Established in 1984, the civil litigation firm of Callahan & Blaine concentrated on commercial and corporate trial work until we started taking personal injury cases approximately 20 years ago. Since that time, our lawyers have obtained two of the largest personal injury settlements in United States history, and we have won many multimillion-dollar recoveries for personal injury and wrongful death clients. Contact our office in Orange County to learn how our litigation methods have made us California’s premier litigation firm for personal injury claims.
Callahan & Blaine has been built to achieve outstanding results in civil litigation, no matter what the issue or dispute might happen to be. A good example of the way our complex litigation experience supports our success in personal injury was a catastrophic accident case that we settled for $50 million, the largest reported personal injury settlement in United States history.
We don’t operate like many other firms our size. We don’t hire recent law school graduates. Rather, every one of our attorneys joined Callahan & Blaine as an experienced and successful trial practitioner. They are then trained and molded for several years into the Callahan & Blaine litigation style: aggressive, thorough, comprehensive and, most of all, WINNING! Each lawyer brings a distinct skill set that enriches and extends our firm’s ability to meet client needs. No client trusts important elements of a case to an inexperienced associate at Callahan & Blaine, simply because we don’t have any.
Our personal injury clients benefit from the breadth and depth of our experience in many fields: negligence law, insurance law, products liability, and the highly technical issues that can arise in the proof of damages in a brain injury case or a disabling accident involving a child. We’re not only able to make the proof of complex damages claims stand up in the face of highly skilled opposition, we also know how to find the insurance coverage necessary to support the damages we can prove.
