Senior Counsel

Languages Spoken: English

John McCarty is a veteran trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, having represented both employers and workers. While he started out as a defense lawyer in the first five years of his career, he saw greater potential to help workers who have been wronged. In 1993, he became a plaintiffs' attorney fighting to seek justice for employees.

McCarty said he derives great satisfaction from being a passionate advocate representing and upholding the rights of those who have been unlawfully subjected to mistreatment in the workplace.

"What really motivates me is my ability as a lawyer to be able to help those who have been hurt, abused, harassed, discriminated against, retaliated against, and wrongfully terminated," he said. "It is gratifying to know that the law gives us a way not just to help those who have been wronged, but to also hold those who have committed those wrongs accountable."


Over the last three decades, McCarty has litigated hundreds of insurance bad faith cases, wage and hour, whistleblower, failure to accommodate, and other cases against large corporations.

Among his career highlights is his involvement in the toxic tort cases led by Erin Brockovich that inspired an Oscar-winning movie. McCarty was also the lead lawyer on the toxic tort Clark Foam wrongful death case that took the surfing world by storm. In addition, he has handled elder abuse, medical malpractice, construction defects, sexual abuse, and other types of personal injury and business litigation matters.
