All of these endeavors are in addition to his thriving law practice where he handles litigation in numerous types of  personal injury cases including motor vehicle accidents, premises liability accidents, construction accidents, and railroad and subway accidents, among others.

Michael has been practicing law for over 3 decades, following his 1985 admission to a number of state and federal bars, including the bars of New York and New Jersey; the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey; and the U.S. District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
