Michael graduated in the top third of his class at DePaul University College of Law. While at DePaul University College of Law, Michael received two CALI “Excellence for the Future” Awards. These awards recognize that Michael received the highest grade in his class for Evidence and for Conflict of Laws, two significant subject areas in personal injury law.

  • $300,000.00 for a minor who was injured when she was hit off of her bike by another biker who was speeding around a corner of a bike path. The client sustained scars to her face.
  • $275,000.00 for a client whose mother sustained an undocumented tibia fracture in a nursing home. The defense claimed the fracture was from osteoporosis.
