Review Michael Behm

About Me

 


Michael J. Behm is an attorney in his 20th year of practicing law. Mike’s law practice focuses exclusively on the representation of people who have been seriously injured due to negligence.  He is an AV rated attorney by Martindale Hubbell and was one of the youngest qualifying attorneys in Michigan when he received this honor.  Mike has also been listed as a Michigan Super Lawyer the last five years and is recognized by the American Trial Lawyers Association as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in Michigan. 


 


In the Summer of 2011, Mike became only the thirteenth attorney from Michigan to become a Fellow in the Melvin M. Belli Society. Mike regularly lectures in Michigan and throughout the country on issues of tort liability, including specific topical issues such as recent speeches involving medical malpractice litigation under the Federal Tort Claims Act, and broader topics, such as jury selection and maximizing elements of damages.
