McNicholas & McNicholas Named as Attorney at Law’s Firm of the Month
Attorney at Law magazine features family-owned McNicholas & McNicholas as law firm of the month. The article “Three Generations Building Trust” highlights the firm’s impeccable legal reputation and community service record. “We’ve developed a winning reputation through our case results,” said Partner Patrick McNicholas. “When you look at the civil and legal process as being a collaborative one, it tends to produce a better and more efficient result,” he said.
That efficiency translates to the firm’s winning reputation, having tried more than 150 trials to verdict and securing more than $600 million in results on behalf of clients. Since being founded in 1993, the firm has expanded to include 13 attorneys with clients throughout the United States.
Patrick has more than 25 years’ experience and is behind some of the most challenging cases from horrific plane crashes to deadly school shootings to repulsive child sexual abuse cases. His brother Matthew represents victims in a range of areas, including catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and employment law. More specifically, Matt has recovered more than $50 million on behalf of police officers and firefighters in cases involving racial and sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.
Their father, John, has more than 50 years of experience representing plaintiffs. One of John’s most rewarding experiences was representing the families who perished in the Paris air crash. “That’s when I realized how powerful, important, and emotionally satisfying the practice of law can be,” Patrick said.
“Our goal is to be the best plaintiff lawyers in Los Angeles. We want to deliver the best possible legal product while being respectful of our clients, our opponents and the process. We’re not only trial attorneys; we’re advocates,” Pat comments.
McNicholas & McNicholas prides themselves on three generations of not only legal service, but community outreach as well. They are active in nearly a dozen local charities, ranging from the Loyola Law School Trial Advocacy Scholarship to a non-profit Patrick co-founded, called Urban Compass, which supports at-risk youth in Watts.
