Attorney Carney Shegerian of Shegerian & Associates, Inc., a Santa Monica-based litigation law firm specializing in employee rights, has been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 2017 edition of The Best Lawyers in America©, one the most highly regarded lawyer-rating publications in the United States. Shegerian was selected for his work in the “Employment Law – Individuals” category.

Since it was first published in 1983, The Best Lawyers in America has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. For the 2017 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 7.3 million votes were analyzed. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Since launching Shegerian & Associates over a decade ago, Shegerian has developed a reputation as “The People’s Attorney” – fighting passionately for the rights of his employee clients, and compassionately explaining the process as each client navigates through his or her case. As an experienced trial attorney, Shegerian has tried numerous jury trials to verdict in both state and federal court, always representing individuals that have suffered financial or emotional losses and have been wronged by employers, including major corporations.

Shegerian has won over 73 jury trials, including 31 seven-figure verdicts as a plaintiff’s attorney. He is licensed to practice in all California courts, local federal courts and the United States Supreme Court.

“It’s a truly humbling honor to have been recognized by my peers and named to The Best Lawyers in America,” said Shegerian. “This recognition helps us reach those who may not be aware of their rights as employees in the state of California and beyond. I’ve made it my life’s mission to help those who have been wronged, and this acknowledgement of my dedication and work is sincerely appreciated.”
