About

Eileen is co-chair of the firm’s class action litigation practice group and a member of the product liability and appellate practice groups. Eileen specializes in defending California and nationwide consumer class actions alleging violations of California’s Unfair Competition and False Advertising Laws, and other consumer claims.

She also has significant experience litigating a wide range of other complex commercial matters, and has represented clients in a cross-section of industries, including consumer products, technology, telecommunications, financial services, utilities, and automotive.

Eileen was named by Benchmark Litigation as “Litigation Star” from 2018-2020 and as one of the “Top Women Attorneys in Southern California” 2013-2017 by Super Lawyers. Eileen was recognized in 2015 for securing one of the “Top 20 Defense Verdicts” by Daily Journal, and her notable victories include a 2016 defeat of a class certification motion in a high-stakes consumer class action, as well as a successful 2017 motion to dismiss on forum non conveniens grounds, which has potentially case-dispositive implications for the parties in a product liability action alleging permanent, catastrophic injuries.
