Lieff Cabraser is among the largest firms in the United States that only represent plaintiffs. Described by The American Lawyer as "one of the nation's premier plaintiffs' firms," Lieff Cabraser enjoys a national reputation for professional integrity and the successful prosecution of our clients' claims. We possess sophisticated legal skills and the financial resources necessary for the handling of large, complex cases, and for litigating against some of the nation's largest corporations. We take great pride in the leadership roles our firm plays in many of this country's major cases, including those resulting in landmark decisions and precedent-setting rulings.

Lieff Cabraser has litigated and resolved thousands of individual lawsuits and hundreds of class and group actions, including some of the most important civil cases in the United States over the past three decades. We have assisted our clients recover over $42 billion in verdicts and settlements for clients, plus an additional $206 billion in the multi-state tobacco litigation. Fifteen cases were resolved for over $1 billion; another 30 cases resulted in verdicts or settlements in excess of $100 million.

In the 2010 edition of its annual list of the top plaintiffs' law firms, The National Law Journal again selected Lieff Cabraser. In compiling the list, The National Law Journal examines recent verdicts and settlements and looked for firms "representing the best qualities of the plaintiffs' bar and that demonstrated unusual dedication and creativity." Lieff Cabraser is one of only two plaintiffs' law firms in the United States to receive this honor for the last eight years.

In September 2010, U.S. News and Best Lawyers recognized Lieff Cabraser as one of the best law firms in the nation.
