    More About Attorney Mark Algorri

    Attorney Mark Algorri is a founding partner of DAA and was born in Los Angeles and raised in Arcadia, CA.

    He graduated from UCLA in 1976 and obtained his J.D. in 1979 from the University of San Fernando Valley College of Law. While at UCLA, at the age of 22, Mark managed and produced rock-and-roll bands, including Van Halen. His days with Van Halen have been chronicled in Greg Renoff’s recent bestselling book, Van Halen Rising. After law school, Mark joined Louis DeWitt’s Century City based criminal defense trial firm where he began trying criminal jury trials. 

    By the middle 1980’s, Mark, who was now a partner with DeWitt, began focusing on complicated plaintiff’s personal injury cases, including catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. As early as 1990, he received his first million dollar plus jury verdict ( $1.4 million for three amputated fingers) in a product liability industrial accident. Mark followed up with other numerous, successful multi-million dollar verdicts, including a $2.9 million verdict for a crushed foot from falling tree branch; a $3 million judgment against Mercury Insurance for bad faith insurance practices; $4.75 million against the Cal Trans after verdict for liability of a dangerous road design; 10 Million dollar verdict against Farmers Insurance for bad faith insurance practices; $19 million verdict for injuries in a freeway motor vehicle accident; $25 million verdict for injuries in a motor vehicle accident.

    In addition, Mark has gained for his clients many large money settlements including over $4.5 million for police misconduct over $40 million for toxic contamination, in addition to numerous other multi-million dollar settlement for general personal injury and wrongful death claims. Many of these verdicts and settlements have been against the biggest and most aggressive industry titans, such as Ford Motor Co., General Motors Corporation, Cooper Tire Co., Farmers Insurance Co., and Mercury Insurance Co. In 2016, Mark was also trial counsel in Barickman v Mercury Insurance Co, a significant 4th District Court of Appeal case that created important insurance bad faith law.  Mark has now tried over 75 cases to verdict in both state and federal courts, including criminal cases.
