The San Francisco Trial Lawyers Annual Trial Lawyer of the Year awards dinner will be held on April 7, 2016.  Among this year’s four finalists are Dan Dell’Osso and Tom Brandi for their work in Clarke v. State of California, where a Santa Clara jury awarded $26 million to Talbot Clarke for the injuries she sustained as result of a dangerous condition at the signalized intersection at the entrance to the University of Santa Clara.

For Dan Dell’Osso, it is his second time being nominated for this prestigious award.  His first nomination was for his extraordinary verdict in Pierson v. Ford where he secured an $18 million award for Dax Pierson for a defective automobile design.  For Tom Brandi, this is the fifth time he has been nominated in the sixteen-year history of the award.
