Michael Hersh is a founding partner of Hersh Kirtman Injury Law. He dedicates his practice entirely to representing and helping those who have been injured, suffered harm, or lost loved ones because of the negligence or wrongdoing of others. Michael has successfully obtained numerous seven and eight-figure jury verdicts and settlements, achieving justice for his clients, while helping them recover funds for needed medical care and future financial security.

Michael began his career at an international law firm representing Fortune 500 companies in complex commercial and business disputes. Despite a long record of legal successes, Michael always felt something was missing; a human connection and the feeling that he was truly helping people. In what became a pivotal moment in his career, Michael represented a financial institution in a case involving an elderly couple who had been defrauded by a sham lending company. They had acted in good faith, but were victims, and were about to lose not only their savings, but also their home. Michael couldn’t help but see the injustice in the couple’s situation. Michael orchestrated a creative resolution whereby the bank was satisfied, and the couple was able to keep their home, providing them the unexpected residential security they deserved.

He decided then that he wanted his career focus to be on people; on assisting those who have been hurt, harmed, and suffered loss.

Michael joined a prominent South Florida personal injury firm where he rose to become the managing partner, handling catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. He focused on a small volume of cases fighting the largest institutional defendants on behalf of clients who had suffered the most severe and unfortunate losses.

Michael also supplemented his experience by attending and graduating from the Trial Lawyers College, one of the country’s premier trial schools taught and attended by the nation’s foremost litigators and trial instructors. There, Michael fine-tuned his trial techniques and honed his ability to learn and tell his clients’ stories, a critical skill necessary to convey his clients’ experiences and losses completely and effectively.

Eventually, Michael fulfilled his dream of opening his own law firm when he and Ian Kirtman founded Hersh Kirtman Injury Law. Together, Michael and Ian help a wide range of clients who have suffered injury and loss resulting from medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, unsafe premises, road construction defects, sports injuries, dangerous and defective products, and other matters.
