Attorney Profile

Putting Clients First

A partner in our San Francisco office, Fabrice N. Vincent is a tireless and principled advocate for the injured and the families of loved ones who died in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Mr. Vincent's cases include aviation accidents, auto and recreational vehicle accidents, cases arising from defective infant and consumer products, dangerous prescription drugs, and faulty medical devices. His practice also includes cases involving environmental toxic exposures, medical malpractice, and international and human rights violations.

In many of the cases Mr. Vincent has prosecuted, he has assisted our clients in persuading the corporate defendants to issue recalls or improve their safety procedures for the protection of all consumers and patients.

Mr. Vincent played a pivotal role in the firm’s representation of patients injured by the diet drugs fenfluramine (sold as Pondimin) and dexfenfluramine (sold as Redux) which resulted in a $4.75 billion settlement for those who developed cardiac valve damage or the often fatal condition of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension after taking Pondimin or Redux. He successfully represented scores of injured patients in individual lawsuits.

Mr. Vincent has been recognized by Super Lawyers magazine as a Northern California Super Lawyer for the past five years, and has written extensively on current issues in litigation, including co-editing California Class Actions Practice and Procedures from 2003-2006.
