Mr. Aitken has successfully litigated and tried numerous civil actions both in the state and federal courts, and he has obtained numerous seven and eight figure results for his clients. His notable achievements include a trial judgment on behalf of his clients in the amount of $55,180,000 in Gutierrez vs. The United States. The Gutierrez judgment is believed to be the largest amount ever awarded in an Orange County personal injury action to a single plaintiff, and the largest amount ever awarded in an injury action against the United States government. This judgment was subsequently upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. In a separate matter, Mr. Aitken negotiated a settlement in the amount of $19,250,000 for his clients in a fiercely disputed action against a publicly traded international corporation. In 2009, Mr. Aitken obtained a jury verdict over $2,600,000 for his clients after a hotly contested four week trial against Ford Motor Co., based on a product defect in a Ford F350 truck. His appellate practice is reflected in published opinions such as Boicourt v. Amex Assurance Co., and Rothman v. Jackson.
