Partners Matthew McNicholas and Patrick McNicholas were selected for inclusion in Los Angeles Times’ Consumer Attorneys of Southern California 2023 list, recognizing the deep impact their work has had on law, policy and public safety.
Noted for his representation of police officers, firefighters and other first responders, Matthew holds unethical employers accountable for misconduct, corruption and discrimination, and creates real change in these departments. He has obtained $60+ million against California agencies, and most recently, achieved a $10.1 million verdict for an LAPD captain who was retaliated and discriminated against. Matt also secured a $4.37 million verdict for a 20-year LAPD veteran who was the victim of a workplace retaliation campaign that prevented him from advancing in his career.
Patrick was lauded for achieving more than $1 billion in mass tort resolutions in the past two years. His efforts held massive utility companies, retailers and manufacturers accountable, and improved the lives of millions of Californians. As a result of Patrick’s tireless efforts, these companies have enacted changes that will protect millions of people through critical safety enhancements.
