For the past 8 years, Mr. Flynn has focused his practice almost exclusively on litigating complex class actions on behalf of consumers who were injured by false advertising or other unlawful business practices. The vast majority of these cases have involved food and beverage labels and have alleged violations by defendants ranging from small and mid-size companies to defendants like Kellogg, Post Foods, Mondelez International, and Nestle. He has been appointed Class Counsel by numerous state and federal courts in cases that often resulted in substantial financial compensation to class members and significant changes to how the products at issue are labeled and advertised.

Prior to joining Fitzgerald Joseph LLP, Mr. Flynn was a full time trial lawyer, representing the County of San Diego as a deputy county counsel and as a court-appointed counsel for minors and non-minor dependents in San Diego's dependency court system. For the majority of his time in that practice, he worked with a non-profit 501(c)(3), and was recognized as an attorney of the year for his non-profit work.

Mr. Flynn obtained his undergraduate degree from University of California at San Diego and his law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law.
