With more than 65 years of combined personal injury litigation experience, Easton & Easton’s attorneys have helped thousands of injured people maximize their meritorious claims. Doug Easton and his sons, Brian and Matt, only represent those that have been seriously injured or suffered the wrongful death of a loved one. Helping those who have suffered such tragedies through the negligence of another is a life-long, personal, and familial passion for the Eastons, and each case is dear to their hearts.
A Tradition of Exceptional Results
In a recent and particularly heart-wrenching case, the firm acquired $2.75 million for the wrongful death of a 55-year-old man with no wife or children, just two surviving parents in their ‘80s. While the defendants’ insurance carrier initially expected to pay a minimal amount because of the advanced age of the decedent and his parents, Easton & Easton found in this family’s history a poignant story of love and devotion between the parents and their son that they used to compel the insurance company to seek an early Mediation and ultimately pay $2.75 million to resolve the case. The settlement amount far exceeded the clients’ wildest dreams and spared them the stress of a lengthy trial. These exceptional results have since been recognized by the legal community at large — Doug, Brian, and Matt Easton each received Commendations from the City of Lancaster for their work in this case and the result was chosen as Number 18 in California’s Top Million Dollar Settlements for 2013.
A Pillar Among the Community
Due to the respect they have earned among their peers in the legal community while standing up for the rights of victims like these 80-year-old parents, Easton & Easton is listed by U.S. News & World Report as one of Southern California’s Best Law Firms. With more than 43 years of experience, Doug Easton has been named a Southern California Super Lawyer continually since 2009 and a Best Lawyer in America since 2007, and has held Martindale-Hubble’s highest A-V rating for legal skill and ethical conduct for 30 years.
