He has experience in both federal and state court, and has represented clients at both the trial and appellate levels.
In addition to his consumer protection practice, Michael is a VA accredited attorney able to assist combat veterans with the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of VA claim notice of disagreements (“NOD”) before Decision Review Officers (“DRO Review”) at local VA offices and substantive appeals before the Board of Veterans Appeals (“BVA”). Michael also has experience with prosecution of claims for violations of the Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act ("SCRA"). Any veterans or active-duty military members with questions regarding VA benefits or potential SCRA claims are always welcome for a free consultation.

Rev. 679.
A graduate of the University of Miami School of Law, Michael holds a Juris Doctor degree with a concentration in business and financial law, as well as Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration earned cum laude from Villanova University School of Business.
