(December 12, 2018 — Sarasota, FL) Mctlaw is pleased to announce the addition of attorney Michael J. Cowgill to its complex litigation practice, including the firm’s national metal-on-metal hip litigation team.
Mr. Cowgill comes to the mctlaw Sarasota office from Portland, Oregon, where he co-founded his own firm, Meadowlark Immigration PC. Cowgill represented clients before the Executive Office of Immigration Review and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in asylum and deportation proceedings. Cowgill also worked as a law clerk on contract law and environmental law issues with in-house counsel at Iberdrola Renewables (now Avangrid), an international utility corporation.
Before attending law school, Cowgill was a legal researcher at mctlaw. Now, years later, he’s returned to the Firm’s Sarasota office as an accomplished attorney focusing on high-profile metal-on-metal hip replacement litigation.
“No one should ever feel like the odds are against them when the law is on their side,” says Mr. Cowgill. “I’ve always represented people who need someone to speak up for them against huge government institutions and profit-driven corporations.”
Mr. Cowgill graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, OR where he was also a legal writing teaching fellow. He earned his bachelor’s degree from New College of Florida, the state’s highly competitive honors college. Michael was born and raised in Miami, FL, and is a native Spanish speaker.
Mctlaw is a national complex litigation firm with 18 attorneys and offices located in Sarasota, FL, Washington, D.C., and Seattle, WA. The firm’s practice areas include vaccine injury compensation, defective metal on metal hip replacement litigation, construction and commercial law, qui tam, and federal takings.
