High-Profile Attorney Joseph Cavallo Represents Abused Women and Bullied Children

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - Defense attorney Joseph Cavallo is frequently mentioned among such high-profile defenders as Johnnie Cochrane, Alan Dershowitz, and F. Lee Bailey. Cavallo is best known for his role in a number of controversial cases, including his defense of Greg Haidl, the son of former Orange County Assistant Sheriff Don Haidl, Orange County Assistant Sheriff George Jaramillo, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. While media chooses to focus on Cavallo's aggressive and relentless defense strategies, they often fail to mention his social engagement and the many years he has been providing pro bono work to advocate for abused women and bullied children in and out of courtroom.

According to Joseph Cavallo, his commitment is motivated by the increasing prevalence of abuse against women and children in the United States. "There is mental and physical abuse, everybody knows about that," he explains. "But there's also financial abuse. The abuser holds the money over their heads: 'You leave me, fine. You'll be on the street. You will have nothing. You won't be able to afford a lawyer.'"

By offering his own legal services to help abused women and children, Cavallo personally handles the cases with the hope that other lawyers will notice and contribute to this important cause. "I hope that those affected by violence and abuse will look at my track record as a defense attorney and recognize that I will fight relentlessly on their behalf," Cavallo said. "I can't negate the violence done to them, but I hope that I can help set them on the path towards healing. I want the victims of violence and bullying to know that there is someone out there willing to fight for them."

Specializing in criminal defense, Cavallo has also defended hundreds as a personal injury lawyer, winning more than $20 million in damages for his civil dispute clients. He maintains an extensive network of accident investigators, engineers, safety and medical experts who help present supporting evidence in seeking justice for his clients. Cavallo has been featured in a range of national media, including newspapers, radio, and television outlets like CNN, MSNBC, "Good Morning America," CBS' "48 hours" and FOX's "O'Reilly Factor."

Outside of the courtroom, Cavallo channels his determined personality into numerous projects aimed towards helping others. When Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. in 2005, Cavallo left his law office in California behind to head down to Mississippi and Louisiana to provide hands-on help. On his way to assist with the city's cleanup at New Orleans, Cavallo volunteered at a Salvation Army refugee center in Biloxi, Mississippi. Born and raised in New Jersey, Joseph Cavallo attended St. Peter's College in Jersey City. He went on to study law at the prestigious Western State University in Fullerton, California and established his own law firm in the city of Irvine. Cavallo continues with his efforts for pro bono work and for "Adopt the Elderly", a local volunteer organization he founded to create a friendship network for senior citizens.
