Michael Pitt is a founding member of Pitt, McGehee, Palmer, Rivers and Golden. He has handled complex employment litigation including nationwide class actions, group actions and multiple party cases on behalf of employees from the lowest to highest levels of many of the largest companies in the United States.  Michael received his bachelors from Michigan State University in 1971 and his juris doctor from Wayne State Law School in 1974. Since 1980, he has specialized in employment law and civil rights litigation on behalf of employees.  He also serves as a court appointed mediator of employment disputes and has been frequently selected as an arbitrator.

Michael's recent work on the Neal Case as part of a team of civil rights lawyers has garnered him wide acclaim and recognition.  In this case eighteen women prisoners were raped and sexually assaulted by prison guards in Michigan's prisons, and through Michael's hard work, a damage verdict was won in favor of the women prisoners.  As a result of this case, Michael and the team received recognition from the Trial Lawyers for the Public as the 2008 Trial Lawyer of the Year, recognition from the National Lawyers Guild as the 2008 People's Lawyer of the Year, and in February 2009, the team also received the Wade McCree Award from the Federal Bar Association for the Eastern District of Michigan.

In 2004 and 2005, Michael was elected President of the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association.  In 2003, he was inducted as a Fellow into the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.  He has presented more than 80 papers at seminars across the country sponsored by ATLA, NELA, MTLA, ICLE of Michigan and other organizations.

In March 2009, Michael spoke at the NELA Seminar in Denver, Colorado on the use of depositions in employment, and in April 2009, he spoke at the ICLE Annual Labor and Employment Law Seminar on selecting retaliation cases.  Since 1989, Michael has been listed as one of the Best Lawyers in America.

Michael and his wife, Peggy Goldberg Pitt, are avid bicycle riders and travelers. They are most proud of their son Jared, a law student, and their daughter Meagan, who is an attorney in Colorado.  They recently welcomed their first granddaughter Jorah into the family.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Garnishments Are Intrusive
Garnishments are Intrusive... It's 6:30 in the A.M. and there is a loud knock at your door. Naturally you are alarmed so you proceed to answer the knock with caution. You see from your window, a uniformed sheriff with papers in his or her hands. You have no idea what the visit is all about...but you maintain composure and open the door. "You have been served"... is all you hear. The sheriff walks off and you're left alone to read the disturbing news that you are being sued. I can't tell you how many weekly calls we receive from consumers who phone to say they are being or about to be garnished. They are in panic mode because they understand the ramifications of having less money in your paycheck.
