- Public Entity & High Exposure Civil Litigation
Experienced • Responsive • Thorough
Ross Nott has been an attorney with Spinelli, Donald, and Nott for 25 years. Ross handles civil matters, trials and appeals involving unique, novel and/or complex legal issues, and substantial damage claims.
Ross initially started practicing law with the venerable Los Angeles plaintiff personal injury firm Girardi and Keese handling complex litigation, trials, and appeals before coming to Sacramento in 1995.
Since then, he has remained at the firm becoming a shareholder in 2000. Over the course of his more than 25 years of litigation experience, Ross has often been called upon to take over cases prior to trial when the exposure of the suit has become too much for other counsel to effectively handle. Representing clients ethically and aggressively, he has been able to provide successful representation for his clients obtaining favorable settlements or trial outcomes.
When handling a case from the outset, Ross is able to obtain key summary judgment rulings disposing of cases, orchestrates favorable settlements due to the preparation of the matter demonstrating the strength of the defense, and is always prepared to present his clients’ positions in trial, arbitration, and appeal when necessary to resolve the case.
Ross has 1st chair jury trial experience in sexual harassment, employment, insurance coverage and bad faith, spinal cord and brain injury, and products liability cases. In addition, Ross has substantial experience representing private and public schools in matters involving sexual abuse and assault cases (teacher on student and student on student) and Title IX litigation.
