    Christopher Bulone

    Christopher Bulone, a native of Florida, is now a fast-rising star in California courtrooms where he continues to rack up record results. Mr. Bulone graduated from the public interest-minded law school of The University of San Francisco in 2011 and spent his entire career since working tirelessly on behalf of the most downtrodden against the world’s most powerful corporations.

    On January 30th of 2023 Mr. Bulone set a record in Contra Costa County with a more than five-million, one hundred-thousand-dollar ($5,100,000.00) jury verdict ($7,670,000.00 to include prejudgment interest) for an immigrant struck in a crosswalk by a careless taxi driver. The plaintiff spoke no English and suffered from severe prior mental health issues for which she was hospitalized during the year before the accident. Difficulties with language, cognition, and the victim’s righteous refusal to voice any of her deficits caused a mild traumatic brain injury to go undiagnosed for the first five years following the accident. Mr. Bulone was, nonetheless, able to prove the link between the car accident, the mild traumatic brain injury and the residual deficits that unfairly afflicted the hard-working mother of three.

    In late 2021 Mr. Bulone’s record setting jury trial verdict, of more than seventy-two million, six hundred thousand dollars ($72,600,000.00) in Greene v. Driz et al made headlines throughout the country. There Mr. Bulone represented a young model and her brother, a restauranteur and bar owner, who were the victims of a brutal beating at the hands of the wealthy then owners of eleven different Blaze Pizza franchises. Both injury victims were acting as innocent good samaritans attempting to stop the beating of a TMZ photographer just outside West Hollywood’s The Nice Guy restaurant and lounge. The defendants claimed that they were attacked first and acted only in self defense, and that none of them were responsible for any injury or blows landed on Ms. Greene. The claims were soundly rejected by the jury. After a three week trial wherein Mr. Bulone, as lead trial attorney, selected the jury, gave opening and closing arguments, the jury awarded his clients more than seventy-two million, six hundred thousand dollars ($72,600,000.00) between compensatory and punitive damages. The jury award is thought to be the largest in history for a case of predominantly PTSD injuries.

    Also in 2021, Mr. Bulone aggressively and tirelessly litigated the case of Eric Murillo v. U-Haul Co. of Arizona et al against one of the country’s largest rental companies and a defense law firm who bitterly contested fault. The case culminated in a forty-two million, seven hundred and fifty thousand dollar ($42,750,000.00) result. The case involved a tragic accident wherein the then thirty-four (34) year old Eric Murillo rented a U-Haul truck from U-Haul Moving and Storage of San Bernardino and drove it only approximately seven miles, before the engine began to billow smoke and catch fire. Mr. Murillo leapt from the cabin at high speed, impacted his head and became forever seriously brain injured and dependent upon twenty-four-hour (24) care. After approximately fifty-five depositions and many hundreds of written discovery requests, Gary Dordick and Christopher Bulone tried the case to a three judge panel of arbitrators who unanimously found that plaintiff proved that the rental truck engine caught fire from poor maintenance and inspection, leading to a likely power steering fluid loss, sudden compromised steering and braking, and the smoke and fire event that caused Mr. Murillo to jump. The panel found one hundred percent (100%) fault on the U-Haul companies. Although the arbitration was bifurcated on liability and damages the U-Haul companies still offered zero (0) before the start of the damages phase. Following the presentation of the still bitterly contested damages phase of the case and during the panel’s deliberations, the U-Haul defendants finally agreed to a combined Forty-one million seven-hundred and fifty thousand dollar ($41,750,000.00) settlement. The settlement was followed by a policy limits demand and settlement of another one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) from the last outside mechanic to work on the truck, bringing the total result to a historic forty-two million, seven hundred and fifty thousands dollars ($42,750,000.00).

    Mr. Bulone’s other noteworthy results since joining the Dordick Law Corporation in 2017, include handling the matter of Sosa v. DJI Technology, Inc. culminating in a jury verdict of over thirty-one million dollars ($31,000,000.00). This was the third highest verdict in the State of California during that year. Mr. Bulone handled another traumatic brain injury case resulting in seventeen million dollars ($17,000,000.00) and another resulting in an eight million dollar ($8,000,000.00) settlement. Mr. Bulone tried the case of Holmes v. Perry in Riverside Superior Court to a jury verdict resulting in the third largest multi-vehicle collision accident verdict in California in 2018. He represented the victim of a motorcycle accident resulting in a twelve and a half million dollar ($12,500,000.00) settlement in one of California’s most conservative venues and further obtained results in the multiple seven figures in an insurance bad faith matter, a ride-sharing rape case, and several wrongful death cases.

    In 2019 Mr. Bulone beat the odds to take on powerful construction companies on behalf of a distraught mother suffering the tragic death of her son who slipped from the third story scaffolding at his construction job. Mr. Bulone argued that the job site was abhorrently unsafe, that a stucco company had failed to clean the slippery stucco overspray residue from the scaffolding and that their negligence caused Plaintiff’s son to lose his footing and fall to his death. There were no witnesses to the fall and government (OSHA) investigations found no wrong doing by the defendants. During the course of Mr. Bulone’s relentless discovery, however, a cover up by the defendants was revealed resulting in the guilty corporation admitting responsibility for the young man’s death and another multi seven figure result in Orange County.

    Mr. Bulone also handled the case of a thirteen-year-old girl who was catastrophically injured by a falling eucalyptus tree. Liability was denied until discovery revealed that the defendants should have known of a dangerous problem with the tree that they did not act quickly to resolve. After defeating several summary judgment motions, Mr. Bulone resolved the matter for fourteen million dollars ($14,000,000.00), also in Orange County.

    In June of 2019 Christopher Bulone was identified by the National Trial Lawyers as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyers in California. Mr. Bulone was named a Super Lawyers’ “Rising Star” in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Mr. Bulone has also been named as an Honorary Board Member in the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charity (LATLC).

    Mr. Bulone has lectured to large audiences of fellow trial lawyers on winning brain injury cases at the TBI Med Legal Seminar in San Diego in 2021, on overcoming incorrect or misleading hospital toxicology reports at the Dordick Trial Lawyer’s College and lectured to more than five thousand (5,000) fellow trial lawyers at TBI Med Legal’s seminar recapping the historic result in Murillo v. U-Haul et al.

    Dylan Dordick

    Dylan attended the University of California, Hastings School of Law in San Francisco where he was a distinguished member of the school’s trial advocacy competition team. As a member of the team, Dylan won the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association’s annual mock trial competition and placed second in Golden Gate University’ annual competition in addition to be awarded the best oral advocate in his Moot Court class.

    Dylan was also the president of the Homeless Legal Services organization where he volunteered to provide free legal services to the residents of the largest homeless shelter in Northern California. For his efforts, Dylan earned the Outstanding Achievement in Pro Bono, a distinction awarded to students who completed over 150 hours of pro bono work. Dylan was also presented with the Wiley W. Manuel Certificate for Pro Bono Services by the State Bar of California.

    After graduating Cum Laude from the University of California, Hastings School of Law, he joined a prominent personal injury firm where he tried several cases to verdict, including co-trying a disputed liability spine injury case that resulted in a four million four hundred thousand dollar verdict ($4,400,000.00) which was the 14th largest car accident verdict in California in 2018. When the opportunity arose, Dylan took the next step in his career and joined his family’s law practice. He was distinguished in both 2020 and 2021 as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine, a distinction only given to the top 2.5% of lawyers in California with less than ten years of practice.

    Since joining the family practice, Dylan tried a case as lead trial counsel that resulted in an award of $10,205,904.00 for a little girl hit by a car who suffered a traumatic brain injury and in their first trial together as a father-son duo, a jury returned a verdict of $8,449, 723.92 for our client who was hit by a car resulting in ankle, knee and back surgeries. Dylan was the lead attorney on the Brown v. Beach House Design and Development case which led to an appellate court decision that was one of the most favorable developments in the law for work place construction injuries in a generation and he consistently obtains seven and eight figure settlements for his clients by following the famous diplomacy tactic of Theodore Roosevelt: “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” Mr. Roosevelt described this strategy as “the exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis.” As an advocate who handles cases from injury to trial, that is his guiding principle. 

    In his free time, Dylan enjoys going boxing, seeing live music, and reading nearly every genre of book he can find. He was also a professional brewer prior to becoming a lawyer and enjoys going to breweries and distilleries around the country. He is a life-long Los Angeles Kings fan, loves watching MotoGP motorcycle racing, and enjoys collecting vintage Hawaiian T-Shirts and concert posters from historical venues. If you see him out and about, you are likely to see him wearing one of his favorite Stetson Open Road hats which were popularized by President Truman and President Johnson.
