Michael is Of Counsel to the firm and focuses his practice on Estate Planning and Elder Law matters. Known as an attorney with an astute, compassionate, and patient approach, Michael treats all clients and their wishes with uncompromising respect. Michael has nearly a decade of experience in Estate Planning and Elder Law matters and has worked at some of New York City's most prestigious law firms.

Michael entered Estate Planning and Elder Law after his father was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.  He has first-hand experience with many of the issues his clients face each day and is known as being incredibly patient with elderly or nervous clients.  

Estate Planning and Elder Law is rarely a straightforward process for those with assets to protect and legacies to pass on; the challenges may at first seem unusual and problematic.  Michael encounters these cases often and successfully guides individuals and families through the planning process.

As Michael’s practice has evolved, he spends more time handling the more complex aspects of estate planning, such as business succession, sophisticated trust instruments, generation-skipping transfer tax planning, and fiduciary services. 

Michael is admitted to practice law in Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Michael has been named a Rising Star in Estate Planning and Probate in the Metro Edition of the New York Super Lawyers each year since 2017.
