Super Lawyers Annual List – The Top Attorneys in Orange County
February 8, 2012
The firm of Aitken * Aitken * Cohn, would like to congratulate the partners on this prestigious honor. Christopher Aitken, Darren Aitken, Richard Cohn and Wylie Aitken named in: Super Lawyers Annual List – The Top Attorneys in Orange County by: Thomson Reuters and the publishers of: Orange Coast, The Magazine of Orange County Feb 2012 edition.
At the heart of devastating injury and damage cases, this steadfast family of lawyers, fight for justice, with “purpose, grit and tenacity”.
It might be easy to get caught up in the grandeur and stature of a vehicle-accident case that carries with it a $55 million judgment against the United States government. But for this father-son team at Aitken * Aitken * Cohn, who secured that groundbreaking verdict against a government worker who was negligent behind the wheel, other elements were far more important.
Like the fact that a family was torn apart and needed help. That an innocent 5-year-old little girl named Leilani, who was safely secured in her car seat, is now paralyzed from the neck down and dependent on a ventilator for survival. That Leilani’s mother, June, will never get to watch her daughter dance at her wedding or have a child of her own. Despite the tragedy, the judgment assured that the family would have the means, to provide life-time care for this precious little girl. Those raw, human aspects are what matter most at Aitken * Aitken * Cohn.
The firm’s work has also led to important consumer safety and regulation reform within California law. After a family’s carefree day at Disneyland turned tragic when, as their children watched, a father was killed and a mother disfigured on the Sailing Ship Columbia ride. California lawmakers initiated legislative changes in theme park regulation.
These changes also assisted in the investigation of another matter, that the Aitken firm represented, which stemmed from the death of a young man, on the Big Thunder Mountain theme ride. Due in part to Aitken * Aitken * Cohn’s unwavering team, Disney, a global brand, adopted changes in the way its rides operate.
The firm’s emphasis on caring for the family and individual businesses is no surprise when one considers the firm itself is a prime example of family and the human side of law. Founder Wylie Aitken is proud to work with three of his children, Darren, Chris and Ashleigh Aitken, all attorneys. Along with firm partner Richard Cohn and associates, Aitken * Aitken * Cohn has tirelessly advocated for thousands of victims of personal injury or corporate fraud.
Though the firm has worked on a number of high-profile personal injury cases, they also handle business litigation and products liability to insurance bad faith and business torts, with the same notable results and recoveries for their clients.
Wylie credits the firm’s success to the commitment of its attorneys. “Our lawyers are skilled litigators”, he says. “We have earned the respect of not only our clients, we have earned the respect of our opponents; fear from our opponents; along with the respect of the courts and our peers.”
Aitken * Aitken * Cohn’s message is clear: “When you have suffered a tragic injury, death in the family or have been victimized, you need help. We have the resources and ability to do the job,” Wylie says. “We are different because we are family and you become part of that family. We want you to have the best-compassion, resources, experience and results.”
