Stephen A. King is considered by many to be the most authentic and accomplished trial lawyer of his generation. In less than fifteen years of practice Stephen has tried over 100 jury trials to verdict. He has extensive courtroom experience representing victims of serious injuries as well as those subjected to civil rights violations. Stephen was involved as a trial lawyer in obtaining the largest non-economic damages verdict in Riverside County of $40 million in 2015. Some of Stephen’s other recent successes include a record-setting $3.1 million verdict against the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for a lady who’s fifteen months old baby was unlawfully seized without a warrant and a $1.1 million verdict for First Amendment violations against the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
Stephen has served as an instructor at Trojan Horse Method since its inception and delivers keynote addresses on THM’s revolutionary approach to voir dire, cross examination and damages. Other lawyers, faced with low settlement offers regularly bring Stephen into their cases just before trial. Stephen is relentless in trials yet he prides himself on being conscientious and empathetic when working with clients and their families. This all formulates into a well founded equation when it comes to his ability to help juries find the truth and deliver justice for the injured. He actively tries all types of Civil Rights and Civil Litigation cases.
Today, Stephen serves as an executive committee member of the John Langston Bar Association and has previously served on the executive board of the California Association of Black Lawyers and the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Litigation Section. He is also an active member of the Consumer Association of Attorneys of Los Angeles, the American Association of Justice, the National Police Accountability Project, the National Bar Association, and the UCLA Alumni Association.
Stephen’s community endeavors include assisting in programs geared towards “at-risks” youths and disadvantaged adults including the mentally ill, the homeless, the impoverished and others who are frequently alienated or overlooked by society.
