Utility companies have a long history of causing wildfires due to inadequate management of power lines and the surrounding vegetation.
Put simply, Pacific Fire Attorneys (“PFA”) hold these utility companies accountable when they cause wildfires and we do it well. PFA consists of multiple law firms that together have represented thousands of individuals and businesses that have suffered losses from wildfires. Due to our experience, we have been appointed by various courts across California and the country to serve on leadership positions in several wildfire cases.
For example, attorneys in PFA were appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee for the litigation in Sacramento against PG&E related to the 2015 Butte Fire in Calaveras County. We were also appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee in the ongoing cases in Los Angeles against Southern California Edison (“SCE”) stemming from the disastrous 2017 Thomas Fire and Montecito mudslide litigation and the 2018 Woolsey/Malibu Fire Litigation. We also represented our clients as part of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the 2017 North Bay Fires against PG&E, which include claims arising from the Tubbs, Nuns, Atlas, Redwood Valley and Cascade Fires.
