Honoring Those We’ve Lost
Your loved ones, homes, and businesses hold immeasurable value. We recognize the significance of preserving their memory and your legacy. By seeking accountability from those responsible, we strive to bring about positive change, honoring the lives and dreams of those who are no longer with us.
A Proven Record of Advocacy and Success
In collaboration with our Hawaiian (Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher) and Washington (Keller Rohrback L.L.P.) partners, we all have a track record of achieving meaningful results. Notably, in 2023, Stoll Berne and Keller Rohrback successfully took PacifiCorp and Pacific Power to trial for the 2020 Oregon wildfires, pursuing individual claims that resulted in millions of dollars in compensation to wildfire victims.
Our team’s commitment to justice extends beyond wildfires. Our partners Starn O’Toole Marcus & Fisher played a significant role in leading Hawaii’s recovery efforts in 2016 during the Hepatitis A outbreak involving Genki Sushi. Through their dedicated efforts, they helped injured individuals obtain justice and recoveries, leading the way in addressing this public health crisis.

Stoll Berne is experienced at holding energy companies accountable in wildfire litigation. Recently, Stoll Berne was appointed as co-lead counsel to represent survivors of a series of fires caused by the utility PacifiCorp over the Labor Day 2020 weekend in Oregon. Stoll Berne and their co-counsels’ work ultimately resulted in a jury verdict finding PacifiCorp liable to the class of survivors of four fires and awarded a combined $90 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the 17 plaintiffs appointed to represent the class. When factoring in the damages available to the class, it would be the largest civil jury verdict in Oregon history.
