With more than 65 years of combined personal injury litigation experience, Easton & Easton — comprised of Doug and his sons Brian, Matt, and Travis — only represents those that have been seriously injured or suffered the wrongful death of a loved one. With more than 40 years of experience, Doug Easton has been chosen to Southern California Super Lawyers continually since 2009, Best Lawyers in America since 2007, and National Trial Lawyers Top 100 for California since 2012. Doug has also held Martindale-Hubbell’s highest AV rating for legal skill and ethical conduct for over 30 years.
Following in Doug’s footsteps, Brian Easton is also a National Trial Lawyers Top 100 for California and Matt Easton has been selected to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 in California, as well as Southern California Super Lawyers – Rising Stars. With this kind of pedigree, helping those who have suffered tragedy through the negligence of another is a life-long familial passion for the Eastons, and each case is personal to them.
In a recent and particularly heart-wrenching case, Easton & Easton 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, the Eastons found in this family’s history a moving 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. 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.
