Adam J. Levitt and Robert F. “Bobby” DiCello Recognized as 2020 “Trailblazers” By The National Law Journal

Recognized for their work as “truly agents of change,” The National Law Journal announced Co-Founding Partner Adam J. Levitt and Partner Robert F. “Bobby DiCello in its fourth annual list of Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Trailblazers.

Co-Founding Partner Adam J. Levitt has blazed trails for more than 25 years as a leader in providing advocacy for victims. A recognized “first of firsts,” he formulated and filed the earliest internet privacy cases in the U.S. and resolved precedent setting biotech cases, including serving as co-lead counsel for three of the largest biotech class actions in history by recovering more than $1.7 billion for plaintiffs. In Levitt’s words, “DiCello Levitt Gutzler is a trial firm. With our in-house focus group and mock jury practice we are the only plaintiffs’ firm with such a resource.”

Partner Bobby DiCello was recognized for leading one of the largest civil rights verdicts in U.S. history when he successfully represented Arnold Black, who was beaten by police and locked in a storage closet for several days before finally being put in jail. Securing a $22 million jury verdict, later overturned on procedural grounds, Bobby ultimately received a $50 million verdict for his client. States Bobby, “An ironic part of my work is that I’ve developed a lot of relationships with good law enforcement agents and have also been invited to discussions by police departments. It’s created an opportunity to create a dialogue on both sides and demonstrate that the courthouse may still be a good place to effect change.”
