He will always be a big part of this firm.

We miss you Al.
Albert P. DiRocco, Jr. was a seasoned litigator with over 30 years’ experience litigating personal injury matters. He obtained more than 45 jury trial verdicts, including in cases involving catastrophic injuries, brain damage, and punitive damages. Mr. DiRocco received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics with a minor in Political Science from the University of California at Davis in 1980. He received his law degree in 1984 from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.
Mr. DiRocco’s work experience prior to joining the Law Brothers® gave him a unique perspective that helped him achieve successful results for injured plaintiffs. He spent most of his career with the well-respected defense-side firm of Gilbert, Kelly, Crowley & Jennett. At Gilbert Kelly, he rose through the ranks from law clerk to general partner, where he supervised 25 lawyers throughout Southern California and interfaced on a daily basis with a large, well-known insurance carrier.
Mr. DiRocco’s background gave him the unique ability to know what the defense attorney and the insurance carrier is going to think before they think it, thereby providing a huge advantage to the injured plaintiff. Mr. DiRocco thoroughly enjoyed his transformation from working with large corporate clients to fighting for the injured individual’s right to be compensated fairly for their injuries.
When he wasn’t advocating for his clients, Mr. DiRocco enjoyed cooking for his large and ever-expanding family (wife, 6 children, 2 sons-in-law, and, at current count, 8 grandchildren) and finding new wines to add to his collection. He was a native Angeleno whose family had the first commercial fishing boat registered in the City of Los Angeles back in the late 1800s. Mr. DiRocco made his home in the San Pedro Area where he was born and raised.
