About me

My law firm focuses on handling less cases at a higher level.  We have 4 lawyers working on approximately 20 cases.  We represent people whose lives have been affected as the result of negligent conduct. 


We are committed to taking cases to trial when necessary.  We are so proud that one client was recently awarded the Nestlehutt Award for the Courageous Pursuit of Justice by the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association stemming from her willingness to take her case against Monitronics International to trial.  Last year, a Dekalb County jury returned a verdict in her favor in the amount of $9,000,000 as the result of Monitronics International's negligent conduct.

  • Todd Robert Henningsen

    Anyone "in the know" about personal injury law in Georgia is aware that Michael is a preeminent trial attorney. He most recently obtained a verdict of $9,000,000.00 in a hard fought, difficult case. I believe most attorneys would have shied away from such a battle, but Michael was true to his reputation and zealously represented his deserving client. I was fortunate to meet Michael a few years ago and was immediately impressed with his legal ability. As a fellow trial attorney who has worked with Michael, I know first hand that he is an aggressive advocate for his clients and works tirelessly to ensure that they receive the best representation. Hands down, Michael is the best of the best!!!
