Fazio | Micheletti LLP specializes in complex civil litigation involving a wide array of substantive issues -- ranging from cases involving individual breaches of contract and fiduciary duty to massive class actions involving fraudulent concealment of product defects affecting tens of millions of injured consumers.
The firm's principals, Jeffrey Fazio and Dina Micheletti, began the practice of law representing corporate defendants in cases involving claims of product liability, mass torts, discrimination and civil rights violations, and breaches of state and federal securities laws. For the past 20 years, however, we have represented individuals, public-interest groups, and businesses that have been harmed as a result of fraud, breaches of contract, and unfair business practices -- at the trial and on appeal in both state and federal courts. More often than not, those cases involve high stakes and frequently make news locally, nationally, and sometimes globally.
In many of the cases, the firm has prosecuted claims on behalf of thousands -- and sometimes millions -- of individuals affected by the same unlawful conduct, such as false advertising, the sale of a defective product, or breaches of warranty. Such conduct not only harms the individuals who were the primary targets, it also affects other businesses by enabling law-breakers to gain an advantage by taking shortcuts that legitimate businesses simply refuse to take.
The firm's experience extends well beyond the courtroom, having participated in proceedings before state and federal regulatory agencies; provided testimony and other assistance with hearings before the California Senate and the United States Senate; and assisted with investigations by federal Inspectors General.
In short, we have extensive experience with complex civil litigation in a broad array of commercial litigation contexts. The results the firm has achieved speak for themselves.
