Michael joined PKF Lawyers in 2018. Michael’s areas of focus within his legal practice are business transactions, all steps and stages of real estate transactions (commercial and residential), real estate development, financing transactions, corporate structuring, and wills and estates.
Michael prides himself on being available for his clients and providing excellent customer service. It is Michael’s belief that the key to a successful lawyer-client relationship is to maintain open lines of communication and for your lawyer to always be available to you.
Michael is able to offer a valuable perspective to his clients as he is able to view matters from both a business and a legal perspective. He believes his business sense was established at a young age working various sales jobs, and most importantly from his late father, who himself was a successful small business owner. This perspective has led to Michael’s unique ability to understand what a client is looking to achieve from a business standpoint, and work with his clients to implement his legal knowledge to their business. You will rarely hear Michael say “no”, he will instead utilize his knowledge of the law, and his knowledge of his client’s situation to provide his clients with viable options, even in the most complicated scenarios. Michael’s greatest attribute is his ability to make the deal work.
When Michael is not working with clients, he enjoys playing hockey and golf. He also places a tremendous emphasis on spending time with family and friends.
