Greg Bentley & Keith More, Co-Founders of Bentley & More LLP, were recognized in the 2021 Super Lawyers publication rated as Top 50 in Orange County & Top 100 in Southern California. Both Greg & Keith are  storytellers with a winning attitude and are true champions at heart. “One of the best ways to advocate for a client is to get to know them so you can tell their story. Our role is to guide clients through an uncomfortable period in their lives, often their darkest, get full compensation for their harm, and get answers as to what happened,” Bentley says. “We are a calming influence in a relationship-building process that lasts long after the case is over,” More adds.

Greg is the leading litigator on E-cigarette explosion cases throughout the nation and recently obtained a confidential eight-figure settlement on behalf of a wide range of clients injured by alleged product defects with a variety of injuries. Greg knew from an early age that he wanted to be a lawyer.

“I ‘ve always chimed in when I saw something wrong. As I grew up and argued with my parents and other adults, and did so respectfully and convincingly, people would say that I should be a lawyer. I just knew it was something I wanted to do.”

Mr. Bentley’s track record reflects a career dedicated to protecting consumers. Mr. Bentley’s fight for consumers includes leadership positions in various organizations and in 2019 Mr. Bentley was appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom to serve on the Orange County Judicial Selection Advisory Committee.

Keith has been practicing law for over 32 and still has the desire and motivation to take on the most challenging, life changing cases. He has been selected an unprecedented 4-times as the OCTLA Top Gun in Workers’ Comp.  in 2019, More arbitrated a Personal Injury & Work Comp cross-over case to the tune of 44.1 million dollars. Keith also knew from an early age that he would find a career in the law.

“I have always wanted to be a lawyer ever since I was eight years old. My parents went through a brutal divorce and from then on, I wanted to help people. I also used to stay up late and watch Perry Mason and that inspired me as well.”

Beyond the personal accolades, however, is a lawyer who cares about those he represents. For one 22 year old tetraplegic whose spinal cord injuries resulted from his unprotected fall through a sky light, attorney Keith P. More obtained a settlement of $14.7 million, the largest award in California workers’ compensation history. Over his 32 year career, Keith has taken on some of the largest corporations in the world. Besides the in court awards, Keith is most proud of his ability to connect with his clients. It’s not just about being the lawyer. It’s about being their voice and telling their story.
