We are proud to announce
Jennifer Keller's selection for the prestigious
for California Attorneys of the Year
Jennifer Keller, Stephen
Larson and their trial team were honored with a California Lawyer Magazine CLAY Award -
California Attorneys of the Year - for their successful defense of San
Bernardino County developer Jeff Burum during a nine-month jury trial in
2017. (People v. Biane
et al.) The case was jointly prosecuted by the California Attorney General
and the San Bernardino County District Attorney. Then-Attorney General
Jerry Brown had called it "The biggest corruption case in the history
of San Bernardino County and possibly the State of California." The
defense vigorously cross-examined the prosecution witnesses and rested
without calling a single witness of its own. The jury was out for approximately
two hours before returning a verdict of not guilty on all charges.
It was Jennifer's second CLAY
Award. Her first, in 2012, honored her "extraordinary achievement in
litigation" in 2011 — a $170 million victory for her client MGA in MGA Entertainment v. Mattel,
a case she had entered as lead counsel just 12 days before trial.
We thrive on the tough cases:
the ones where your company, fortune or liberty are on the line.
