The results Genie Harrison has obtained speak for themselves – both the compensation obtained for her clients and the systemic change she has created to benefit thousands who will never know her name, but whose lives are better as a result of her work.
Genie has been acknowledged with rare distinction: she has been named to the Southern California Super Lawyers List in Plaintiff’s Employment litigation for twelve years in a row (2009-2020), for which only 5% of all attorneys in the state qualify in any single year.
Remarkably, for five years in a row, 2016-2020, Genie Harrison has been listed on the list of Top 10 Southern California Super Lawyers, Top 100 Southern California Super Lawyers and Top 50 Women Southern California Super Lawyers.
She is also one of only two women lawyers in the state of California named by the Daily Journal as one of the state’s Top Labor & Employment Lawyers for eleven years (2009-2013, 2015-2020). She has been listed by the Daily Journal as one of the Top Women Lawyers in California from 2018-2019. In 2018, Genie was recognized by the Daily Journal as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California — across all categories of law.
She has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America since 2012, as has her law firm, for her work in Plaintiff’s Employment Litigation. And she has been recognized by Lawdragon as one of the Top 500 Employment Lawyers in the Country since 2018.
Genie gives back each year teaching litigation and trial skills to other lawyers through her volunteer work on boards and committees of various trial lawyer organizations, and through publishing articles locally and nationally. Besides publishing articles for leading attorney resources, Genie is a monthly columnist for Ms. Magazine.
