  • Biography

    Evgenia Terehova is Senior Counsel in the Orange County office of GRSM and is a member of the Commercial Litigation and Product & General Liability practice groups. She has experience representing individuals, businesses, and insurance companies while handling cases related to high exposure personal injury claims, product liability, premises liability matters, multi-party disputes and business litigation matters. Her experience of representing both defendants and plaintiffs during mediations and trials prior to joining GRSM enables her to bring a more comprehensive perspective with regard to case strategy. She has taken plentiful depositions, worked up cases for mediations and trials, participated in trials and resolved challenging claims. 

    She focuses on building evidentiary leverage at the early stage of case development by taking key depositions and consulting with selected experts to explore opponents’ weaknesses with regard to both liability and damages. Evgenia is committed to maximizing outcomes for her clients and to finding the most effective and cost-efficient approaches to case handling. She enjoys getting to know her clients and working with them toward achieving a successful case resolution. 

    She graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Business Administration from California State University Northridge. After completing her undergraduate study, she pursued her legal education at Pepperdine University School of Law. While in law school, she was a member of the Advocate Honors Trial Program participating in trial competitions and was an editor of the Journal of the National Association of the Administrative Law Judiciary. She also participated in the school’s Moot Court competitions and won the Best Advocate award during her third year. 

    Evgenia has been licensed and admitted to practice in the State of California and in the Central District of California since 2008.

  • Representative Experience

    Ms. Terehova resolved a claim involving a mother alleging significant orthopedic injuries and her child, who was a fetus at the time of the accident and who attributed a traumatic brain injury to the collision. The matter settled for an amount substantially under the policy limits as a result of developing evidence that demonstrated that the mother’s injuries were minor in nature and there was a disconnect between the child’s alleged brain injury and the timing of the accident.

    Ms. Terehova has also resolved various claims involving significant traumatic brain injury and spinal injury claims in the face of policy limit demands for amounts significantly less than the limits.
