Michael is proud to have been selected by his peers as one of the top Social Security Disability lawyers in Ohio and has helped his clients obtain tens of millions of dollars in Social Security benefits. Michael became a disability attorney because he knows what it is like to be “different”. As a child growing up in the Detroit area, he attended a special school for children with attention and behavior problems. His behavior problems were so severe in fact that he was ultimately expelled from that special school. Michael also dealt with with a range of neurological disorders including epilepsy and motor tic syndrome. When choosing a career path, it was important for Michael to find a field where he could help people going through experiences like his own as a child.
We talk with Michael about his journey, what it feels like now to have a thriving law practice and ADHD. He gives some advice to future lawyers here too. Enjoy!
