About me

Michael received his B.A. from Dickinson College in Carlisle,
Pennsylvania in 2004, where he majored in Political Science, and his law
degree from the Duquesne University School of Law in 2007.

While at Dickinson College, Michael interned for the Pennsylvania
Supreme Court, served as a three year member of the Student Senate, was a
three-time letterman on the Varsity Soccer Team, and studied Italian in
Bologna, Italy.

During his time at Duquesne Law School, Michael was a three-year
member of the Student Bar Association and served as the President of the
Student Bar during his third year. His duties as President included
serving as the sole Duquesne representative to the board of directors
for the Young Lawyers Division of Allegheny County Bar Association. He
returned once again to Italy after his first year of law school, this
time to study Canon and Roman Law in Rome. Additionally, Michael
authored the section on "Bail" in the forthcoming update to Professor
Bruce Antkowiak's criminal law manual, "Pennsylvania Criminal Procedure:
Elements, Analysis, Application", was appointed by the President of
Duquesne University to serve on the "University Advisory Committee",
served on the Law School's academic disciplinary board, and earned three
C.A.L.I. Awards in the subjects of Appellate Practice and Procedure,
Tax Exempt Organizations and Trial Advocacy.

Michael is a member of the Westmoreland County, Allegheny County,
Pennsylvania, and American Bar Associations. He is admitted to practice
before the courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United
States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

Michael and his wife, Megan, both grew up in Unity Township and
currently live in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Michael is a
member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Pittsburgh Urban Magnet
Project (P.U.M.P.), and the Duquesne Law School Alumni Association. When
he is not practicing law, he enjoys skiing, boating, golf, politics and
watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins.
