“The thing I do best is tell compelling stories to 12 people at a time. 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, “breach of contract” cases are presented as “broken promise” cases because everyone on my jury will have experienced a broken promise. My job is to make my client’s position relatable to 12 strangers.”
Michael Cash is, first and foremost, a trial lawyer. Sought after and respected nationally for nearly 40 years, he helps primarily large corporate clients in high-stakes litigation. Those cases include, but are not limited to:
- Bet-the-Company Litigation
- Complex Commercial Litigation
- Mass Torts and Class Actions
- 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.
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. In recognition of his outstanding achievements in the courtroom, Mike has been inducted as a Fellow into the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers. He is a faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and has been consistently honored in numerous publications.
