As a Bay Area consumer safety and wrongful death attorney, June’s dedication to her clients and her professionalism stem from the responsibility she feels when she is entrusted with her client’s only opportunity to secure his or her future. She feels the client’s case is the client’s only opportunity to be made whole, and her clients are depending on her to do it. June’s client-centered focus shines in every case she handles.
June completed her private school education on the east coast graduating from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and Widener University School of Law in Pennsylvania in 1991 and 1995 respectively. She completed several internships, including one in the Maryland Governor’s Office, and another in the Appellate Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. After law school, June relocated to San Francisco, and was admitted to the California Bar in 1997. She began her career doing insurance coverage litigation. In 1999, June joined Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn. She just began her 20th year with the firm representing plaintiffs.
San Francisco consumer safety and wrongful death attorney June P. Bashant has established a reputation for her work in representing individuals injured by the careless conduct and choices of others. Her practice focus is serious catastrophic injuries occurring in the workplace, on the highways, or caused by unsafe conditions of premises, substandard medical care, elder abuse, and defective products such as pharmaceuticals or medical devices. June’s work on behalf of her clients has resulted in improved safety standards and consumer protections – leveling the playing field when powerful corporations act irresponsibly or negligently.
June has successfully resolved cases with six, seven and eight-figure settlements ranging from wrongful death to catastrophic injury including birth injuries, from elder abuse, auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, product defects, and auto defects. June has also arbitrated and tried cases to verdict. She has also lead groups of attorneys litigating matters involving consolidated actions, multi-plaintiff litigation, and federal multi-district litigation.
June was an Executive Board Member of the San Francisco Trial Lawyer’s Association (“SFTLA”) through 2015. She remains an active member of the SFTLA, American Association for Justice (“AAJ”), and the Consumer Attorneys of California. June has also been profiled in Diablo Magazine. Advocating for consumer safety, fairness, and the personal security of her clients are the hallmarks of her practice.
