Erin Brockovich is on our team
Erin Brockovich, one of the nation’s leading consumer advocates, has joined the team representing thousands against PG&E over its role in the devastating 2017 and 2018 wildfires across Northern California.
Erin has spent decades fiercely advocating for those who have been harmed by corporate negligence including PG&E. We’re committed to giving our clients the best possible representation and advice throughout this process to ensure that everyone who was impacted by these tragic fires has their questions answered – Erin’s experience and passion will be critical in the weeks ahead.
27 years ago, Erin Brockovich took on PG&E for contaminating groundwater in Hinkley, CA – the case was the subject of the Oscar-winning movie, Erin Brockovich. Since then, she has continued to be an advocate for those harmed by the reckless behavior of corporations and has taken on PG&E in other California communities.
Erin Brockovich has met with survivors of these devastating wildfires and will continue to play an active role in the Mauro Archer and Associates team to ensure PG&E is held accountable.

“This, I think, is one of the most critical times for everyone to come together,” Brockovich said, adding that residents need to stand up for themselves and make sure that they tell their public officials that they want the utility company to be held accountable. – Napa Valley Register, 6/20/18
“It hurts when people email me and they’re confused and they’re lost and they don’t know who to believe,” she said. “I’m not going stand here and push you any one way. You’re always going to make your own choices, but I am going to ask you again to remember — you were here, you know right from wrong. You know what you need and that we need to speak up. I’m not sure why we haven’t done it for so long, but we’re here today.”
Brockovich gained national attention nearly two decades ago, when her work as a legal clerk was portrayed in a blockbuster Hollywood movie about groundwater contamination in the town of Hinkley, California. The 2000 movie, “Erin Brockovich,” dramatized her investigation and legal battle against PG&E, and the subsequent $333 million settlement. – Press-Democrat, 6/19/18
