Geoffrey T. Macbride

Associate

Geoffrey Macbride is an associate in Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney's San Francisco office. Mr. Macbride's practice emphasizes the defense of attorneys in complex malpractice actions.

Prior to joining Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney, Mr. Macbride was a legal research attorney with the Superior Court of California, County of San Francisco. There he directed ex parte hearings in both the law and motion department and master calendar department. He also prepared bench materials on pretrial and post trial motions as well as appeals.

Representative Matters

  • Obtained a complete defense verdict in favor of attorney and law firm clients after a two week trial. Despite plaintiff's alleged damages of over $30 million, the jury, which deliberated for only a day, determined that defendants representation always met the standard of care and were not liable for any wrongdoing. The case was previously tried in September 2013 and the court granted a non-suit after excluding unauthenticated hearsay evidence. The non-suit was reversed on appeal. During the pendency of the second trial, the Supreme Court issued its decision in People v. Sanchez setting forth limitations on what experts could rely on in formulating opinions.
  • Obtained a mutual release and settlement in favor of attorney and law firm clients on the eve of trial after substantial success on motions in limine. Plaintiffs abandoned their approximately $25 million claimed damages in favor of a cost waiver.

Professional and Community Contributions

Mr. Macbride is a member of the State Bar of California and a member of the Bar Association of San Francisco.
