He has handled wrongful death claims resulting from car, truck and motorcycle accidents, construction and swimming pool accidents, falls, medical negligence or malpractice, and dangerous or defective products (product liability).
A member of the California and Nevada bar associations, Mr. Gibson also belongs to the American Board of Trial Advocates, an organization that invites only the top trial lawyers in the country into its membership. The American Board of Trial Advocates has as its mission the protection of all Americans’ right to a trial by jury.
