A $24 million jury verdict and judgment obtained in a 10-year high-stakes commercial litigation case

In 1998, an asphalt contractor entered into a contract with one of the largest gravel companies in the country to create a combination asphalt plant and supply yard. After investing millions in preparation for the venture, the gravel company broke the contract. As a result, Michael's client lost millions of dollars and was forced to go out of the business. It was an uphill legal fight requiring a jury trial and two trips to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. After a decade-long fight, Mr. Pasternak prevailed, finally securing $24 million for his client.

$2 million jury verdict and judgment after medical negligence and product liability trial

A patient with a benign brain tumor underwent surgery that required replacing a portion of his skull with an artificial substitute.

Near million dollar award to a minor who was sexually harassed at work

A teenage girl was sexually harassed by her adult male manager at work. Because of the sensitive nature of the incident, details about the client, case and terms of the resolution must remain confidential. However, Mr. Pasternak was able to secure just under a million dollars on the day of trial for his client.

Near million dollar award for a child injured in a railroad accident

A railroad company neglected to take adequate safety measures in a neighborhood in the Cleveland area. The railroad's failure resulted in a train accident that caused a little boy to lose the lower part of his left leg. The railroad's initial offer was $50,000. Mr. Pasternak fought back, litigating for years to get this child the compensation he needed to live his life. Because the case involved a minor, details about the client, case and terms of the resolution must remain confidential. However, Mr. Pasternak was able to secure just under a million dollars on the day of trial for his client.

$800,000 settlement after a nursing home patient suffered serious injuries in a fall

Despite clear restrictions in the patient's chart, an aide negligently attempted to assist an elderly woman to the bathroom, resulting in a fall that shattered her leg. Had the aide taken the time to open and read the patient's chart, the injury would have been avoided. Mr. Pasternak fought to compensate this woman for her suffering, obtaining $800,000 on her behalf.

$650,000 for an infant injured due to chemical exposure
