Brian Hennigan and John Hueston

For the second consecutive year, Brian Hennigan and John Hueston earned spots on the list of “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in America and “Top 20 Trial Lawyers in California” in the 2020 edition of Benchmark Litigation.

Benchmark editors noted Mr. Hueston’s defense of Elon Musk and Southern California Edison against civil claims arising out of the 2017 Thomas Fire, the 2018 Montecito mudslides, and the 2018 Woolsey Fire. “John is emerging as one of the most prominent trial lawyers in the country,” offers one peer. “He’s gone from being someone who was a go-to in California to someone who is just everywhere.”

The firm was also recognized as a “Top Boutiques” in the United States, one of only 12 firms selected nationwide. In addition, we were selected as one of the “Top 20 Trial Firms” in the United States, for the second year in a row.
