While Travis Easton is only in the initial stages of his legal career, he begins his career on a strong foundation built upon a stellar education and passion for Plaintiff's personal injury litigation. Travis received his BA in 2011 from Brigham Young University, where he majored in English. He went on to attend the University of San Diego School of Law (continually ranked one of the top 10 law schools in California) where he received his Juris Doctor and was admitted to the California Bar in 2014.
Throughout his law school career, Travis filled his time with courses intended to help further his preparation as a personal injury trial attorney. While doing so, he obtained the highest marks possible in his Oral Advocacy Skills and Negotiation courses. Additionally, he received the CALI award (an award for the top grade in the class) for his Advanced Torts course. Despite his busy schedule, Travis also worked as a Research Assistant for one of the esteemed law school professors, Michael Ramsey.
Travis' love for personal injury representation stems from his years of work for Easton & Easton (formerly Law of Offices of W. Douglas Easton) throughout his adolescent, college, and law school years. Whether it was taking calls, drafting settlement demands, or organizing medical records, Travis saw firsthand how a person's damaged life could be changed for the better through hard work and effective advocacy by the attorneys at Easton & Easton.
All of that training has led to Travis' immediate success in his first years as a practicing attorney. In his first year of practice, Travis represented a client who was referred to Easton & Easton by another attorney who had only been able to acquire a $24,000 settlement offer in the case. After taking over the matter, remedying the problems that led to the insurance company's meager prior offer, and then persuasively advocating the matter to the insurance company, Travis was able to acquire the full $200,000 policy limits for his grateful client.
More recently, Travis represented a client who was riding a bullet bike that collided into two other vehicles. The client did not believe he caused the accident, but he could only remember that he was driving straight along the roadway prior to the accident. Unfortunately, based upon several false witness statements, the investigating officer had found our client at fault for the collision. Through hard work and successful advocacy, Travis was able to convince both of the other vehicles' insurance companies that the investigating officer was incorrect in his assessment. Both of the other drivers' insurance companies eventually offered their collective policy limits of $150,000.
Helping clients like these has become a passion for Travis that drives him to obtain justice for those that have been seriously injured. This passion was recently recognized by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys who recently chose him as one of the "10 Best" Personal Injury Attorneys for California based on Client Satisfaction.
Like his father and brothers, Travis took two years off from college to serve as a missionary for his church in Tijuana, Mexico. While serving the people in Tijuana, Travis fell in love with the Hispanic people and their culture (especially the food). Travis continues to have a strong commitment to serving others. He volunteered during law school as a basketball coach for two years for the youth in his church congregation. Travis is an Eagle Scout and now volunteers with the youth at the church congregation he attends.
While in college, Travis married his beautiful sweetheart, Whitney, who has incessantly supported his desire to become an attorney. They recently had their first child, William Scott Easton, and Travis is loving fatherhood. Travis also loves to participate in all types of sports and outdoor activities, including crossfit, basketball, baseball, golf, surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and waterskiing.
