is a Shareholder in Kubicki Draper’s Miami Office. He has spent his entire career as an attorney working at Kubicki Draper, starting in the West Palm Beach office before moving back to the Miami area.
Michael obtained his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Florida International University, with the hope of helping others as a counselor. While the work was fulfilling, Michael always believed his talents could be used in a better way, which led him to begin his legal career at St. Thomas University, College of Law. Michael’s background in Psychology has been instrumental in his role as a counselor at law, and he has found that this background, when combined with his passion for problem-solving, provides a uniquely effective approach to every legal representation, no matter the complexity.
Michael’s problem-solving skills help him defend cases in a wide variety of practice areas including class action defense, construction defect litigation, premises liability, and commercial litigation. He thrives on the new challenges and issues presented by every matter he handles while keeping focused on helping his clients navigate the often-stressful process of litigation. Michael has also been selected as one of the Florida Super Lawyers Rising Stars from 2014-2019.
When he is not handling matters in the courtroom, Michael enjoys following sports, history, and traveling with his wife—he has been fortunate enough to visit more than fifteen countries. For Michael, “life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” He is motivated by the uncertainty of life and believes that you have to spend as much time as possible doing what you love with the people that you love. When asked what the best advice ever given to him was, he said “give it your best and everything will fall into place.” We couldn’t agree more.
