Biography

Celebrity Trial Lawyer, John Uustal, has won some of the largest verdicts ever against the most powerful companies in the world and has — on multiple occasions — uncovered confidential corporate documents, making international news and appearing on 60 Minutes, CNN, the Today Show, FOX News, and in People magazine and The New York Times. His first year out of law school, he won a record-setting fifty-million dollar verdict. He handles incredibly complex and difficult cases against the best defense attorneys in the world. He fights for those being taken advantage of by large corporations, whether they are taking advantage of millions of customers, or one celebrity. Clients have called him “the real deal”; “an old-school fighter” who “cared about us as people first.”
