People who are looking for an attorney are usually at some of the worst times in their lives. Whether you’ve just been arrested or have been injured because of someone else’s negligence, Michael will be there to help you and your family through the turbulent waters of the legal system.
Admitted to practice in the Courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Michael is a litigator who started his career clerking for the Honorable Vito P. Geroulo in the Court of Common Pleas of Lackawanna County. After learning how the legal system works from within a judge’s chambers, he began advocating in the criminal justice system as an Assistant District Attorney in the Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office. He would later be appointed as a Special Prosecutor, assigned to the Northeastern Pennsylvania Auto Theft and Insurance Fraud Taskforce which has the jurisdiction to prosecute cases in 13 Pennsylvania Counties. He would later be named the Deputy District Attorney and Chief Prosecutor of the Felony Drug and Gun Crime Unit and was appointed as a legal advisor to the Lackawanna County SWAT team.
During his time as a prosecutor, he had the opportunity to gain crucial experience in handling cases in the criminal justice system. He would hone his skills in legal research and writing, the questioning of witnesses and became comfortable arguing and presenting cases in the courtroom. Through his tireless work ethic, he prosecuted an array of crimes including Murder, Assaults, Gun Crimes, Felony Drug Offenses, DUI’s and other crimes, taking several cases to verdict in front of a jury.
After his time as a prosecutor, Michael shifted his legal practice to the private sector where he could utilize the knowledge, experience and time in the courtroom he had gained early in his career to advocate for clients on a much broader scale. Still maintaining his work ethic and passion for the law, he has helped clients with their criminal defense, car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, landlord tenant disputes, dog bites and much more. No matter how big or small a case may seem, if someone comes to him for legal representation, he will work hard to appropriately represent them in their time of need.
