Dina E. Micheletti 

Dina Micheletti is a partner with Fazio | Micheletti LLP, and has served as lead and co-lead counsel in a variety of cases involving unfair competition, consumer fraud, false advertising, breaches of warranty, and business torts, many of which have involved product defects. 

 

Among the cases she has prosecuted are In re Apple iPhone/iPod Warranty Litigation, a breach-of-warranty and fraud class action that was resolved by a settlement that resulted in a $53 million cash for the class; Wilson v. Airborne Health, Inc., a false-advertising case involving a purported “Miracle Cold Buster” that resulted in the creation of a $23.25 million cash settlement fund; Raimondi v. Ford Motor Co., a product liability action that led to one of the largest loss-of-consortium verdicts in California history ($51,750,700); and Howard v. Ford Motor Co., a case that involved the fraudulent concealment of a defective ignition component in millions of vehicles that led to the first (and only) court-ordered motor-vehicle recall in a civil action in U.S. history.
 

Ms. Micheletti also represents consumer groups as amicus curiae in appellate cases of significant legal and societal import, including Graham v. DaimlerChrysler (Cal. Supreme Court), In re Tobacco II Cases (Cal. Supreme Court) and Mazza v. Am. Honda Motor Co. (9th Cir.).

 

For well over a decade, Ms. Micheletti has worked closely with nationally-recognized consumer-rights organizations, as well as consultants and academics who are widely regarded to be at the forefront of their professions.  She is a member of the American Association of Justice, the Public Justice Foundation, and the National Association of Consumer Advocates. She has also served as a speaker at law conferences, such as an American Bar Association presentation pertaining to the impact of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal's decision in Mazza v. American Honda Co., Inc. (in which Fazio | Micheletti LLP represented Public Citizen as amicus curiae).

 

Ms. Micheletti graduated magna cum laude from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1996, where she earned a number of awards for her achievements in academia and advocacy, including the American Jurisprudence Award in a variety of subjects, the 1995 Moot Court Award for best oral argument, and the Dean’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence.
