Slide
We have local support teams

The people that will be helping you on your path to recovery understand what you are going through. This is more than a job to them. They live in the community and are fire survivors themselves.
Slide
We hire the best experts

Whether it is the best fire origin expert in the country, preeminent arborists and experienced insurance content specialists, or public policy advocates, our team is full of people who are the best at what they do.
Slide
We never give up

Two years after the Tubbs Fire, Cal Fire reported in January 2019 that PG&E’s equipment was not responsible. When other law firms took their word and were ready to settle, we didn’t quit. We hired photogrammetry experts and in October 2019 proved that in fact their equipment did cause the fire, helping thousands of families get justice.
Slide
We reform public policy

PG&E was attempting to change California law. Erin and our team went to San Francisco and Sacramento and successfully stopped PG&E from changing a law that would have stripped survivors and victims from getting justice.
Slide
We stand up to the
largest corporations


Our lead lawyer, Mikal Watts, has taken on some of the largest corporations in the country, PG&E, Dow Chemical, Syngenta, Monsanto, and Firestone, amongst others, and has a track record of winning. In 2019, he led the negotiations with PG&E to raise the settlement negotiation from $8.4 billion to $13.5 billion, the largest settlement in bankruptcy history.
