Fiumara & Milligan Law, PC a local law firm since 1992 cannot fight PG&E alone as we did in the 1996 Cavedale Fire where our local firm recovered substantial damages against PG&E for tree damage PG&E Settlement.
After seeing firsthand my entire neighborhood of Fountaingrove burned beyond recognition, our Local Law Firm felt an abiding duty to team up with the most qualified, experienced and ethical law firm with the greatest resources to take on the flotilla of attorneys that PG&E has already hired. We interviewed four other law firms before we made our decision to exclusively work with this team.
The Tubbs, Nuns and Atlas Fires is now considered California’s most destructive and costliest destroying over 5,500 structures and killing 42 people in the North Bay. Hence, our local law firm has teamed up with Mauro Archer & Associates who have partnered with the nationally acclaimed mass tort law firm of Watts & Guerra. Mikal Watts goes back to the Ford Pinto case winning substantial compensation for the fire explosion cases right after he graduated from law school. Mr. Watts is considered the best mass tort litigator in the United States and his proven track record of recovering over 4.5 billion dollars of compensation for over 200,000 satisfied clients speaks for itself.
Another reason Fiumara & Milligan has chosen to team up with Mauro Archer & Associates and Watts Guerra is because we strongly feel the same way they do, that since this wild fire occurred here in Sonoma County and destroyed much of the North Bay, it needs to be heard where most of the victims live—in the Sonoma County Superior Court in Santa Rosa and not San Francisco. How could potential San Francisco jurors possibly know what it is like to have suffered this horrific loss and devastation?
The Mauro Archer and Watts Guerra partnership of attorneys is the only law firm that has filed the fire victims’ cases in the Sonoma County Superior Court. This move rightfully gives you ease of participation, input and the possibility to serve as jurors—your constitutional right. We believe that this case should be heard not on the same home turf where PG&E has its headquarters which is San Francisco, but here in Santa Rosa where the fire destroyed over 5% of the city of Santa Rosa’s housing stock!
We feel confident that there will be a substantial judgment and a punitive damages award against PG&E for the fire victims because causation will be proven. To ensure that this happens, Watts Guerra has hired the best and most respected fire expert in the nation, Michael Schulz, who wrote the manual itself on wild fires. This exclusive contract with Michael Schulz to render his expert opinion will also more likely than not increase the value of all fire victims’ cases in Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino Counties
Lastly, our law firm, Fiumara & Milligan Law, PC, has chosen to exclusively work with Mauro Archer & Associates along with Watts & Guerra because we feel that we have a responsibility to help our community fully and completely recover. In my opinion this team of deeply committed and compassionate professionals has the BEST record of any individual or group of law firms or attorneys to successfully hold PG&E fully accountable so that we can move our lives forward.
