Prominent Beverly Hills law firm Ervin Cohen & Jessup has reason to celebrate after associate David Bricker won a $16.5 million verdict on behalf of his clients last Friday, January 29, 2010.

''We are very pleased that the jury found in favor of our clients,'' Bricker said. ''The jurors understood how hard it was to put a price tag on the pain and suffering [his clients] have endured for the past seven years- misery they will continue to endure for the rest of their lives.''
Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP is one of the oldest and most established law firms in Los Angeles.
