Hunter Norton is a trial attorney with Panish | Shea | Boyle | Ravipudi LLP, specializing in representing individuals who have been victims of serious wrongdoing. His practice includes litigating catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, mass tort, and products liability cases throughout California.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Norton was an attorney at top international law firm Kirkland & Ellis where he focused his practice on litigating large scale product liability cases. He was among the first attorneys to participate in groundbreaking bellwether trials in the largest multi-district litigation in history and fought to, and successfully did, secure favorable verdicts for his clients, some of which were recognized by The American Lawyer. Mr. Norton has now taken the same skills, passion, and experience he used to defend Fortune 500 clients to the other side of the bar and dedicated his practice to fight for consumers and individuals who have been wrongfully harmed.
Mr. Norton received his J.D. and graduated magna cum laude from Duke University School of Law. While attending law school, he was a member of the mock trial team and focused his studies on developing trial advocacy and litigation skills to serve him once he became an attorney. Prior to that, Mr. Norton graduated magna cum laude from the University of Missouri, with University Honors in Political Science. During college, he also served as a congressional intern to a U.S. Senator and was a judicial intern for U.S. District Court Judge Roseann Ketchmark in the Western District of Missouri.
Originally a native of Kansas City, Missouri, Mr. Norton now resides in Los Angeles and is a member of the State Bar of California as well as the Consumer Attorneys Association of California (CAALA). In his free time, he enjoys live music, exploring new places, reading spy novels, and rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs.
