Immediately thereafter, Michael earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law where he was heavily involved in trial advocacy and interned with the Miami-Dade State Attorney.

After leaving the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s office, Michael accepted a job with a boutique litigation firm that served as corporate counsel for hundreds of Florida businesses. He later founded his own criminal law firm in 2006. Since the inception of the firm, Michael has been committed to aggressively defending criminal clients from all walks of life in allegations ranging from Attempted Murder and Narcotics Trafficking, to DUI and Anti-Trust Violations.
In his personal life, Michael enjoys spending time with his family and exercising regularly. He is a member of the Miami Children’s Hospital Young Ambassadors Board and Diamond Society, the Pillar Board for the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, and was elected to the Miami Beach City Commission in 2013.
