Case Highlights

When Michael Pezzulli represented six victims in a sexual abuse lawsuit against a religious institution, the settlements he won were exponentially higher than the settlements awarded to the plaintiffs in a similar class action case.

Pezzulli famously fought for, and won, Marina Oswald’s right to exhume Lee Harvey Oswald’s body to conclusively prove his identity, disproving years of conspiracy theories.

And the Dallas Morning News reported that the stunning 40 million dollar jury verdict Pezzulli obtained in 2016 for Maria Escamilla, the Dallas victim of a brutal assault by a former boyfriend, was the highest jury award for a domestic violence case in the United States that year, and the 44th highest jury verdict in the United States for 2016. Although the defendant may never receive monetary compensation, the landmark victory was a highly publicized line in the sand for violent offenders. She courageously chose to reveal her identity and forgo her right to privacy, and has become a passionate advocate for victims of domestic violence.

Some of Dallas trial lawyer Michael Pezzulli’s significant cases include:

  • Obtained the largest jury verdict in U.S. history in a Daycare Child-on-Child Sexual Abuse case; Dallas, Texas.

What Our Clients are Saying
"My case was complicated. My opponents were very high profile individuals with the ability to hire the best attorneys to defend their egregious actions. Michael Pezzulli did not back down, and my verdict was very favorable. He is a strategist with amazing skills. Most of the time he had them beaten before they ever entered the courtroom!" J. Williamson
"Michael Pezzulli is as good as it gets. You'll be hard pressed to find a litigator with not just the know-how but the experience in the courtroom to back it up. Ethically, you can be assured he is one who upholds the Texas Lawyer's Creed. And as a mediator who has mediated for Mr. Pezzulli, I know that he comes prepared, prepares the mediator, and most importantly, prepares his client." Barry Wernick
"My husband and I have known Michael Pezzulli for over 40 years. When representing us we have found him to be very thorough, decisive and, to our benefit, quite intimidating to the opposing attorney when necessary. He has an uncanny way of communicating to members of the jury and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal representation." Jan Richey
