Asbestos Plaintiff Counsel Runs for California Legislature

Asbestos plaintiffs’ counsel Simona Farrise recently announced she is running for California’s 62nd Assembly District. California’s 62nd State Assembly District is one of 80 California State Assembly districts. It is currently represented by Democrat Steven Bradford of Gardena. The district encompasses the southern part of the Westside and the northern South Bay region, reaching from South Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. Heavily urban and ethnically diverse, the district is centered around Los Angeles International Airport. This district is reportedly 60.75 percent Democratic, 13.92 percent Republican and 16.30 percent with no party preference.

For several years, Farrise worked with the Kazan office in Oakland.  However, in 2007, she founded the Farrise Firm, P.C. The firm was started in California with offices in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Illinois. She has been active in the asbestos litigation for many years and has successfully tried several cases to verdict.

Farrise’s campaign website states that, “I’ve built a successful career … fighting for working men and women, seniors, veterans, access to education and justice against well-funded opposition. I’ve stood up to polluters and fought for our families and neighborhoods over and over. And I’ll do the same thing in the Assembly.”
