Jon C. Teller, Esq., is a Senior Partner and an award-winning Senior Trial Attorney at Wilshire Law Firm. Going toe-to-toe with some of the largest insurance companies in the world, such as Allstate, Geico, Progressive, AAA, and State Farm, Jon has a proven track record of obtaining righteous verdicts of millions of dollars for his deserving clients. Jon’s hard-working demeanor has helped his clients obtain 20 of the Top 50 Personal Injury Settlements in California in 2020, making up 40% of the list by TopVerdict.com.
Jon’s work has led to world-changing results, producing over $115,000,000 for his deserving clients. In 2022, Jon won a $35 million+ verdict for an 81-year-old man who was rear-ended on the freeway by a tractor trailer. In 2019, after winning the liability phase of the trial that found the defendant School District 100% negligent, the case was resolved for a landmark recovery of more than $28,000,000. The result also required the School District to make changes to its policies to ensure the safety of other students and to prevent injuries in the future.
Jon’s determination to fight for individuals against huge insurance corporations led to his nomination for Attorney of the Year by Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) in 2020. In 2021, the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) nominated Jon as Trial Lawyer of the Year.
Insurance companies with deep pockets often hire “experts” to confuse and trick the jury, attempting to give victims of tragic incidents significantly less money than they deserve. As a result, many injured parties are left with little to no money for the medical expenses they face. Jon stands up for the little guy, fighting vigorously for the rights of his clients while pursuing the justice and financial compensation they deserve.
As a former defense attorney, Jon knows how his opponents and insurance companies operate and uses this experience to out-strategize them, obtaining incredible results for his clients. His strategic, client-first approach centers on out-preparing, out-thinking, and out-working his opponents.
Other recent cases have led to results of $4,500,000, $3,650,000, $3,550,000, $2,350,000, $2,265,000, $2,025,000 and $1,625,000 for Jon and his deserving clients. Jon has also appeared at multiple week-long Arbitrations against Uber and LYFT insurance companies which resulted in damage awards of over $1,000,000 each.
Jon has been recognized as an outstanding advocate for his clients year after year by the legal community. Jon has been named a 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 SuperLawyers Rising Star and as “Best Lawyers Ones to Watch” in 2021 and 2022.
Jon attributes his success to his desire to support and advocate for those in need. He spends quality time building a relationship of trust and respect with each of his clients and understands the trauma his clients and their families go through. Jon’s zealous advocacy leads his clients to obtain the best results possible.
Jon’s advocacy for the community extends beyond the courtroom. He serves as an Honorary Board Member for the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC). In addition, Jon donates both his time and money to several charitable causes, including various school scholarship funds and organizations that help those in need of education, food, school supplies, toys for children, and medical treatment needs.
