In 2001, after practicing civil trial law with a large law firm, Charles Cerussi started what is now Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., a boutique law firm dedicated to mastering the art and science of winning jury trials. We proudly and exclusively represent victims in serious personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. We believe in our clients cases, and if we don't have passion for a cli
ent's case, we will decline taking on representation. We only accept a small percentage of cases that are presented to us, so we are able to bring a strong commitment to each case we accept. Please read about our track record of successful cases and review our credentials. We are committed to achieving the results to help our clients recover and move on with their lives after tragic events. The majority of our cases are referred to us by other attorneys, and the remainder by former clients. The firm's attorneys practice law with the highest degree of ethics and integrity. We strive to always show respect for the clients that we are privileged to represent, our adversaries, and the Judges and Court personnel that we interact with on a regular basis. If a client is seeking an attorney that yells and screams, we are not the firm for that client. The firm does not practice in any other areas of law, we are civil trial specialists. We view our function as much more than just obtaining monetary compensation for our clients. Many of our clients during the initial consultation state that they are not litigious people, but either they or a loved one has been victimized and they want to gain answers as to what happened and why. Our clients rarely discuss money damages, rather they want to find out if they have a legitimate case, make sure their legal rights are protected, hold any wrongdoers accountable for the harm that was caused, and prevent similar accidents/incidents from happening again to other innocent victims. We believe that by pursuing our clients' individual cases, we achieve greater overall public safety. This results in fewer victims and less lawsuits. We believe that there are cases that should not be pursued, and that it is the attorney's responsibility to fully investigate a case to make sure that it has merit before filing a lawsuit. This is particularly true in the area of medical malpractice, where we consult with highly credentialed medical experts to make sure that a case against a doctor or hospital has merit, before accepting a case.
