Biographical Information

Litigation is a battle; a trial is a war. Jack's philosophy in law as in life is best summed up by a quote of Winston Churchill: "Never give in. Never, Never, Never, Never." That philosophy has served him well by giving him the drive to become a Junior Golden Gloves boxing champion, a third degree black belt in Shotokan Karate, and to receive the honor of Trial Lawyer of the Year.

For more than 35 years. Jack's goal has been to become the best trial lawyer he can be. As a California trial attorney, Jack has tried more than 100 civil cases before a jury. He has been invited to and has lectured to both attorneys and physicians. These lectures include such topics as trial practice, medical malpractice, insurance bad faith, products liability and premises liability.

He holds the designation of Diplomate, the highest rank of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is a past President of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is a past President of the Italian American Lawyers Association, a past President of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles and a past President of the Cowboy Lawyers Association. He has been on the Board of Governors and on the Executive Committee of numerous trial lawyer associations, including the Litigation Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Consumer Attorneys of California.

He has been formally recognized as one of the attorneys who assisted the task force in the preparation of the Judicial Council of California CACI jury instructions. 

As a California medical malpractice attorney, Jack has successfully represented clients for over 35 years throughout California in several types of medical malpractice and medical negligence cases, including wrongful death, birth injuries, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, emergency room errors, medication errors, nursing errors and other types of medical negligence.

As a California insurance bad faith attorney, Jack has helped clients whose insurance claims have been wrongfully denied, or their insurance coverage canceled without merit. When an insurance company is sued for bad faith, it has the money to hire the best defense attorneys. Jack believes the victim of insurance bad faith has the right to an attorney with at least as much experience. With his knowledge of insurance practice, Jack levels the playing field for his clients by aggressively defending his client's rights. He and his partners and associates have successfully handled insurance bad faith cases against numerous insurance companies.

He was selected by his peers to be included in the 2008 and the 2010 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, in the specialty of Personal Injury Litigation. He is recognized as one of the Top 500 Plaintiff Attorneys in the United States by LawDragon. The Los Angeles Trial Lawyers Association voted Jack as Trial Lawyer of the Year and he has also been selected as a Super Lawyer of Southern California for several years.

He has received recognition from the Members of Congress of the United States of America, California Senate, the California Legislature, the Los Angeles Superior Court, the County of Los Angels, the City of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County District Attorney, the Los Angeles City Attorney, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and the Metropolitan News Enterprise.

Jack has received the Consumer Attorneys of California-California Trial Lawyers Association Presidential Award of Merit in 1994, 1996 and 2000, and the Pollock Award in 2006. He has received the Consumer Attorney's Association of Los Angeles - Los Angeles Trail Lawyers Association Trial Lawyer of the Year Award, Presidential Award in 1995 and 2008, and the Ted Horn Memorial Award in 2001.

Despite his numerous individual accomplishments and awards, Jack believes the best interest of the client is served by a solid team effort by all of the attorneys and staff of the law firm.

Jack received his bachelor's degree from UCLA and his juris doctor degree from Loyola University School of Law School. His interests outside the practice of law include horseback riding, painting and boxing.

$4,800,000 Settlement - Personal INjury

John Denove represented an elderly lady who tripped on the raised flooring at a Starbucks in Pasadena. She fractured her femur and underwent surgery. Following surgery, she suffered a stroke. Starbucks denied any responsibility and denied knowledge that the floor was dangerous. During trial, Mr. Denove produced documents from Starbucks' contractor that established that Starbucks was warned seven months before that the flooring should be replaced. Mr. Denove called a health inspector from the City of Pasadena who testified she had cited Starbucks for the dangerous condition one hour before the client tripped. the judge ruled that Mr. Denove presented sufficient evidence to allow the jury to decide whether Starbucks acted with a conscious disregard of the customer's safety and whether punitive damages should be awarded. Starbucks settled the case on the last day of trial
