BRUCE A. BROILLET’S intelligent and committed approach to the law has earned him national recognition and respect among his peers in the legal community and has led to his induction into the Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles “Hall of Fame.” As a trial lawyer, he has obtained numerous seven and eight figure results. He represents plaintiffs in such areas as business litigation, products liability, professional malpractice, personal injury, and wrongful death. His diverse achievements include a $3.3 billion settlement against Big Tobacco on behalf of the County of Los Angeles, a $45.6 million verdict in a legal malpractice case (which is the largest of its kind in California’s history), one of California’s largest pre-trial injury settlements in the amount of $32.5 million, a $14.5 million verdict against a major health club concerning failure to perform proper resuscitation, and a $10.35 million award in a business fraud case against a major financial corporation.
Bruce tried and won a $55 million jury verdict for sports and television personality Erin Andrews against the Nashville Marriott relating to video secretly taken of her while she was in a state of undress in her hotel room. The case was covered nationally and internationally by all major media outlets and sparked a national conversation about security, safety and privacy for hotel guests. This verdict led to Bruce being named Consumer Attorney of the Year by the Consumer Attorneys of California.
Bruce has successfully handled a wide variety of complex cases, ranging from stock transfer fraud to defective products causing life-altering injuries. His outstanding trial work has pitted him against such diverse entities as General Motors Corporation, Isuzu Motor Co., American Appliance Corporation, Robertson Honda, Schlumberger Corp., Ford Motor Company, Ambassador Insurance Company, International Telephone and Telegraph (ITT), Globe Machinery Company, LA Fitness, Turner Construction Company, the City of Los Angeles, the County of Imperial, and the State of California. He was also involved in the Ford/Firestone tire tread litigation. Bruce has represented numerous people suffering from catastrophic injuries such as quadriplegia, paraplegia, brain damage, burns, and amputation, as well as the families of deceased loved ones in wrongful death cases.
