CPM plays a major role in all major fire cases in California. Wildfires caused by utility negligence continue to destroy the homes and livelihoods of thousands of Californians. CPM’s wildfire team, lead by Frank Pitre, has represented hundreds of victims of California wildfires, including the Butte Fire (2015), North Bay Fires (2017), Thomas Fire (2017), Woolsey Fire (2018), Camp Fire (2018), Kincade Fire (2019), Dixie Fire (2021), Mill Fire (2022), and McKinney Fire (2022).
Following PG&E’s 2019 bankruptcy, CPM helped hundreds of families file claims with the Fire Victim Trust, the $13.5 Billion fund set up to compensate victims of the North Bay and Camp Fires. Through 2022, CPM’s clients have approved settlements totaling approximately $200 million. CPM’s wildfire team has a proven track record of achieving outstanding results for victims of all wildfires caused by public utilities and large corporations throughout the state. CPM’s wildfire team includes Frank Pitre, Duffy Magilligan, Julie Fieber, John Thyken, and Nabilah Hossain.
