Biography

The Hon. Frederick C. Shaller is a judge for the Los Angeles County Superior Court in California. He was appointed to the bench in September of 2003 by former Governor Gray Davis. He filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Marilyn Hoffman (Ret.).

Judge Shaller graduated with his B.A. in English Literature from the University of Southern California. He went on to earn his J.D. from Loyola Law School in 1979.

Shaller began his legal career as an attorney for the Redondo Beach law firm of Kirtland and Packard in 1979. During his three years with the firm, Shaller practiced insurance defense. He then joined the law firm of Harvey, Wolfe, Pagliuso, Shaller, and Carr as a partner in 1982 where he continued litigating insurance cases.

His areas of practice for the firm included medical malpractice and personal injury cases.

In 1988, Shaller became a partner and founder of the law firm of Carr and Shaller until 1991 when he became a sole practitioner. He remained in private practice where he practiced health care law from 1991 to 2003. In June of 2003, Shaller became the founder and partner for the law firm of Shaller, McMillan, and Wright. He was serving in that capacity at the time of his appointment to the Superior Court in September of that same year.

Judge Shaller's memberships have included the American Board of Trial Advocates, the California Judges Association, as well as the California Bar Association.
