Marcus A. Mancini Esq.

Sherman Oaks, California


  • After passing the bar in 1990, Mr. Mancini worked for a defense firm specializing in general liability (Stein, Hanger, Levine &. Young), and a combined plaintiff/defense firm specializing in general liability with an emphasis on construction defect litigation, where he began his involvement in employment cases (Negele, Knopfler, Fierson & Robertson ).

  • In December 1993, Mr. Mancini tried and won his first civil case (stock fraud) for the managing partner of the firm (!), who had designed the Vector, then the world's fastest production car (you may have seen one in the movie "Rising Sun" with Sean Connery and Wesley Snipes).

  • From March 1994 through March 1997, Mr. Mancini worked for Lawrence P. Grassini, the only two time Trial Lawyer of the Year in Los Angeles, with over 250 trials under his belt.

  • Mr. Mancini's trial record is 21-2. Over his career, Mr. Mancini has also compiled a record of over sixty (60) arbitration victories, with only four losses. Among the victories were ten straight defense arbitrations.

  • Mr. Mancini began his own practice in March 1997. Since that time, he has won over $40,000,000 in verdicts and settlements.

  • In 1997, at age 36, Mr. Mancini was nominated for Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Consumer Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), which represents the Plaintiff's Bar in Southern California. Although he did not win, Mr. Mancini is tied for being the youngest nominee for this most prestigious award. The winner typically is in his late 40s or 50s, with tens if not hundreds of millions in verdicts to his credit.

  • In 1999, Mr. Mancini was nominated by his Case Western Reserve University Law School class for Outstanding 10-Ycar Graduate.

Mr. Mancini's contribution to the legal profession is his tenacity and conviction in what he does-represent aggrieved consumers. Mr. Mancini believes that the function of the plaintiff or consumer lawyer is actually a conservative one: to maintain individual liberties, the same as the minuteman in the Revolutionary War of Independence-the first line of offense and the last line of defense against the oppression and tyranny of government and corporations, and to maintain and preserve the status quo as set up by the brave minutemen. As an immigrant's son, Mr. Mancini's ethnic sense of being is a powerful force that drives him to excel and represent those individuals with the most need-consumers and plaintiffs-and which juries identify with.
