Less than one percent of plaintiffs' personal injury attorneys are honored with the Super Lawyers designation.
Founding law firm partners, Brad Cosiglia, Timothy McMahon and Robert Allard were selected because of their professional track record of results for their clients and recognition by their peers in the profession.
Corsiglia was named the 2010 Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association and recorded one of the top medical malpractice awards ($6.5 million) in California last year. He has helped position Corsiglia McMahon & Allard as one of the best law firms in America in 2010 as named by U.S. News Best Law Firms.
McMahon was honored by the Consumer Attorneys of California last year for his groundbreaking work in a cyber bullying case that forced the parents of teenage cyber-bullies to be accountable for the Internet harassment and bullying of a high school student. In 2010, McMahon also held a Bay Area Hotel chain financially accountable, following settlement of a civil suit against the employer, for violating employment laws which resulted in an undocumented employee being brutally attacked by guests and severely brain damaged.
Allard is the attorney representing numerous molestation victims in the USA Swimming coaching abuse scandal. His advocacy to hold USA Swimming responsible, led the US Olympic Committee to implement the first-ever guidelines aimed at addressing abuse and molestation by coaches. Allard also settled a Calaveras County Amusement Park accident case that resulted in safer amusement park rides nationwide for $3.375 million. Both Allard and Corsiglia were named as California's Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association.
Sigala, named as a “Rising Star”, and McMahon worked together to secure $1.45 million for a construction worker who was injured when a scissor lift he was operating tipped over in a hole left uncovered by the General and Plumbing subcontractor. The injured worker had no prior training on the scissor lift.
"At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, we do more than just settle cases…we take cases to trial if insurance carriers won't compensate our clients fairly," said McMahon. Numerous personal injury, premises liability, medical malpractice and workplace injury cases have been referred to Corsiglia McMahon & Allard due to their reputation among their peers as fighters for their client’s rights.
Over the past three years, the law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard has obtained more than $30 million in verdicts and settlements for its clients.
