Benedict Morelli is a considered among many as a “lawyer’s lawyer”. For a man who started out his career as a law clerk in 1973, he has since carved a considerable name for himself in the field of law. Morelli Law Firm is a practice that is recommended to clients from both law firms and judges. Many of the cases that the firm handles are actually for other law firms or lawyers who have seen first-hand the success that Morelli had with his past cases, and who know that they will certainly get the greatest representation from him.
Morelli started out with a degree from City College, New York and first studied the practice of law at New York Law School. He is admitted to the United States Supreme Court as well as the United States District Courts. He is well known for fighting against large companies and corporations that many other law firms would not be able to handle. The drug companies DES, Ortho-Evra, and Avandia are among the companies he has gone up against and won. Not only does he take them on, Morelli wins verdicts in the amount of millions of dollars. For example, his $40 million dollar verdict in 1995 was a part of the National Law Journal as one of the “Top Ten Verdicts”.
Morelli is considered one of New York’s “Superstars” according to the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and has also been listed in Best Lawyers in America on a continuous basis from 1997 to the present. Morelli has also appeared as a guest on many different television shows, including “Anderson Cooper 360”, “Dateline NBC”, “Aaron Brown”, “The Today Show”, and “Good Morning America.”
