Because Tradition Matters

The late Melvin M. Belli is credited with pioneering the foundations of modern consumer rights law.

He was known as the “King of Torts” and won over $600 million in judgments during his distinguished career.

Melvin M. Belli filed and won the first class action lawsuit to be tried in this country for alleged human rights violations in a foreign country. In the punitive damages portion of the trial, Melvin C. Belli persuaded a Honolulu jury to award $1.2 billion in punitive damages against the estate of former Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos for the mass torture of over 10,000 victims.

Passing The Torch: A Legacy Renewed

He continues to carry on the traditions of his late father by being an aggressive legal advocate for injured victims and their families. From auto accidents to employment discrimination, attorney Melvin C. Belli has procured millions for his clients.

Each year, Mr. Belli brings in the top lawyers and experts in the country to discuss cutting-edge legal strategies and tactics. These assemblies help plaintiffs attorneys better represent their clients against those who negligently injure them.
