Roger Booth graduated cum laude from Pomona College with a degree in English literature in 1997 and graduated from law school at the University of California, Berkeley in 1991. He then spent six years working as a litigation attorney at Pillsbury Madison & Sutro in San Francisco, which was then the largest law firm in California. At the Pillsbury firm, Mr. Booth played a significant role in several major trials and focused on representing policyholders in insurance bad faith cases.
In 1997, Mr. Booth joined his father, Larry Booth, at Booth & Koskoff, and he is now the managing partner of the firm. Over the past 20 years, he has handled hundreds of catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases and has achieved over 30 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or greater. This includes a $4 million verdict against the County of San Diego in a dangerous roadway case in 2012, after the County had offered just $100,000 in settlement. Mr. Booth has developed a particular expertise in sexual abuse, products liability and construction accident cases.
Mr. Booth is the co-auther of Personal Injury Handbook, published by James Publishing.
