For over a decade, Michael has represented injured people and their families. He has settled their cases when appropriate and when necessary, taken their cases to trial. For his work in representing his clients, Michael was granted membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, The Top Trial Lawyers in America. Michael has also earned an "AV Preeminent" rating in Martindale Hubbell. This rating is a testament to the fact Michael's peers, those who work with him and those who have had to litigate against him, rank him at the highest level of professional excellence in terms of professional ability and ethical standards.
Michael is also an active member of the American Association for Justice, American Association of Motorcycle Injury Lawyers, ABATE, Illinois Bar Association and the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association. Michael works hard to protect his clients from insurance companies and their attorneys who force injured people to court to increase company profits instead of taking responsibility and paying valid claims.
He was born in Chicago and graduated from Marquette University Law School in 2002. While in school, Michael studied civil litigation and trial work. He also studied at the National Sports Law Institute. Michael joined Kelly Law Offices in May 2003 and currently focuses his practice on trial work, including personal injury and wrongful death litigation.
