Mr. Green has dedicated his legal career to helping people who are injured or disabled. Mr. Green grew up in southern California, where he started from very modest beginnings. Through hard work and by earning scholarships, he was able to graduate with honors from College and Law School.
In College, Mr. Green earned a double major in Legal Studies and Philosophy. In Law School at the prestigious University of California, Hastings College of the Law, Mr. Green, earned writing awards such as “Best Brief” in a class of over 500 law students, and was selected to represent the entire Law School in the “National Moot Court Competition.”
Since beginning his practice many years ago, Mr. Green has made a career of championing the rights of the most vulnerable members of society – injury victims and disabled people – against the most powerful corporations, government entities, and insurance companies. Where most attorneys take on “a case,” Mr. Green frequently comments that he takes on clients and their cause. And while Mr. Green is always focused on the primary goal of getting the maximum possible recovery for the firm’s clients, he also believes that the work the firm does holding government entities and corporations liable betters society by making streets safer, products much less dangerous and generally holding the powerful accountable when they cause harm.
Mr. Green’s accomplishments during more than two decades of practice include significant jury trial experience, jury verdicts worth many millions of dollars, and a tremendous number of very large, out of court settlements of serious personal injury, wrongful death, and insurance cases. Mr. Green’s philosophy regarding litigation can be summed up as this: “If you fully prepare a case for trial, you are much less likely to ever need to go to trial to get your client full value for their case.” This played out most recently when Mr. Green was able obtain millions of dollars in settlement for a traumatic brain injury victim by fully preparing a case from the very outset.
