Girardi and Keese is a Los Angeles, California-based law firm that was established in 1965 by partners Thomas Girardi and Robert Keese.

Girardi and Keese is known for representing plaintiffs in lawsuits against major corporations, including Pacific Gas & Electric, El Paso Gas, Sempra Energy, Exxon, Shell, Unocal, Dupont, Ashland, Ford Motor Company, The Walt Disney Company, and Farmers Insurance.

According to the organization's website:

"Perhaps most fundamental to the history of Girardi & Keese is our consistent ability throughout the years to obtain the highest recoveries possible for our wronged clients. We have been involved in some of the most groundbreaking cases in recent legal history, beginning in 1970 with the first million-dollar verdict in a medical malpractice case in California and continuing on with the $1.9 billion settlement obtained on behalf of California consumers for the fraud committed by energy companies.

Donations to ballot campaigns


Girardi and Keese donated $225,000 in support of California Proposition 93 (2008).


In 2004, Girardi and Keese gave $50,000 to the unsuccessful effort to defeat California Proposition 64 (2004).[1]
