Michael Pullano joined Cogan & Power in the summer of 2016. Since then, Michael has concentrated his practice in many areas of tort and personal injury including trucking accidents, medical malpractice actions, FELA litigation, wrongful death, and defamation.
Michael’s advocacy is fueled by his empathy and compassion for his clients. He believes in the dignity of every person and the right to a level playing field regardless of race, class or education. Michael developed his passion for justice at an early age, growing up with a father who is also a trial attorney, and who instilled those beliefs in Michael during his childhood. He also witnessed first-hand that for those who are injured, a skilled lawyer is often the critical difference in ensuring full recovery.
Michael’s compassion for equal opportunities for all extends beyond the courtroom and into the field of education. Through a competitive selection process, Michael was selected as a mentor to the America Needs You Fellows Program, which is an intensive two-year program for high-achieving, low-income students. He volunteered for two years after graduating from law school, mentoring in the Chicago-based arm of the program devoted to college completion, career exploration and professional skills development for some of the city’s first-generation college students.
Prior to joining Cogan & Power, Michael graduated cum laude from DePaul University College of Law. During his time in law school, Michael was named to the Dean’s List each year and received the CALI Award for the top grade in his class in Trial Advocacy. After his first year of law school, Michael worked as a law clerk for a prominent plaintiff’s personal injury firm where he worked with many clients who suffered from catastrophic injuries. Thereafter, he took a position with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office as a law clerk in the Felony Trial Division. There, he gained valuable courtroom experience prosecuting several cases to verdict and arguing contested pretrial motions.
Since graduating law school, Michael has been honing his litigation skills at Cogan & Power. Michael feels fortunate to come to work every day among excellent attorneys fighting for their clients.
Michael attended undergrad at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating with a B.A. in Political Science. He belongs to several state legal associations, including the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, and Chicago Bar Association.
