The 2022 Top 20 California Trial Lawyers have been revealed!

Every year, Benchmark California identifies the Top 20 California trial lawyers. This elite group consists of partners who have been venerated by peers and clients as being the best in breed at the nuanced practice of trial law within the state of California, with this acclaim supported by respresentative work (public or confidential) to exemplify this status. We have made every effort to keep the list fair, balanced and diverse, from the perspective of practices and geography. The partners below were recipients of this honorary designation through Benchmark Litigation's USA & California 2022 research cycle.

Congratualtions to all the honorees!


A special thank you to the below partners and firms for generously supporting our 2022 publication!
