Mr. George’s clients have received numerous seven and eight figure jury trial verdicts in both catastrophic personal injury and employment discrimination / harassment cases. These include jury trial verdicts against many large corporations such as Wal-Mart, Ford Motor Company, California Youth Authority, Los Angeles County Metrolink, Columbia Medical Hospitals, etc. He did not lose a trial for ten consecutive years. Just this past November 2016, George received a jury verdict of $26 million for the “loss of love” to the mother and father in the wrongful death jury trial of their 16-year-old son. This (noneconomic) loss of love jury award is the largest wrongful death jury verdict of a minor in U.S. history.
