Since joining the firm in 2002, he has argued cases in both federal and state courts in Georgia. As a strong litigator and skilled negotiator, Mike enjoys taking on cases originally denied by insurance companies or rejected by other law firms and turning them into successful verdicts and settlements for clients.
Mike became inspired to fight for injured clients after he watched, in horror, as his sister was mistreated by an insurance company after she was victimized by an inattentive driver in a violent car accident. He immediately dedicated his career to fighting for justice for people injured and suffering due to someone else’s negligence. Clients value Mike for his understanding, honesty and straight talk when discussing the details of their case and his guidance through the legal process.
A native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, Mike graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and earned his Juris Doctor from New York Law School. While in law school Mike was employed by New York City’s Corporation Counsel where he worked on the defense of the City, against negligence actions. That experience allowed Mike a valuable window into the defense world before even graduating law school.
Mike, his wife Kim, and their boys Mychal and Quinn make their home in Atlanta. Mike volunteers as a youth coach for his sons’ baseball and basketball teams. He also enjoys giving back to the community and has volunteered at firm-sponsored driver safety events, including the Safe Teen Driver Academy. When Mike is not coaching his kids or at their games he can often be found enjoying walks with his wife and their three dogs.
