About Me


In a legal career spanning almost 20 years, Roger Booth has handled many large, complex cases, representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and both individuals and corporations, throughout California and the United States. Since 1997, he has focused on representing people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or the loss of a loved one.


Mr. Booth graduated with honors from Pomona College in 1987. He spent a semester during his senior year of college studying at Oxford University in England. He went on to attend Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California - Berkeley, graduating in 1991. Mr. Booth then went on to work as an attorney at Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro (then the largest law firm in California) in San Francisco, where he handled a variety of large, complex business litigation and insurance bad faith matters. During his time at the Pillsbury firm, Mr. Booth took a leave of absence to work at the San Francisco Public Defender’s office, where he gained valuable jury trial experience representing criminal defendants.


In 1997, Mr. Booth joined his father, Larry Booth, at Booth & Koskoff and quickly made his mark as a plaintiff’s attorney. In 1998, in just his second personal injury trial, he (along with Richard Koskoff) obtained a $1.6 million verdict in Orange County, setting a record for a hand injury case in that courthouse. That result generated a great deal of attention in the legal press. [Article PDF] Since then, Mr. Booth has handled more than 20 cases that have resulted in verdicts or settlement in excess of $1,000,000. In 2009 and 2010, he was named a “Super Lawyer,” an honor limited to the top 5% of attorneys in Southern California.

  • Greg Thomas Hill

    I strongly endorse Roger. He has great experience from a large, multi-national law firm that trained him to the highest standards and then he worked for his father, one of the best (if not the best) personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles. But Roger is not just standing on his dad's shoulders. He has authored a well-received treatise on personal injury law and received the highest verdict (after jury trial) in Orange County on a hand injury case. He also settled on his own some very large train accident cases and automobile product liability cases, after tangling with some of the best defense attorneys in the country. Roger is quickly establishing his own reputation separate and apart from his father (and perhaps even better).
