Whether that is a wife and mother that has lost a spouse due to negligence of others, a female employee subjected to sexual harassment, a female nurse that is subjected to a workplace environment that causes serious injuries, or a Fortune 500 fraud, Ms. Vercoski is a tireless advocate that has gotten justice and great results for her clients.

Ms. Vercoski has successfully argued before the 9th Circuit on an arbitration issue in a worker’s contract. Michele joined the small group of elite attorneys when she argued the arbitration issue on writ of certiorari before the United States Supreme Court on October 29, 2018. The Chief Justice authored the 5-4 split decision.
