"As natives of Western New York, my wife and I were turned on to the Adirondacks after I graduated Law School. Now, having lived here for nearly 10-years we couldn't imagine a better place to call home."
Mike practices primarily out of the firm’s Glens Falls office, located in the Empire Theatre Plaza at 11 South Street, Suite 202 but is available at the firm’s main office in Clifton Park where meeting in Southern Saratoga is more convenient.

Michael frequently presents on topics relevant to his field and is "AV" rated by Martindale Hubbell - the highest rating for expertise and ethics given by the independent rating service of the legal profession.
“Elder and special need issues are an underserved area in the Adirondacks and it is important that individuals know their rights in an ever increasingly complex system. I am proud to be a part of a practice that devotes itself to providing these services.”
Mike is also Treasurer of the Warren County Bar Association, a member of the Glens Falls Hospital Foundation’s Planned Giving Council and a graduate of Leadership Adirondack, class of 2008.
