Seattle Attorney Michael T. Pfau is a trial lawyer who has practiced law for more than 20 years. He has tried over 50 cases to juries, the bench and arbitration panels. Michael has obtained multiple verdicts in excess of $1 million and he has recovered tens of millions of dollars in settlements for his clients.

Michael was born in 1964 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and is the son of a trial lawyer. He attended Boston College, graduated magna cum laude, and earned a number of other academic honors. After Boston College, Michael attended the prestigious Michigan law school and graduated in 1991. He has been named a perpetual “Super Lawyer” by Washington Law and Politics, receiving that honorable distinction every year since 2003.

In this endeavor, Michael has been lead counsel for hundreds of victims of sexual abuse victims, and has recovered in nearly $100 million dollars for his clients over the past 10 years in lawsuits against the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, the State of Washington, the Boy Scouts of America, and other institutions responsible for child sex abuse.
