Throughout her career, Melinda (“Mindy”) Morales has represented clients across a broad range of complex litigation on both sides of the courtroom. Mindy has over twenty years of experience in state and federal court advocating for both plaintiffs and defendants at the trial and appellate levels. This gives Mindy a unique perspective that allows her to anticipate her opposing counsel’s methods and provides insight into their approach.
Mindy’s early career was devoted to working exclusively on class action litigation in the areas of consumer fraud, antitrust, and securities. Over the years she has gained extensive experience handling disputes involving consumer protection laws, employment laws, insurance coverage issues, and commercial contract and partnership issues. In the class action arena, her accomplishments include acting as a core member of the trial and appellate team that obtained a $1 billion verdict on behalf of plaintiffs in a landmark consumer fraud case, co-authoring multiple winning appellate briefs, and arguing on behalf of plaintiffs to address the extraterritorial reach of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act.
Mindy’s desire to get back to helping regular people and businesses whose rights have been trampled, led her to Wexler Wallace, where she serves as Of Counsel for the firm. When she’s not advocating for her clients, Mindy enjoys spending time with her family, skiing, hiking, travelling, and volunteering at local charities.
