I am a trial lawyer at Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield, LLP, with a focus on brain injury cases. I am proud to say I have tried 70+ cases to trial.
In 2013 I attended the 3-week Trial Lawyers College and in 2018 I began teaching with TLC, helping work civil and criminal trials across the country. I now co-lead with Ginger Ortiz the TLC graduate program “Grad I”.
I host and produce the Casey Gerry podcast The Ganci Law Update, a monthly update on civil cases and laws as they apply to the California Civil Justice System (see link for all listening platforms here), and I have also presented with the trial publication and education resource Trial Guides. See my Trial Guides presentation Mastering Case Management: Strategies for Efficient & Effective Organization here. I am donating all my proceeds to the Brain Injury Association of California.
I am also a drummer (BA in music education). My main band is Rock Out Karaoke, a live-band karaoke experience. Please visit www.RockOutKaraoke.com for booking info.
