In a Product and Premises Liability injury case involving a sand and gravel operation in North Los Angeles County, Gary obtained lifetime benefits for two men crushed when a defective coupler failed to hold a two ton bucket as a crane was lowering the bucket.

A 17 year old promising high school student was playing soccer one day, when he suddenly experienced severe neck pain, cause unknown. The next day, still with terrible neck pain, he presented to a local hospital emergency department. Tragically, after 8 hours of medical malpractice due to a failure to order the most obvious tests, emergency surgery was too late; the young man is now a quadriplegic. As his injury lawyer, I helped obtain sufficient funds from multiple defendants to provide lifetime care to this promising young artist.
Gary tried the case of Joseph, a 40 year old man battling leukemia who found himself in a hospital emergency room after a horrible reaction to the cancer medications. His reaction brought on a psychotic episode and yet the County hospital admissions staff placed Joseph next to a window. Joseph jumped out the window, breaking his back. G
Gary tried the case of Joseph, a 40 year old man battling leukemia who found himself in a hospital emergency room after a horrible reaction to the cancer medications. His reaction brought on a psychotic episode and yet the County hospital admissions staff placed Joseph next to a window. Joseph jumped out the window, breaking his back. Gary sued for medical malpractice on behalf of Joseph against the County Hospital for negligence in failing to provide close supervision. The hospital did not offer a dime at the mediation and thus Gary proceeded to trial. The jury found the County liable and awarded damages well in excess of the legal damages cap that has plagued medical negligence victims since 1975. The County did not appeal and paid the full judgment plus costs.
Justin Gordon, Personal injury Attorney since 2015:
Gary N. Stern is a highly knowledgeable and skilled attorney. He is an expert civil litigator, negotiator, and advocate; I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Blake L., recent client:
"Gary was assigned to my "slip and fall" case and I could not speak more highly of Gary. His knowledge around the law, his communication tactics, as well as his headstrong attitude towards my case was a game changer for me and my case. Not only does he have a rich understanding of the law, but he is a fantastic human being and will absolutely go to bat for you in the most experienced and relational way possible. So thankful for Gary!"
I hired Gary's firm shortly after a car accident in October of 2016, and while I was happy with their services and thoroughness, what seemed to be a simple case was taking a while to resolve. A little over a year after the incident, Gary was assigned to my case and took a fresh look at everything, and even met in person with me during the very busy holiday season to go over the finer details, understand the full scope of what happened, what my hopes were for the case, and also to put a personal touch on all the proceedings. I felt we had an instant rapport, and for the first time since the accident, I had a clear view into the legal process. Through his guidance and explanation, I not only understood my case better, but also got to know his part in it all; from his background in working on behalf of people (and not the big insurance institutions), I knew I would have a fierce but fair advocate in my corner. By the time our face-to-face meeting had concluded it felt as though I had simply had a nice conversation with a good listener. But as he explained his recommended course of action and what his approach would be, I realized that he had been incredibly thorough that whole time, listening to each detail, and taking in not only the facts of the case, but also who I was, why this was important to me, and what my expectations were. With every new development since, Gary has been expedient, helpful, and hands on. I felt that Gary added the personal approach that I was feeling I needed in the handling of my case, but at the same time it sped things up and got things done. It's reassuring when business can feel so easy, but I know Gary was working hard behind the scenes since the case was wrapped in just 2 short months after our initial meeting, and settled at a much higher number than I was anticipating. I credit his diligent and dutiful approach to detail, his passion for helping people who need a strong voice on their behalf, and his years of experience that is to say efficiency, efficacy, and empathy. I am sure that I'm only one of many clients who feel this way. While I hope this is the only time I need a lawyer, I know who to contact or recommend should the need arise.
