Michael, a partner, concentrates his practice on general business/commercial and employment litigation in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies throughout New York and New Jersey. He represents management and employers in all types of workplace disputes, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, noncompete and trade-secret matters. Michael defends employers in wage and hour suits before the Department of Labor concerning various issues, including overtime pay violations, the misclassification of workers' exempt or independent contractor status, "off the clock" work and tip theft. He also handles complex business litigation matters, including partnership and corporate disputes, real estate and property litigation, business fraud, unfair competition, shareholder and brokerage claims.

Michael's practice includes drafting and negotiating business contracts; operating, joint venture and partnership agreements; handbooks; and employment/independent contractor, noncompete and separation agreements. Michael also advises management on the vast employment laws affecting businesses, including wage and hour compliance, noncompete and trade-secret protection, hiring and termination, policies and procedures, leaves of absence and disability accommodation.

Michael was selected for inclusion on the 2016 New Jersey Super Lawyers Rising Stars© list--lawyers who are 40 and under, or who have been practicing for 10 or fewer years, and have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. In 2014, Michael was named one of the New Jersey Law Journal's New Leaders of the Bar, a listing of the top 50 lawyers under the age of 40 to watch in coming years.*
