Notable Legal Work

One of Michael’s most notable accomplishments involves his work in a product liability case. Seven months after he requested a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into defective Chinese-made tires distributed by the Hercules Tire & Rubber Company, the tire importer announced a massive tire recall. This exemplifies Michael’s hard work and dedication to not only his client’s, but also the public who deserve to be safe on our roads.
