Attorney Adrianna Paige brings to Silver & Wright impressive legal skills gained from years of experience representing individuals, businesses and public entities.
Ms. Paige attended the University of California at San Diego, majoring in political science. She went on to earn her Juris Doctorate from California Western School of Law where she was a scholarship recipient, and a member of the Law Review, serving on the Editorial Board of the International Law Journal.
After working for several years at an insurance defense firm representing businesses and individuals in premises and product liability cases, she was introduced to the area of government entity defense. She joined a successful firm in downtown Los Angeles and began defending the County of Los Angeles and its Sheriff’s Department. She chose to continue her career with a focus on government entity defense, representing various counties and cities.
“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve tried to help people who needed someone to stand up for them,” said Ms. Paige. “It may seem counterintuitive, but law enforcement officers and public servants need someone on their side too. They sometimes have thankless, dangerous jobs—especially in today’s environment—and need the ability to do those jobs. I’m thrilled that at Silver & Wright I have the opportunity to continue doing the work I love, while working alongside a great group of really smart people.”
Ms. Paige’s career has been dedicated to the defense of various cities and counties in both state and federal court, handling all aspects of police liability, constitutional law, civil rights, medical malpractice and other tort claims and litigated cases. Further, she has successfully authored several appellate briefs and writs over her career.
As a skilled communicator, Ms. Paige is able to explain complex legal concepts to clients and witnesses, work closely with experts on case development, and maintain relationships with clients and key decision makers through reporting, meetings and daily contact.
She is admitted to the United States District Court for the Central, Southern and Northern Districts, as well as the Court of Appeal, 9th Circuit.
In her free time, Ms. Paige enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering in local schools, and being near the ocean. She appreciates the firm’s warm and friendly culture, as well as the use of technology that supports the firm’s efficiency.
“We are a team at Silver & Wright, and we are very excited to have Adriana join our team,” said Founding Partner Curtis Wright. “I particularly appreciate her tremendous experience representing officers in civil rights defense litigation. Her talents will prove invaluable as we grow our new practice sector defending law enforcement from vicious attacks for performing a noble and dangerous public service.”
Silver & Wright LLP specializes in providing effective, efficient, and responsive legal services to public agencies through receiverships, nuisance abatement, code enforcement, police services and general public agency litigation.
