Jarrett S. Charo
Bio

Jarrett began his legal career as an associate at a large, multinational products liability and business litigation firm. He then served as a Deputy District Attorney with the San Diego County District Attorney's Office where he gained invaluable trial experience successfully prosecuting a variety of criminal cases.

After leaving the District Attorney's Office, Jarrett joined one of the nation's top-rated plaintiff's securities litigation firms. While there, he helped defrauded investors recover over $100 million from large corporations, banks and other financial institutions.

Since joining Thorsnes Bartolotta in 2012, Jarrett has focused on personal injury and consumer class action cases. He has helped the families of loved ones lost in trucking, bus, and maritime collisions obtain tens of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. He has also helped numerous clients injured due to auto collisions, defective products, and unsafe property conditions. 

In 2017, he—along with other attorneys of the firm—obtained one of the top three toxic tort verdicts in California as well as one of the top 100 personal injury verdicts in the State. Jarrett's work on consumer class actions has resulted in defrauded Californians recovering millions of dollars from various corporate wrongdoers. 

Jarrett is admitted to practice in all California and New York state courts.
