About Me

I have been practicing law since 1979.  In that time I have gained a lot of pride in representing people who need my help to fight for their cause. 


 


I handle very complex cases including aviation disasters, brain and spine injury cases and other highly technical issues.  These types of cases take knowledge and dedication in order to achieve successful results.  


 


I am a pilot and have taught Aviation Law at California State University.  During my career I have helped my clients to settle their cases before they ever see a courtroom and I have fought tooth and nail for them during complex trials.

    I served as co-counsel with Patrick on a multi-million dollar international arbitration. Patrick is highly skilled at all aspects of complex litigation, from depositions to hearings to strategy. And he's a great guy to boot! I highly recommend him.

  • James Frank Pokorny

    I endorse this lawyer. I endorse this lawyer. I met Mr. Bailey many years ago when he was opposing counsel in an aviation accident case. He was a very knowledgeable lawyer and a highly skilled adversary. Since then we have worked on cases together and I have come to further respect his experience and expertise. He is at the top of my list when it comes to aviation counsel in Southern California.
