A Bay Area consumer safety and wrongful death attorney, June’s client-centered focus is dedicated to providing the emotional support and resources her clients need to restore security to their lives following a catastrophic injury.
June P. Bashant has established a 20-year reputation for her hard work representing individuals injured by the careless conduct and choices of others. Most recently, June and her partner John Feder recovered $20 million for the wrongful death of a young professional who was exposed to a dangerous virus while staying at a hotel on vacation. June also recovered $3.7 million in a hit and run automobile collision where her client was thrown from his motor scooter and suffered severe debilitating injuries requiring extended hospitalization and rehabilitation.
