Paul Sizemore
June 13, 1970-June 16, 2014

Paul Sizemore practiced exclusively in the areas of mass torts, products liability and mesothelioma. In his nearly 20 years of practice, Paul fought for the rights of victims and tried numerous cases against the world’s largest corporate juggernauts. What set him apart from others: Paul took cases to trial and aggressively represented his client’s interests. Indeed, this is why Paul was  selected as a Top 20 California attorney, a top 100 litigator, and twice awarded law firm litigator of the year.

Examples of Paul’s bellwether trials include trying both the first Multi-District (MDL) and the first California State Court Vioxx trials. That litigation ultimately resolved for $4.85 billion.

Paul was also selected by the MDL Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) to try the first MDL Bextra case. The overall litigation ultimately settled for nearly $2 billion.

The Avandia PSC also selected Paul as a member of the MDL trial team. Cases were selected for trial with Paul as the head trial attorney and, predictably, the litigation ultimately settled. The settlement, thus far, is for between 1 and 2 billion dollars.

There is a clear reason The Sizemore Law Firm has been so very successful. Corporations understand that the firm has the attorneys and resources to successfully prepare and try a lawsuit. Paul’s perseverance has resulted in a form of respect by the corporations that can only be achieved through success in the courtroom.
