Christopher B. Dolan is attorney of Dolan Law Firm PC. Recognized as one of the top plaintiff’s lawyers in California and founder and Chief Legal Counsel of the Dolan Law Firm, Chris Dolan spearheads significant and challenging lawsuits filed in California state and federal courts against insurance companies, Fortune 500 companies, cities and other public agencies, and product manufacturers.
Under Chris’ leadership, the Dolan Law Firm has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for its clients and become one of California’s premier plaintiffs’ firms serving clients injured due to the fault of another or were discriminated against or treated unfairly in the workplace.
Possessing a “history of winning multi-million judgments for his clients,” as noted by the San Francisco Business Times, Chris has successfully tried over 46 cases and settled hundreds of lawsuits on favorable terms for his clients.
Chris supervises all cases litigated by the Dolan Law Firm. He has obtained jury verdicts or settlements of more than $1 million in over 26 cases. Some of the settlements in these cases were for amounts exceeding $10 million but were confidential and cannot be listed.
Chris’ unparalleled success in civil litigation includes the largest verdict – $61 million – ever in U.S. history for individuals subjected to racial and ethnic discrimination and harassment in violation of their civil rights. The case involved two Lebanese-Americans who after 9/11 were repeatedly taunted by their manager and coworkers as “terrorists,” “sand niggers,” and other slurs.
While obtaining the maximum financial recovery allowed under the law for his clients remains a constant focus of Chris’ practice, he knows that justice means more than money. Working closely with his clients, Chris has forced cities and counties to fix dangerous streets and intersections and manufacturers to produce safer products.
“Since our business represents those who are harmed by the fault of others, I feel a moral obligation to try and reduce the number and severity of injuries,” Chris states. “It’s not enough to represent people after they have been injured, those of us who do this work must strive to prevent harm.”
