Bernard Puglisi joined Fuchs & Roselli as a litigation associate in 2023. His practice involves a wide array of commercial litigation issues, including but not limited to employment disputes, partnership disputes, and condominium association disputes, breaches of contract and fiduciary duty, fraud and consumer fraud, estates and trusts litigation, and commercial evictions.


Prior to joining Fuchs & Roselli, Bernard worked for a firm in Detroit, MI as an appellate litigation attorney working on critical motions, and sophisticated appellate advocacy and analysis.
