Attorney Profile

Jeffrey L. Fazio has been a partner at Fazio | Micheletti LLP since founding the firm in 2003. Focusing his practice on complex litigation, he represents plaintiffs in class actions, shareholder-derivative suits, and individual actions involving false advertising, product defects, fraud, unfair business practices, and breaches of contract and fiduciary duties.

Mr. Fazio draws upon the experience that he obtained early in his career as an associate at two large law firms that represented corporate and government entities as defendants in securities fraud, product liability, employment, antitrust, and intellectual property litigation. Bringing that experience with complex litigation to bear on cases he has prosecuted on behalf of plaintiffs, Mr. Fazio has obtained significant victories on behalf of his clients, including a settlement valued in excess of $200 million in a class action against Volvo Cars of North America, LLC, and the first (and only) court-ordered motor-vehicle recall in U.S. history in a case that ultimately resulted in a settlement valued at over $2.7 billion.

Mr. Fazio attended Antioch University as an undergraduate, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1985. He enrolled at New York University School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor degree in 1989, after spending his third year of law school as a visiting student at U.C. Berkeley School of Law. While at NYU, Mr. Fazio was a member of the editorial staff of the New York University Annual Survey of American Law and served as an extern for United States District Judge Miriam Cedarbaum in the Southern District of New York. While at Berkeley Law, he clerked for United States District Judge Eugene F. Lynch in the Northern District of California.

Licensed to practice in California, Mr. Fazio has represented clients in state and federal litigation throughout the State, as well as in many other parts of the country. He is a contributing author of a treatise on automobile design liability.
