Rising Stars recognizes exceptional attorneys who are either 40 years old or younger or have been in practice for 10 years or less. Attorneys are nominated by their peers and carefully selected after independent research into their experience, achievements, and results for clients. No more than 2.5% of California lawyers are named to this list.
Together, Khail and Eric have obtained hundreds of millions in verdicts and settlements within the last two years. In 2021, the team obtained a $141 million award for a man who suffered life-changing injuries in a catastrophic T-bone style accident caused by a distracted driver. This award was later recognized as California’s largest personal injury verdict in 2021.
Additionally, Khail and Eric played pivotal roles in obtaining a $49.6 million verdict last year for a CHP officer rear-ended while riding his motorcycle on duty. This result was the fourth-largest personal injury verdict in California in 2021, and the second-largest verdict for the victim of a vehicle accident.
Khail A. Parris and Eric N. Wilson’s other results for clients include a $56.5 million victory for two brothers injured in a head-on car crash and a $13 million settlement for a woman injured by a negligent worker in a Tesla factory.
Most recently, Khail and Eric went to trial on behalf of a man severely injured in a car accident in Santa Clarita. The defense offered a $370,000 settlement on the eve of trial, and another high-low settlement agreement with a maximum amount of $5 million on the eve of closing. The PARRIS team rejected both of these offers outright. After Khail and Eric fought for their client in court, a jury awarded their client $9.6 million.
Both Khail A. Parris and Eric N. Wilson are fearless fighters that embody the best of the legal profession. Though both have been in practice for less than a decade, the two have transformed countless lives with the incredible results they secure for clients.
Join us in congratulating Khail and Eric for their incredible work!
