About me

Michael concentrates his practice in the areas of real estate, land use/permitting, litigation, affordable housing, corporate/business, and estate planning. Michael represents his clients before municipal and state regulatory and administrative agencies, as well as all courts in the Commonwealth.


In the area of real estate, Michael represents institutional lenders, municipal entities, buyers and sellers in residential, affordable housing and commercial real estate transactions. Additionally, Michael has an in-depth knowledge of the myriad of land use regulations and routinely represents clients before various municipal and state permitting agencies which include, but are not limited to, zoning board of appeals, conservation commissions, historical commissions, and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).


Michael works with businesses who are looking for the broad expertise that can be found in a general counsel, without the overhead of a full time general counsel. In addition to contract drafting and advising in issues of corporate compliance, Michael helps his clients with the types of problems businesses face every day and either provides or finds the expertise necessary to solve those problems.


On the litigation side of his practice, Michael’s broad litigation practice includes representation of clients in a variety of matters such as the prosecution and defense of breach of contract matters, business disputes, construction, municipal, and trust/estate matters.


Michael received his B.S. (Biology) from Trinity College (CT) in 1998, and his J.D. from New England School of Law in 2004. During his time in law school, Michael served as an editor of the New England Law Review, and authored the note article Questions Blowing in the Wind: The Development of Offshore Wind as a Renewable Source of Energy in the United States, 38 NEW ENGLAND LAW REVIEW 415 (2004). In addition, during his 2nd and 3rd years of law school, Michael was a legal research and writing advisor to first-year law students. He is admitted to practice in Massachusetts and before the United States District Court, District of Massachusetts.
