Michael has litigation experience in cases involving medical malpractice. With more than a decade of medical experience as a physician, Michael is well versed in how medical care is provided and how it can go wrong. He has committed his legal career to fighting for those who have been injured by the medical system.
Michael’s medical background and skill set make him invaluable in quickly interpreting and understanding what exactly happened to his clients in the hospital or outpatient medical setting. As a member of the medical profession, Michael speaks the language and can read between the lines of dense and complex medical records. He regularly leverages his medical insight to help his clients achieve favorable outcomes in a range of complex medical claims.
Michael is an active member of the Wake County Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
Michael lives in Cary with his wife, Mariam. When he is not practicing law, he enjoys hiking, traveling, and searching for the best barbecue that North Carolina has to offer.
Michael is originally from New Jersey. He attended the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA, where he obtained his bachelor’s (B.A.) cum laude with distinction in chemistry/biochemistry and his masters (M.S.) in chemistry.
After college, Michael attended the Sidney Kimmel Medical College (formerly Jefferson Medical College) and graduated with his M.D. degree. He completed his medical internship at Cooper Medical Center in Camden, NJ, and then his residency in anesthesiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. He achieved board certification in anesthesiology and is currently a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology.
As an anesthesiologist, Michael has both personally performed and supervised a range of surgical cases and procedures across all age groups. From newborns needing stomach surgery to adults undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass to have a new heart transplanted, Michael has seen medicine work well and, unfortunately, has seen the common pitfalls and errors that can lead to a poor outcome.
Outside of the clinical side of medicine, Michael also served as medical director of his fifty-member department of anesthesiology. In this role, he worked with medical insurance companies to ensure payment, worked on hiring and firing other physicians and CRNAs/AAs, and negotiated contracts with hospital systems to ensure anesthesia coverage at numerous different sites. In addition, Michael also served as Chief of his department and sat on multiple hospital committees, including the medical executive committee. As a medical executive committee member, he saw the quality and safety issues that occur in hospitals and how these issues led to medical errors that injured patients.
Michael graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina School of Law. During law school, he was a staff member at the North Carolina Law Review and completed internships in medical malpractice defense litigation. Michael also balanced his legal studies with the practice of anesthesiology at a major academic center. There he worked on cases involving complex and critically ill patients and taught residents, fellows, and medical students. Together, Michael utilizes his background and experience as a physician and his understanding of how hospitals operate to best advocate for his clients.
