Terry O'Reilly honored by Autoweek Magazine

SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Terry O'Reilly has been named one of the "Six Top Motorsports Lawyers" in the United States by the leading motorsport's magazine, Autoweek. This is the first time the industry has honored lawyers.

The honor is unusual because O'Reilly, an enthusiastic rally driver, is a lawyer who represents consumers in trials against negligent auto manufacturers. His work on tire safety led to published SAE articles and to an industry wide change in warnings now published by all tire manufacturers. In a forty year career his work has led to recovery in the hundreds of millions for his clients and to election to the Inner Circle of Advocates, the ultimate honor for trial lawyers.

At the same time, he has been racing and collecting '50s vintage Jaguars. Beginning with long runs across the West before there were speed limits and later with entry into such events as the Mille Miglia and the Carrera Panamericana, he has carried on the tradition of amateur drivers running their cars as hard as possible.

In addition to his many successes in automotive issues, O'Reilly also has had notable success representing clients in scores of aviation disasters, ranging from small helicopter crashes up to the Concorde crash in Paris. In one recent year, he achieved settlements or verdicts in excess of $300 million. For more information, call (650) 627-7015 or visit the website: www.oreillylaw.com
