Now, facing the unprecedented Lahaina Fire catastrophe, Davis Levin Livingston has teamed up with the best wildfire lawyers in the country: Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP of Los Angeles and Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, the oldest plaintiffs’ firm in San Francisco. The Panish and Walkup law firms were the lead counsel in the major California wildfire cases, recovering well over a billion dollars for their clients. Together, these three law firms bring unparalleled experience, resources, and commitment to the challenging task of establishing accountability for the devastation and suffering caused by the Lahaina Fire.

Our team already has begun a careful investigation into the cause of the fire. Our preliminary findings raise a very serious concern that the devastating Lahaina Fire resulted from negligence related to maintenance and management of the power grid. Although our investigation is in its early stages, we are committed to find answers as to how and why this tragedy happened, and to fight to make our clients whole.
