Taking on PG&E requires an experienced team
On the evening of October 8, 2017, our lives were changed forever when devastating fires began burning out of control in our communities. Since the fires, our team of local attorneys and experience professionals has been working with thousands of survivors to give them the representation they deserve.
We believe that giving you the representation you deserve requires a team of local professionals who live and work in the communities impacted by the fires and are deeply concerned about this recovery. To provide our clients with the best possible legal representation, we’ve also partnered with an experienced team of attorneys with the resources and long record of taking on major cases against powerful interests – and successfully holding them accountable.
Evidence continues to show PG&E equipment was responsible for igniting many of the October wildfires. Already, CalFire has concluded their equipment started 16 of the October fires and additional reports are still pending. Taking action against PG&E is not only an opportunity to make survivors of these fires financially whole, it’s an opportunity to change corporate behavior.
Nobody knows more about the need to change PG&E’s behavior than Erin Brockovich, one of our nation’s leading consumer advocates. That’s why Erin is helping us hold PG&E accountable for the October wildfires. If you’ve seen the 2000 film Erin Brockovich, you know that Erin has spent her career fighting for those who have been harmed by corporate negligence. As documented in the film, Erin successfully took on PG&E for releasing toxic chemicals into California’s water supply.
