DeWitt Algorri & Algorri, founded in 1979 by Louis DeWitt and Mark Algorri, has become one of Southern California’s most elite and established plaintiff’s personal injury trial firms. DAA’s team of real trial lawyers who specialize in catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and insurance bad faith cases, and they have a track record of numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements to back it up. Their dynamic approach has garnered high recognition in the legal profession and in the press.
The Algorri firm has been featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes®, NBC’s Meet the Press®, Reason®, and numerous local and international news media. Over 95 percent of their cases are referred by other law firms and former clients– even judges. That says it all.
Spanning almost 5 decades, the Algorri firm has fiercely represented the gravely injured, their families, and consumers against the negligent and reckless, including large corporations, motor vehicle and product manufacturers, insurance companies, and other well-financed and powerful adversaries. We firmly understand we are on the right side of justice representing people against monied interests. Cases declined or clients abandoned by other attorneys often come here to reverse course and secure victory.

The Algorri firm will take your case on a contingency basis – no recovery, no fee—and invest its own money and resources to hire the best investigators and expert witnesses, and if need be, take your case to trial. At the time of settlement, they will resolve loose ends, from negotiating your medical liens or retaining specialists to create structured settlements and special needs trusts, if necessary, to provide a secure future for the injured without losing valuable benefits. Cases are also prepared for trial using video recorded focus groups and mock trials in our state-of the art facilities so that winning is not achieved by accident. Practice, indeed, makes perfect.
