Michael A. Mainetti is a partner at the law firm of Mainetti & Mainetti, P.C. Michael is a 2005 graduate of Ithaca College and a 2010 graduate of Albany Law School. Following law school, Michael immediately began practicing personal injury law, and additionally started working for the Ulster County Public Defender's Office, representing people who could not afford private counsel. Although working for the Public Defender's Office was a rewarding way to give back to the community in which he was born and raised, Michael stepped down from the position in 2018 in order to follow his passion for personal injury law and to form the law firm of Mainetti & Mainetti, P.C. with his father Alfred and brother Alex.

Michael's focus is on personal injury law and trial advocacy, and he has taken verdicts in Supreme Court in the counties of Ulster, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Sullivan and Delaware. Michael has also found success arguing in the Appellate Division, 3rd Department. Michael's advocacy has resulted in his clients receiving millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, and he has been ranked as a Top Attorney in Upstate New York and Hudson Valley and as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2015-2018, was nationally ranked in 2018 in the Top 10 under 40 by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys and as one of America's Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys. Michael feels privileged for the opportunity to be working in the area where he was born and raised and is dedicated to helping his community both in and out of the courtroom.

Highly Recommend!
I was recently represented by Mr. Mainetti in a DWI case. He was not only professional, knowledgeable and honest but he was also understanding and supportive. He was able to keep me at ease throughout the entire process while realistically managing my expectations. Although the process was a bit lengthy due to various components of the case, michael made sure to stay in touch and keep me up to date on everything happening. I truly appreciate his time and dedication!

Excellent service from a qualified professional
Last week my company needed legal advice with an issue that could have easily gotten out of hand. I called the office of Mainetti, Mainetti and O'Connor, and was able to speak right away with Michael about my problem. He listened intently to all my concerns and was able to advise me on the best possible way to handle my situation at hand. Although he said he had never dealt with a situation like this before, I was very pleased with the solution he had presented me and I took his advice. Now after a week since the consoltation and doing what Michael had advised me to do, I know I had made the best decision possible for my company. I had been so stressed trying to decide how to handle my issue so my business would not be affected and hadn't know where to turn. I will continue to use Michael for my legal needs as he is extremely professional, receptive and knowledgeable in his field. I do recommend his services for anyone who, like me, needs great advice and support with problems that couldn't be resolved otherwise. Thanks again Michael.

EXTRODINARY lawyer – Michael A. Mainetti
Michael A. Mainetti acted as my public defender in a case where I was charged with not only a misdemeanor but a class B felony with possible jail time. My expectations going into this situation using a public defender were extremely low. When I first met with Michael he had stated to me that most likely I would end up convicted of at least one of the charges. Michael was able to make a plea deal with the district attorney and judge my very first day in court, the misdemeanor would be dropped completely and as long as I completed treatment I was to receive an ACD for the felony. The ACD would seal the felony from my permanent record. This month I received my ACD. From day one, Michael was up front, honest, caring, informative, knowledgeable and understanding. He told me that he would do his absolute best and he surpassed that. Michael is the only reason I was able to keep my most prized possession, my nursing license. I will never be able to repay Michael for what he has done for me! I am extremely grateful for Michael and the hard work he put forth for my case. I highly recommend Mainetti Mainetti & O'Connor, PC especially Michael A. Mainetti. I assure you with great confidence that Mainetti Mainetti & O'Connor, PC will fight for you to receive the very best results/outcome possible just like Michael Mainetti did for me! -Amanda
