Mike Woerner works for the public good. A member of Keller Rohrback's nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group since 1985, Mike focuses on class action and mass personal injury cases. He is skilled at focusing the Courts' attention on key issues in litigation and at negotiating favorable settlements to bring relief to people who have experienced physical, emotional, and financial harm from environmental contamination, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, and other negligent acts with far-reaching consequences.

Mike was a member of the litigation team that received the 1995 Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from Trial Lawyers for Public Justice for the In re Exxon Valdez litigation resulting from the devastation of thousands of miles of fishing ground around Prince William Sound, Kodiak Island, Chignik, and Cook Inlet after the infamous oil spill. He has more recently represented hundreds of clients in multiple states at risk of heart-valve damage or primary pulmonary hypertension from fen-phen diet drugs. Mike also has experience litigating and negotiating widespread medical negligence issues and misconduct by fiduciaries charged with investing retirement plan assets. With his focus on impact litigation, Mike strives to achieve full compensation for his clients as well as to compel institutional reform and change the conduct of powerful bad actors to prevent them from causing future harm.

Outside of work, Mike enjoys traveling with his family experiencing new places and cultures, as well as staying closer to home cheering on his kids' basketball and volleyball teams.
