As Principal and Founder of Troncellito Law, much of my professional attention is devoted to civil matters, including contract drafting and negotiation, civil litigation, entrepreneurial law, mediation, and "fixing people's messes".


I provide legal representation and serve as outside general counsel to firms and companies of all types and sizes – from “mom and pop shops” to companies with $20 million in annual revenues. In this role, I draft and negotiate contracts, handle commercial litigation matters, and perform other legal and consulting services.


I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Rutgers University School of Law in Newark, New Jersey. I also hold a Bachelor of Science with a dual major from the University of Scranton.


I am admitted to practice in all State and County courts within the State of Arizona and within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I am also admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Arizona and the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.


Prior to founding Troncellito Law, I was a partner in the firm of Troncellito Van Perusem (previously known as Troncellito & Associates) where my practice involved personal injury matters and commercial document drafting and business litigation.  Prior to that, I was a partner in the law firm of Barton & Troncellito for five years.



I also spent nearly five years working for various insurance companies and insurance defense law firms. My training and experience inside the insurance industry, along with my familiarity with industry operations and procedures, serve as a tremendous benefit for my litigation and corporate clients.


Over the years, having been exposed to so many different situations involving business and individual clients, I developed practices and procedures that allow me to offer great legal services at reasonable and affordable rates. 


I donate substantial time to community activities. I volunteer with various civic, community, and charitable organizations throughout the greater Phoenix area.


I love to spend time with my wife and two sons, to travel, and to play golf.

Excellent Attorney !
I was referred to Mike concerning an auto accident I had. I was very pleased with how seamless and smooth my case went. Mike took all my information, gave me clear instructions about what else he needed from me and how the process works. He kept in constant contact with me about updates of my case and settled the case quickly. He even negotiated with my physicians and paid their respective bills. I highly recommend him and will certainly use him for any other legal needs I may have in the future!

Satisfied, Greatful and Pleased
We were in desperate need of an attorney in our civil case against an unscrupulous borrower who was doing everything he could to make our lives difficult legally. Our resources are somewhat limited so we were going pro se as best we could. However we knew we needed representation at our emergency TRO hearing. With little notice, Mr. Troncellito appeared on our behalf and we could not have hoped for better. He had a complete command of the facts and showed the defendant to be the scammer he is. The hearing was a resounding success for us.

Worth every penny!
When you need something resolved ASAP, Mike is the man. I was able to close on the sale of my home with his help on a hang up dealing with the court and credit system. I will absolutely use him again if there is ever a need and I will definitely refer him to everyone I know!

I left an after-hours message for Mike Troncellito and he returned my call within 30 minutes - incredible! He reviewed a contract matter for me and provided a clear and concise summation of the situation as well as my options for resolution. Mike has a spectacular sense of humor, an endearing personality, and a depth of kindness that is a rare gift. I appreciated Mike's honesty and candor and would recommend him without reservation. Thank you, Mike!!

Interested in my concerns, and excellent detail on other considerations!
Took the time to address all of my initial questions and then spent some additional time ensuring I had started to think around other peripheral aspects of by business-related concern. Very helpful, would seek Michael's counsel in PHX market outside of Avvo as well.

Real Estate LLC Operation Agreement Formation, Property Holding LLC Formation
Mike created for me a usable LLC structure from the pieces of several LLC seminars I had been to, but made it usable with my business partner, as well as pointed out several key components I was missing that were not mentioned before. He is proactive with his pricing vs workload, and encourages clients to effectively manage their legal questions to maximize their time spent using his services.

Gets the job done
I hired Mike to write a couple letters on my behalf and send to the other party. His firm but reasonable approach gets the job done, and in my case, was all I needed to settle the matters at hand. His prices were very reasonable and he is pleasant to work with. I have already passed his card on to friends looking for a great attorney. I will be using him again to represent me for any necessary matter in the future.

Great attorney!
Mike is a great lawyer. He not only has a vast knowledge of the legal system, but he takes the time to get to know his clients and give advice based on each situation. I've used his services on a number of occations and each time he asks 'what are YOU looking to get from this?'. He cares about the clients end goals and how to accomplish them rather than just spouting off a bunch of legal jargon and collecting payment. Mike Troncellito is the first person I recommend when it comes to any legal issues. Great lawyer, great guy!!

Thank you for the wonderful words, Nathan. It is always a pleasure working with people who have bright ideas and the work ethic to get there. It makes "directing" them from a legal perspective relatively easy and extremely rewarding. Such was my experience working with you. And I hope to have the opportunity to again do so in the future. - Mike Troncellito

Exceeds Expectations
Mr. Troncellito exceeded my expectations in starting my own business. He took the time to give me an education about the benefits of creating your own company or LLC and the pitfalls to avoid. He took the time to understand my situation and how even my family played into this decision. Mr. Troncellito's work ethic is tremendous. He delivered ahead of schedule and allowed my LLC to hit the ground running. Mr. Troncellito is excellent in client communication inside and outside of the office. Any questions were answered quickly through either phone call or email; whichever was warranted. Value describes Mr. Troncellito's services. He made the experience of starting my own business fun and exciting. He is someone I whole-heartedly trust.

Mike gives lawyers a good name
I hired Mike for a personal matter. Mike immediately gave me a 10+ page intake form, which was helpful to put my story down on paper before I consulted with him. Then, when I met him, he grilled me for almost an hour. However, at the end of the meeting, I found myself not wanting to leave. His candor and bluntness was refreshing and even charming. I found myself entranced by his advice and wishing my time wasn't up. But in the end, I knew that if he worked this hard to prepare for this meeting, then he would work twice as hard to protect me and fight for my interests. And in fact, he did. Mike had a full command of my case and my facts and represented my interest valiantly. If you're looking for a lawyer to provide honest, candid advise, then you should talk with Mike. Mike is your legal answer.

very happy client
I was so pleased by the outcome from my car accident. I didn't have to deal with all the back and fourth from the insurance. I was able to focus on my healing. I will recommend their service to anyone I know in an accident.

Saved by Troncellito and associates
These people helped me out when no other attorney would. They took the time to understand my case and more importantly, they understood me. Everything was done right away and they kept me involved in every step of the way. They won my case and got my bills paid and some additional cash for me. I can't thank them enough for taking this stress out of my life. I would recommend them 110% and send them anyone that needs their help. Thank you Troncellito & Associates!!!!
