After graduating from New York University and the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law, Michael began his career as a labor lawyer, working on behalf of multiple New York City and State Labor Unions and their members. After several years in the field, he pursued a specialization in all things medical and developed a stellar reputation in the area of disability pensions, social security disability and private long-term disability claims. In the aftermath of 9/11, he helped numerous individuals who served at or near the World Trade Center site to obtain upgraded disability retirement pension benefits when the physical or psychological impact of their service became apparent, often years later (he is now helping New Jersey workers obtain similar benefits
pursuant to more recently passed legislation).
