Mr. Claypool and members of his firm are mindful that if a case needs to proceed to a trial, that a true partnership between the lawyer and client must exist to collectively motivate a jury to find in your favor. Further, by engendering close personal relationships with clients, working together is not only mutually rewarding financially, but is also an enjoyable experience. Over the years, Mr. Claypool has arbitrated more than 100 cases, conducted in excess of 50 jury trials to verdict with a 90% win rate, and has conducted an additional 5-10 bench trials throughtout eleven counties. Claypool obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from Villanova University School of Law in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a minor in Business Administration from Penn State University.

Held a press conference today at my office to release shocking video footage of our client (15 year old student) being assaulted not far from the high school administrative office. She sustained a severe concussion and numbness in her arms. This is the 6th lawsuit we have had to file against the Yucaipa/Calimesa Unified School district for failing to take #bullying serious and inadequate security and ineffective suicide prevention policies. We also represent the family of #RosalieAvila. She committed suicide by hanging after relentless bullying at the same school district. #stopbullying #suicideprevention

Please see my comments in a powerful and profound USA TODAY article regarding the recent arrest of the #ParklandShooting resource officer for culpable negligence (link for article below). Social change is work in progress such as a much needed assault weapon ban, a loosening of privacy laws to allow mental health records to be shared with law enforcement and gun distributors, use of K9 dogs and pharmaceutical companies being held responsible for misleading the public on the aggressive side effects of several drugs. However, the arrest is certainly a step in the right direction to improve safety at schools. #parkland #schoolshooting

Appeared on Fox News with Trace Gallagher & Shepard Smith today to discuss the tragic death of University of Maryland student #OliviaParegol from a adenovirus #outbreak
University of Maryland should have conveyed to ALL students on campus of the adenovirus virus once they became aware and this would have likely saved Olivia’s life. The University chose preserving “public image” over student safety and must face the music and make appropriate changes to create more transparency.
I spoke to Olivia’s father after the show and had the privilege of expressing my outrage and condolences for the loss of their precious angel.

I am beyond thankful to the amazing response @letshopscoth has received from the Austin community. This #immersive & #experiential Art Experience is a project that is very important to me as I wanted to make a positive influence on a community I love with #immersiveart & #expermentalart uplifting our souls and bringing magic to life, post Vegas shooting. Creating a space alongside the talented @huntermania & @jensenfest that can is able to trigger positive senses & an experience that fuels imagination is a major personal accomplishment. The 6 week exhibition runs through the end of March in Austin and we plan to launch a permanent location in the heart of SA later in the year 💫

As this week comes to an end I am thinking of my beautiful daughter & holding her close as time with our kids is precious. I represent the parents of #RosalieAvila pictured next to my daughter & I) a beautiful angel who hung herself to death after relentless #bullying & #sexualharassment at Yucaipa/Calimesa Unified School District. We are suing the school district for her wrongful death. Rosie left a suicide note apologizing for being ugly and didn’t want her picture on her casket. #Antibullying the time is now to hold schools across the country responsible when they fail to safeguard kids like Rosie from bullies. Schools are also responsible for curbing harassing #socialmedia posts. In our case, a bully who had assaulted other kids posted a video of an UGLY girl (picture of deceased Rosie) and a pretty girl. Let’s all rally to create new laws to #protectkids at school and let’s take these schools to the mat when they kick beautiful kids like #RosalieAvila under the bus. We are working along with the father to create #Rosieslaw an #antibullying law. Please share so we can ensure schools are a safe place for our children to learn 🙏🏼

Last night I joined Laura Ingraham The Ingraham Angle on Fox News re the FBI report stemming from the #LasVegasShooting. As a #survivor and representing 125 victims, the report makes no mention of MGM’s failed security and how we as a country can prevent another #massshooting. Law enforcement has always been more concerned with preserving the brand and image of Las Vegas rather finding out how MGM allowed #StephenPaddock to carry out this mass violence. Click the below to see the full video on my YouTube channel as well as past commentary since the Las Vegas shooting 🙏🏼

I was a Weekend Warrior 💪🏼 with #fitness and excited to begin pitching my sizzle reel of an intriguing new one hour a week interactive talk show in which I would host! Need to be fit to begin this next journey of pursuing unfinished #dreams ✨
We all have to show patience in the pursuit of our dreams and not compare to the success of others on social media. We get in #life what we Pray for, what we Pay for and what we Stay for. Pray for big things 🙏🏼 Don’t box yourself in! Make the long term investment of planting and watering the seeds for your dreams. Make sure to stay to watch it grow to fruition...too many of us abort the dream before it blossoms 🌱 Dream Big 🙌🏼💥
Hope everyone is enjoying Martin Luther King Jr. day and inspired by his big dreams 💫

This last year I grappled with serious #PTSD after nearly being killed in the #LasVegasShooting. I am still coping with it. I felt immense guilt from not helping enough injured people and surviving when others died. I was a recluse for many months. @LuicilleLopez from Equinox in Pasadena has played a big role in my #recovery. I wanted to take a moment and thank her 🙏🏼 Personal #fitness through “core training” with @LucilleLopez has been one of my anchors to keep me afloat during the most challenging years of my life, post Vegas shooting 🙏🏼💪🏼💯⚓️

Please check out my comment in the video below, this shocking story on New Day on CNN by Sara Sidner re a young Phoenix woman in a vegetative state being impregnated. The baby was born in late December. She was #raped. This is #sexualasault since the victim can’t consent to sexual relations. The #MeToo movement applies also to those with #mentalhealth #physicialdisability issues. Law enforcement should not only target the employee of the nursing home who raped this woman but they should also criminally investigate the CEO (who already resigned) and other top executives who may have known or should have known that defenseless patients were left unsupervised and susceptible to sexual assault. #Reckless endangerment and #criminalnegligence
Might be suitable criminal charges to help stop this from happening again.

15-year-olds accused of raping teammates with broom

Back in 2012 I handled an identical case to this horrific one in Los Angeles against La Puente High School. The news of the 4 high school football players charged with rape for allegedly sexually assaulting freshman players with a broom, was chilling to hear. I will continue to fight for victims of sexual abuse and take action to end hazing culture in schools.

Four JV football players have been charged with rape for allegedly sexually assaulting freshman players with a broom, according to court records.

Please take about ten minutes to consider my raw heartfelt thoughts shared on my interview with @KTLA News this afternoon about the #ThousandOaksShooting and the impact of mass shootings on victims and the community.

ABC7

Thanks for your heartfelt thoughts Taylor Winston. We know the heartbreak that these families are enduring. Let’s all collectively pray and ask God to comfort and strengthen the souls of all those impacted by this senseless shooting, including those who perished, injured, survivors, first responders and medical personnel at hospitals. Apparently, the shooter had PTSD and prior run ins with law enforcement. At some point, we as a country must address those who have mental health issues and may be unfit to access guns as well as social media surveillance. Thank you for sharing your resources for coping with severe trauma on our Route91Strong site as well 🙏.
