Michael Rousseau focuses his practice on representing people harmed by defective medical devices, as well as workers and families impacted by mesothelioma and other asbestos-related lung diseases.

Most recently, Michael has played a key role in assisting thousands of women harmed by defective transvaginal mesh, including working on discovery and settlements. Previously, he spent five years heavily involved in Composix Kugel Mesh litigation, including defendant liability, discovery and trials. He is also a member of the legal team that successfully advocated for an extension of the risk contribution theory of liability in Wisconsin in 2005, enabling lead-poisoned children and families to seek compensation from former manufacturers of lead paint.

As a law student, Michael provided volunteer representation to autistic children to help them obtain special education services and physical therapy pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
