My name is Henry Pan, I grew up in Southern California in Laguna Niguel as the son of Taiwanese immigrants. Thanks to them I am bilingual and can also speak Mandarin Chinese. I attended college at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where I studied a variety of topics including philosophy, structural engineering and music but ultimately received a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in political science/public law. After UCSD I decided to go to law school and was accepted into Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. I was surprised and happy to learn that I could earn an additional Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at Loyola Marymount University in Marina Del Rey at the same time I was pursuing my Juris Doctor (JD). I graduated law school in 2011 with both a JD and MBA.
With fresh degrees in hand and having just passed the California State Bar, I found employment with Robinson Calcagnie, Inc., a nationally renowned plaintiffs personal injury and products liability firm located in Newport Beach, there I gained invaluable experience and mentorship. Over my almost eight (8) year career there, I worked on many large multi-district litigations and class action lawsuits, including In re Toyota Motor Corp. Unintended Acceleration MDL, In re Tobacco II cases, In re Celexa and Lexapro Products Liability Litigation, In re Zoloft (Sertraline Hydrochloride) Products Liability Litigation and In re General Motors LLC Ignition Switch Litigation. I learned the logistics of how these large litigations are ran, how to manage discovery and review millions of pages of documents, the politics of national litigations, how to take depositions of high-ranking members of international corporations and ultimately how such cases are successfully settled.
In addition to these large litigations, I also found success working on individual, catastrophic personal injury cases. These cases were key in my development as an attorney. I learned how to run a case from the ground up—from pre-lawsuit settlement to post-trial lien negotiation, and everything in between. During my tenure there, I helped try and settle cases with great results, including a $2 million verdict for a worker who fell through a skylight, a $46 million verdict for a pedestrian whose leg was amputated after getting hit by a car, multiple 7-figure settlements for clients injured in automobile accidents and multiple 6-figure settlements for pedestrians hit by automobiles.
However, even though I found great success and invaluable mentorship at my previous firm, I felt a burning entrepreneurial spirit within me which required me to start my own practice. I founded Pan Law Group, Inc. in 2019 with these core guiding principles: compassion, transparency and results.
