About me

I earned my law degree with honors from the American University Washington College of Law where I served as an Articles Editor on the Editorial Board of the Articles THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY LAW REVIEW.  I was a Dean’s Fellow for Associate Dean and Professor Jamin Raskin, a Judicial Intern for the Honorable Charles R. Richey, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and a Legal Intern, United States Attorney’s Office of the District of Columbia as well as a Legal Intern for the District of Columbia Office of Corporation Counsel.  I earned my LL.M. in Securities and Financial Regulation from the Georgetown University Law Center.  After law school I clerked for Judge John H. Bayly at D.C. Superior Court.  Judge Bayly was hearing criminal and family matters at the time.

  • Sheraz Barkat

    I first worked with Michael Troy as opposing counsel on a divorce and child custody matter, and was impressed with his diligence and skillful advocacy. He is an experienced litigator that can be trusted to maneuver clients through the many landmines that can appear in family law cases. I frequently recommend clients to Mr. Troy and will continue to do so in the future.
