Lyons & Simmons co-founder Michael Lyons is featured in the latest issue of Best Lawyers magazine, distributed as a special supplement to the Wall Street Journal, in the article “A Warrior for Clients.”
“Injustice keeps me up at night. My clients’ problems are my problems. I knew we needed to right a terrible wrong,” he says about the trial of Christopher Duntsch, which became the subject of the popular Dr. Death podcast. However, he could have been speaking about his entire career, which has focused on representing people who have the deck stacked against them.
He speaks extensively about his relationship to his clients, his role as an attorney, and his approach to his work. He says, “Your economic status or what ill-fated misfortune you’re faced with should not determine your chance to win in the civil justice system. That’s un-American.”
Over the past 20 years he’s represented publicly traded companies in complex business disputes as well as individuals facing life-altering personal injuries in the fight of their lives. The article goes on to highlight several cases of Mr. Lyons’ most notable cases from recent years, including his representation of the family of a worker who was killed in an Oklahoma gas well blowout, a young girl hit by a delivery truck driven by a drunk, distracted man and an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s who was sexually assaulted in her home by a cable technician.
