About Filippo

Learn Filippo’s areas of practice.


Filippo Marchino was born in Turin, Italy into a family with a rich history of car racing and athleticism. He was taught as a child that success is the benefit of hard work and dedication. He had the privilege of attending a small International school, studying English, French and, of course, his native language Italian, making him tri-lingual by the young age of 10.

Following high school, Filippo moved to the U.S. to attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL. He graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Aerospace Engineering in 2002 and subsequently, with honors, with his Masters of Science in Aerospace Engineering in May 2005. He then attended Southwestern University School of Law, where he graduated with honors, top 10% of his class, in May 2008. In addition, during law school, he earned a Certificate in Dispute Resolution from the Straus Institute of the Pepperdine University School of Law.



As a practicing attorney, Filippo's practice is mainly split between cases involving catastrophic injury and cases involving business and consumer fraud. The vast majority of his cases are, and have been, Plaintiff side work.

As a trial attorney, boosting a very high rate of success, Filippo obtained the largest jury verdict in California in 2017, with a verdict in excess of $454 million dollars. In 2019 he resolved a five year case, stemming from the Venice Beach Boardwalk accident of 2013, for a comprehensive $60.38 million dollars. Additionally, his accomplishments encompass several class action approved settlements including the Powerbalance litigation, with a combined value in excess of $68 million dollars. For his other clients, Filippo has secured in excess of $60 million in actual recovery.  



Filippo's work has been recognized internationally. Some of the most recent accolades iunclude:

  • Trial Lawyer of the Year - 2018: PUBLIC JUSTICE
  • California Top 10 Personal Injury Lawyers - 2016/2017/2018: 
  • National Top 40 under 40 - 2017/2018/2019: 
  • World Top 100 Law Practices - 2016



Apart from Filippo’s academic endeavors, he has always been drawn to adventures that combine his love of competitive sports, with his lust for adrenaline. Racing, a family tradition, has been a large part of Filippo’s life since childhood. Another passion of Filippo's, snowboarding, has seen him conquer eight national championships in the last ten years.

In addition, over the last few years, Filippo has volunteered countless hours to the Los Angeles Domestic Violence Project, helping numerous adults and children victims of domestic violence and in need of legal help.

Intelligent, Experienced, Capable!
The attorneys at The X-Law Group, led by Attorney Filippo Marchino, are highly intelligent, very experienced, and capable of analyzing and executing complicated legal strategies. I have worked with a wide range of Los Angeles lawyers, and time and again I have been disappointed. Thankfully, this is not the case at X-Law and I highly recommend you work with them if you need an LA attorney.

Very professional, intelligent and dedicated
Mr.Marchino has been of incredible help and support to me through my bad times after the accident. Thank to his knowledge in this field and his inquisitive approach and passion for what he does, he was able to help me obtaining a reimbursement for all the necessary medical attention needed after the accident. His staff was very helpful and always kept me informed on all the progresses throughout the case. I would definitely recommend his law firm assistance to anyone for any matters. I've found his extremely positive approach combined with his knowledge to be very reassuring of a successful outcome of the case.

Filippo has proved to be a strong attorney and great at complex cases.
Filippo Marchino has shown his ability time and time again with my case. I can't express my gratitude for all the work and care that he as demonstrated on my behalf. My case is very complex and Filippo and his team have fought hard to get to the bottom of this case. I appreciate it more than I can write here.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Marchino was extremely professional, courteous and concerned. He is extremely intelligent and I feel fortunate to have had him on my side. It is rare to meet people who have passion for what they do, and who are subsequently very good at what they do... Filippo Marchino is one of these unusual individuals. He is tenacious and very dedicated to his trade, and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a bright, inquisitive and very knowledgable attorney.
