Summary

An associate attorney with one of California's leading plaintiff's law firms, Lauren Cerri has worked on many high profile cases and achieved results at the highest level.

As co-counsel to attorney Robert Allard, Ms. Cerri helped attain a possible record $9.3 million jury verdict in Monterey County, which held Caltrans responsible for failing to fix a dangerous highway condition in a Highway 156 double-fatality wrongful death trucking accident.

Mr. Allard credits Ms. Cerri for moving the jury to award the damage verdict by skillfully showing the mother's emotional distress as she watched her young child die. "This case turned when jurors heard evidence, through direct testimony supplied by Ms. Cerri, from witnesses and first responders of a young mother witnessing the horrific death of her five-year-old child," said Mr. Allard, founding partner, Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P.

Working with Mr. Allard, Ms. Cerri has litigated numerous high profile sex abuse cases involving the protection of children's rights.

In a case that drew worldwide attention, Ms. Cerri and Mr. Allard pursued justice on behalf of the family of Audrie Pott, the young high school student who committed suicide after being publicly humiliated following her sexual assault committed by several of her classmates. Ms. Cerri drafted the complaint and the mediation brief and took numerous depositions. This case was settled in favor of the Pott family in April 2015 for $950,000.

Ms. Cerri was involved in a childhood sexual abuse lawsuit against one of California's largest daycare corporations in which seven plaintiffs were represented by Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. The cases settled for an undisclosed amount following opening arguments and also resulted in a seven-figure jury verdict against a third party whose negligence was alleged to have also contributed to the occurrence of the assaults.
