I was born and raised in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, New York. I had a fondness for airplanes as a child, and eventually studied aeronautics at Brooklyn Technical High School. I left Brooklyn a few days after I turned 18 to join the Air Force where I learned to repair radar equipment on jets, and then satellite communications equipment. In my twelve plus years with the Air Force I had the pleasure to do some traveling, throughout the United States ,Italy, Germany, Turkey and Greece. I left the military in 1993 and moved to Broward County.
My career path remained in the technical area. Avionics is aircraft electronics, and is what I did for many years. I learned to fly. However in 2000 I decided to study the law. I hung up my shingle in July of 2004 after graduating from Nova Southeastern University in 2003 and have been practicing Family Law since then.
I am proud to say I am a grandfather of six. I have been married to my wife, Nancy, since 1999.
I enjoy going to the movies, the beach, spending time with the family, and believe it or not, working on my wife’s “honey-do” list.

Michael is a very competent and knowledgeable Family Law attorney. He tries to settle cases in order to avoid the financial and emotional costs of a trial, but if trial is inevitable he is a zealous advocate seeking to obtain the best possible result for his clients. Michael is also calm in the midst of chaos and easy to work with. I highly endorse him.
