Jude Basile has obtained numerous 7, 8 and 9 figure jury verdicts. His unique method of preparation and trial has been developed over many years of success. Jude personally handles each case and accepts very few each year to allow him to become closely involved with understanding the wrong that has been suffered.

about our experience

experience makes the difference

One of six children who’s family ran a small tavern in Western Pennsylvania, Jude lived and understood the common man. He saw how regular people were often taken advantage of by corporations, insurance companies and the government. After attending college on a football scholarship to play quarterback, he attended law school in California.

Jude Basile has been lead counsel in more than 75 jury trials. His entire career has been devoted to trial practice. He began using focus groups in the 1980’s long before it became popular. He developed a method of trial preparation in the 1990’s of using scene setting, role reversal, reflective listening, encounter, role training and sociodrama. Many lawyers claim to be trial lawyers but seldom go to trial and rarely achieve significant results.
Jude is sought after by other lawyers to share his experience and co counsel on cases. Jude has obtained one of the largest wrongful death verdicts in the history of California. He has an 8 figure verdict against the San Diego Police Department for excessive force. His trial results surpass many if not most of lawyers that claim to be “trial lawyers”

client-focused service

“Jude exemplifies all that an attorney should be. He firmly believes right and wrong should not be decided by which party has the most money. Jude is all about righting wrong and protecting the innocent from the powerful and unscrupulous. We were much more than satisfied with the service we were provided and a settlement that was beyond any expectations. You could not find a more dedicated, knowledgeable and professional representative.”
