I am Michael who was raised in Hanover, Pennsylvania, a small town just over the Maryland Pennsylvania line north of Baltimore. I earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Columbia University, New York City, in 1966. Upon completion of college, I was chosen to be a Melton Research Fellow while pursuing my PhD in philosophy at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Upon completing my work at Ohio State, I began law school at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. While in law school, I was a law clerk with several Cleveland law firms, In 1972 I began working with a boutique real estate law firm and continued through my early practice experience. In the early 70s I moved to Baltimore to work with one of the large law firms in its real estate practice. In the mid-70s, I opened my own practice in Baltimore County. At one time this practice employed 4 lawyers and appropriate support staff.
I have taught philosophy at the Ohio State University and at John Carroll University in Cleveland. I taught required continuing education courses to Title Insurance Agents, Real Estate Agents and Brokers, Health Insurance Agents, and to lawyers through the Association of Trial Lawyer’s of Maryland. I also lectured and taught seminars nationally to the National Association of Health Underwriters at their national conventions. Additionally, I received the Outstanding Adult Educator Award from the Baltimore County Public Schools for adult education.
I have been associated with several local charitable organizations for many years, including serving as counsel to the Baltimore Health Insurance Underwriters, Maryland Health Insurance Underwriters; member of the Board of Directors of the Maryland Chapter of the American Diabetes Association, and has served and continues to serve locally, regionally, internationally for the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, which has honored him with its highest national award in 2015 and in 2018 with the regional Lifetime Achievement Society Award.
I am sensitive and compassionate; I listen to my clients. I provide sound counsel and work with my clients to achieve practical, realistic results tailored to my clients’ needs. I will guide you in estate planning, real estate transactions, probate, and general business law and trial work. I have the experience, compassion, and drive to help.
