Born and raised in New York, Michael has spent his career fighting for the rights of others. Before law school, Michael worked for Congress, where he fought for quality-of-life improvements for our city’s veteran community and those struggling with housing issues and food insecurity. After graduating from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in Lower Manhattan, Michael went to work at The Legal Aid Society, defending the most vulnerable community members from the devastating impacts of the criminal justice system.
After seven years of defending those in need, Michael decided it was time to go on the offensive. At EEP, he brings his extensive courtroom experience and unrelenting advocacy to the firm’s fight for justice and compensation for injured individuals.
During law school, Michael was a Legal Writing Teaching Assistant, Moot Court Honor Society competitor and coach, student practitioner in multiple legal clinics, and recipient of numerous fellowships and honors for his devotion to public service.
His passion for fighting for those in need has made Michael right at home at EEP.
