In fact, the Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University named The Geoffrey Fieger Trial Practice Institute in his honour.

Geoffrey’s legal skill is uniquely well-known, even for a lawyer as renowned as him—he has been repeatedly featured on MSNBC, CNN, Fox, and various other networks to provide legal insight and commentary throughout his career. He has had his own program on CBS radio titled “Fieger Time,” and was featured on Fox’s live court program “Power of Attorney.” Geoffrey has also frequently been in the news as a subject, as he is often called upon to represent high-profile cases on behalf of those facing impossible odds.

In one of his notable cases, Attorney Fieger was able to secure acquittals for every one of Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s assisted-suicide trials in which he represented the doctor.

Lawyers who have faced him in court know him to be incredibly well-prepared, knowledgeable, and a force to be reckoned with—ultimately, he’s the attorney that other lawyers would want on their side.

When Geoffrey was facing his own major battle against the United States government, he and the legendary Attorney Gerry Spence fought against charges that Geoffrey had made illegal campaign contributions to then-Senator John Edwards. Their work ensured that he was acquitted on all counts.

Jason A. Neville

Jason Neville is our exclusively recommended Personal Injury Law expert in Wyoming on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Jason directly using the contact details listed above.

Born and raised in Wyoming, Jason Neville grew up the son of one of Wyoming’s most respected defence trial lawyers. Jason spent 19 years defending doctors, product manufacturers, oil and gas companies and corporate defendants in injury cases with Wyoming’s premier defence firm.

He earned a reputation as a tenacious and respected advocate, able to master the complex medicine and science behind catastrophic accidents and injuries; distilling the facts into a simple and compelling story for his clients and winning with juries.

Jason became disenchanted defending insurance companies and businesses against injured plaintiffs; using his talents against those injured by someone’s negligence. He repeatedly saw good cases sold out cheap because the plaintiff’s lawyer wasn’t willing to try the case or unable effectively to tell their client’s story; a grave disservice to the injured family and a win for the insurance company.

Jason brings his considerable knowledge of the inner workings of insurance and corporate defence to fight for the injured. He keenly understands defence tactics; how they build their case, their weaknesses and how to leverage these to maximise case value and win. Jason’s varied trial experience spans complex medical negligence, carbon monoxide injuries, insurance bad faith, oil field accidents, traumatic brain injuries and high stakes corporate disputes. Jason continues to accept select corporate cases on behalf of small companies unfairly stifled and bullied by big business.

He earned a BA in English with a minor in American Indian Studies from the University of Wyoming in 1997; and his JD from the University of Wyoming in 2000.
