Walkup Lawyers Nominated for Trial Lawyer of the Year Award

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Conor Kelly has been nominated for the 15th Annual San Francisco Trial Lawyers, “Trial Lawyer of the Year” award, which will be presented on April 17 at the Nikko Hotel in San Francisco.

Their nomination is for their exemplary work in matter of Myrick vs. Hansa where they obtained a record-breaking $38 million unanimous jury verdict on behalf of a 20-year-old boy who was rendered quadriplegic when his attending physicians failed to properly diagnose and treat him for a developing stroke.

The verdict is thought to be the largest verdict ever for a single-plaintiff medical negligence case in San Francisco Superior Court history, and ranks among the top 50 largest verdicts in the entire United States for calendar 2013.
