Michael Cash is, first and foremost, a trial lawyer. Sought after and respected nationally for over 30 years, he helps primarily large corporate clients in high-stakes litigation. He has tried cases to juries for more than thirty years. Those cases include, but are not limited to:
- Land Contamination Cases
- Environmental Matters
- Commercial Disputes
- Toxic Torts
- Catastrophic Injuries
- Employment Matters
Michael has tried just about every kind of case that goes to a jury. He has also represented governmental agencies and officials, and has argued before numerous appellate courts throughout the U.S., including the Texas and Louisiana Supreme Courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
"I guess if I had to describe what I do best, I would say that it is being able to tell compelling stories to 12 people at a time," Mike notes. “Sometimes my job is to take a complicated legal and factual scenario and boil it down to one or two sentences that will catch the jury’s attention. For example, don’t try breach of contract cases – try broken promise cases. That’s because not everyone on my jury will have dealt with the breach of a contract, but every one of them will have experienced a broken promise. My job is to make my client’s position relatable to 12 strangers."
Relationships with bench and bar are crucial to Michael. As he describes it, "I believe that it is important to earn and to keep the respect of the plaintiffs’ bar and the judiciary. I work hard to do that. In order to gain that respect you have to be professional, honest, candid and respectful. I think those qualities are too rare in today’s practice. Practicing with that in mind tends to set you apart.”
Mike is not only respected by his peers, but has been recognized by them for his outstanding trial work, has been quoted in advocacy textbooks and has taught advocacy skills throughout the U.S. and Canada. He is a faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and has been consistently honored in numerous publications.
