Since joining the firm in 2017 he has already secured over ten million dollars of compensation for these deserving individuals.

Among Michael’s many notable cases was a $1.3 million settlement he secured for a construction worker that was injured when he fell from a ladder. Both how the accident occurred and the nature and extent of the client’s injuries were vigorously contested by the defense, but Michael turned this case of uncertainty into a million-dollar payday for his client.
