Steve Berman has dedicated this career as a class-action plaintiffs’ lawyer to improving the lives of those most in need. He represents large classes of consumers, investors and employees in large-scale, complex litigation held in state and federal courts. Steve's trial experience has earned him significant recognition and led The National Law Journal to name him one of the 100 most powerful lawyers in the nation, and to repeatedly name Hagens Berman one of the top 10 plaintiffs’ firms in the country. Steve’s class-action lawsuits have led to record-breaking settlements, historic changes to industries and made real change possible for millions of individuals.

Steve co-founded Hagens Berman in 1993 after his prior firm refused to represent several young children who consumed fast food contaminated with E. coli—Steve knew he had to help. In that case, Steve alleged that the poisoning was the result of Jack in the Box’s cost cutting measures and negligence. He was further inspired to build a firm that vociferously fought for the rights of those most in need. Berman’s innovative approach, tenacious conviction and impeccable track record have earned him an excellent reputation and numerous historic legal victories. He is considered one of the nation’s most successful class-action attorneys and has been praised for securing tangible benefits for class members, as well as outstanding monetary relief. Steve is particularly known for his tenacity in forging settlements that return a high percentage of recovery or meaningful industry change to class members.

Personal Insight

Steve was a high school and college soccer player and coach. Now that his daughter’s soccer skills exceed his, he is relegated to being a certified soccer referee and spends weekends being yelled at by parents, players and coaches (as opposed to being yelled at by judges during the week). Steve is also an avid cyclist and is heavily involved in working with young riders on the international Hagens Berman Axeon cycling team.
