Originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Attorney Staesha Rath came to the U.S. after earning her Bachelor of Social Sciences in Political Science and Government from the University of Ottawa. She then moved to New York City to study law at New York Law School.
While earning her Juris Doctor from New York Law, she interned at the American Civil Liberties Union for advocacy and policy. She then went onto serve as a Graduate Fellow at the New York Civil Liberties Union. For six years, Staesha focused her practice on Mass Torts specifically Pharmaceutical and Medical Device liability cases. Then in 2019, she moved to Sweden and worked with a United Nations partner advocating for political prisoners in the Arab Gulf before moving back to the States and settling in Virginia. She joined the Pendleton Law Team to focus her attention once again on Mass Tort cases the Pendleton Law Team takes on including but not limited to Boy Scouts of America, Talcum Powder, Zantac, and RoundUp.
Attorney Staesha Rath comes to us with many accolades as she earned the New York Law School of the National Association of Women Lawyers Outstanding Student Award in 2011 and earned the Super Lawyers® Rising Star Award in 2018.
"What I love most about mass torts cases is it allows you to be a David in a Goliath situation so your voice isn't lost to a multi-million dollar or multi-billion dollar company or organization."
Staesha is an experienced attorney with a passion for social justice and human rights. But when she isn’t working on changing the world, she enjoys hiking with her husband on the many beautiful trails Virginia has to offer, and she is also an amateur photographer.
