When it comes to high-stakes litigation, preeminent trial lawyer Benedict Morelli is in rare company. With a continuous stream of precedent-setting, multimillion- dollar verdicts – across a wide array of practice areas – Morelli continues to assert himself as a power litigator in cases ranging from workplace sexual harassment to catastrophic personal injury to defective drugs and medical devices. He has represented numerous high- profile clients including Tracy Morgan, tennis star Eugenie Bouchard, and Andrea Mackris, a former Fox producer who sued Bill O’Reilly for sexual harassment.
“The diversity in our practice is unique for a firm of our size,” Morelli says. “We’re not a run-of-the-mill firm where we do the same medical malpractice cases and the same personal injury cases—many of the matters that come to us are high-value, prominent cases, and that’s because we offer the expertise and experience of a larger law firm in a smaller environment where each case receives our full attention.”
Among his most high-profile results, Morelli achieved a landmark, confidential settlement with Wal-Mart on behalf of Tracy Morgan and five other plaintiffs in the Benedict Morelli accident that was secured in just 10 months, with Wal-Mart taking full responsibility for its truck hitting Morgan’s limousine.
