Margarite is an accomplished litigator with experience representing individuals, corporations, public entities, and insurance institutions across California.
Margarite has successfully resolved a variety of cases involving personal injury, inverse condemnation, and class action disputes. She frequently resolves matters promptly with well-drafted dispositive motions or protects her clients with oppositions thereto. When a trucking company attempted to avoid litigation by claiming that its employees were independent contractors, she was able to establish vicarious liability and force a favorable settlement for a client. A daunting class-action matter was defused when Margarite successfully decertified a class of plaintiffs claiming exposure to volatile organic compounds.
