About Me

Mike Bruno was born in a U.S. Army Hospital in Stuttgart, Germany.
Following his father’s discharge from the Army, he and his parents
returned to their hometown of Toledo. Mike graduated from Sylvania High
School in 1975 and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications
from Ohio University in 1979. Mike worked his way through law school as
a bailiff for Lucas County Common Pleas Judge George M. Glasser.

After
graduation from The University of Toledo Law School in 1983, Mike
became employed as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the adult felony
division of the Lucas County Prosecutor’s office. From 1983 to 1989
Mike prosecuted hundreds of cases including two death penalty murder
trials. Since 1989, Mike has almost exclusively handled personal injury
and insurance matters. All told, he has tried more than 100 jury trials
throughout northwest Ohio, the most recent a recovery of $1.25 million
against a trucking company for a client seriously injured at a truck
stop. 

Mike is a member of the Toledo Bar Association and the
Ohio Association for Justice. He has attained Board Certification as a
Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He has
an AV rating through Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest possible
peer-review rating.

Mike and his wife live in Sylvania, Ohio,
and have three sons. Mike also serves as president of the Italian
American Sports Club. He enjoys reading, racquet sports, playing guitar,
and is a lifelong fan of the Detroit Tigers.
