Nancy Hersh, Partner

Nancy shared the practice with her father LeRoy for over 30 years. Together they built a firm based on essential values that continue to this day. Nancy’s accomplishments are recognized by both her clients and her peers. She received the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association Lifetime Achievement Award in April 2010, an honor that had never before been awarded to a woman trial lawyer. This award reflects Nancy’s career and accomplishments in helping those injured and those who otherwise would have no voice.

Throughout her career Nancy has been a passionate advocate, using the law to address women’s healthcare issues and other areas of social justice. As one of the first woman personal injury lawyers she combines tenacity, determination, and empathy for her clients. These attributes are essential as she has tackled a series of groundbreaking cases including DES Litigation, the first breast implant case to establish the connection between silicone and physical injuries, and the first Diet Drug (Fen-Phen) case filed and settled.

Mark E. Burton, Jr., Partner

I started as an associate at Hersh & Hersh in 1998 and have been a partner since July 2004. I have managed, prepared, and handled a diverse group of personal injury matters, including employment cases: wage & hour, harassment cases, and pharmaceuticals, medical devices, motor vehicle collisions, and medical malpractice cases. I have a deep background in mass tort litigation, such as Zyprexa and Defibrillators/Pacemakers.

Insurance Companies, Corporations and Doctors have more money, they have more attorneys and they have far more political influence. The only reason that we are able to prevail on behalf of their victims is because justice is on our side. As long as these corporations continue to value profit over the rights and safety of the public, I will do my part to bring justice to the injured consumers I am so privileged to serve.

I live in Nicasio Valley, Marin County with my wife and two young boys. My boys are avid baseball players. I spend time outside of the law coaching their team, maintaining the baseball field and working around the ranch in Nicasio.

Charles C. Kelly II., Partner

I am a partner at Hersh & Hersh and have practiced law with Hersh & Hersh since 2002, handling catastrophic injury cases in diverse areas of law including premises liability, product liability, and general negligence.In 2008, I was a finalist for the Consumer Attorneys of California’s Trial Lawyer of the Year award for my work on Johns v. Simplicity, Inc., which resulted in the largest infant crib recall in history. The case was covered by the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post. My clients and I also appeared on the CBS Morning Show with Connie Chung.

I enjoy challenges both in and out of the courtroom. I ski, paddle board, hike and mountain climb. I have two adult children. I live in Marin County and can be found around Fairfax on most weekends walking my two dogs, Melanie and Kali, and hanging out with the neighbors.For commentary, legal news and trends you can follow me on twitter @sfpilaw.
