Successful Wildfire Trial Attorneys in Utility-Caused Fires
Experienced Camp Fire lawyers. Fighting to recover losses from Camp Fire in Butte County.
Who We Are
The Camp Fire Trial lawyers have over a decade of experience handling powerline-triggered fires. They are also lifelong California residents who compiled these resources to help families and neighbors through this devastating time. CaseyGerry is one of the oldest and most established plaintiff’s civil litigation firms in California with more than 72 years of experience. The firm has teamed up with two of the most experienced powerline fire lawyers in the United States: Thomas Tosdal and Michael Feinberg.
Thomas and Michael are two leading power line lawyers in fire litigation related to powerlines. Thomas, Michael and Angela Jae Chun of CaseyGerry were part of the legal team in the San Diego fire litigation in 2007 who successfully recovered more than half a billion dollars for the hundreds of families they were honored to represent.
Thomas has taken a leadership role in establishing liability, proving damages and obtaining fair compensation for hundreds of residents, farmers, and companies harmed by California powerline fires. He is one of the few lawyers to ever successfully take a powerline case to trial and win on a national level. A graduate of Harvard Law, Thomas has been recognized by the Trial Bar and several legal publications for his outstanding work.

“…our discussion was that the tribe was blessed to have had what I and they consider to have been the most outstanding representation either of us had ever seen.”

Legal Action for Camp Fire Victims in Paradise, Butte County, California
PG&E’S Bankruptcy and Wildfire Claims
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on January 29, 2019. Those who were injured, lost loved ones, and suffered property damage in the 2017 North Bay Fires and 2018 Camp Fire may be wondering what this means for their claims against PG&E. In short, fire victims still have a legal claim and have not lost their right to recover damages against PG&E.
All fire victims now have a “claim” for their fire related losses in federal bankruptcy court. All state court lawsuits filed against PG&E for the 2017 and 2018 wildfires are now “stayed” or on “hold” and will now be handled in PG&E’s bankruptcy case. Fire victims are also now “creditors” of PG&E and their claims for fire-related losses will be resolved in bankruptcy.
