Lawdragon lawyer limelight: Michael D. Hausfeld

Michael Hausfeld has always approached the law as a tool to improve the world. From working with Native Alaskans facing environmental threats after the Exxon Valdez oil spill, to recovering assets for Holocaust victims, to laying groundwork that will affect trillions of trade dollars in the international currency market, Hausfeld is driven by a passion for making the law help communities harmed by powerful government or corporate interests. The firm that bears his name is infused with his approach to seeking social and economic justice in the most prescient matters of today, including cases on climate change, religious freedoms, and international trade laws. A father of three and grandfather of five, Hausfeld graduated from National Law Center George Washington University.
