Companies rely upon Jeff Warren to manage and try cases across the country. As part of his product liability practice, Jeff regularly tries high-profile, multi-million dollar personal injury lawsuits. In 2013 alone, Jeff tried three multi-million dollar cases to verdict in three different states, and has tried cases for numerous product manufacturers during his career. 

In addition to his trial work, Jeff also has significant experience managing complex litigation, including class actions, MDLs and pattern litigation. He also advises product manufacturers on potential regulatory and litigation issues.

Jeff has gained reputable recognition for his work on high-profile trials. Jeff represented a seatbelt buckle manufacturer in Rezzonico v. Indiana Mills and Manufacturing, Inc., a multi-million dollar catastrophic injury case which made the "Top 10 Civil Verdict of 2014" list in Arizona Attorney Magazine. His defense of Ford Motor Company in Myers v. Ford earned him the same recognition in 2008. Similarly, Jeff was part of the trial team that represented Yamaha Motor Company in the Yamaha Rhino bellwether trial of Holt v. Yamaha that the California Daily Journal identified as one of the "Top Verdicts of 2010." In addition to his automotive practice, he has handled numerous commercial cases involving contract disputes and other business tort matters.
