Cato, New York

Cato, a town in Cayuga County, New York, located northwest of Syracuse, New York, has a population of about 3,000. The name was given to it by the surveyors of the Military Tract, and has a classical origin, as do many of the towns and villages in this area. The Town of Cato contains a part of the village of Cato and also contains the entire village of Meridian.

Many of Cato’s residents have chosen the nearby law firm of Michaels & Smolak, located in Auburn, as their personal injury or medical malpractice lawyers. Recent clients from Cato include a man who sustained neck and back injuries after being struck by another vehicle while driving a garbage truck, and another man who was struck by a vehicle that had crossed into his lane of traffic after being struck from behind by another driver.

Most of the cases Michaels & Smolak takes in from Cato are referred to it by other Cayuga County lawyers. Those other lawyers recognize the firms outstanding reputation in the field of personal injury and medical malpractice law. The firm is, in fact, the only one in all of Cayuga County that limits its practice almost exclusively to personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Michaels & Smolak, though based in Auburn, is a regional Central New York firm with satellite offices in Liverpool and Syracuse.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
He is one of the top lawyers in central New York & has the accolades to show for this, but in my book he's the top lawyer in the country. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Bersani & to have had him on my team! Matthew
★★★★★
I admire the amount of background work he did which was instrumental in getting me a very good settlement. Also, having never been involved in a personal injury lawsuit, Michael was very patient explaining the legal issues. You're in good hands with Michael Bersani and the firm of Michaels & Smolak. Richard
★★★★★
Dave took over my wrongful death case after it was badly messed up by another lawyer. He was dogged in his pursuit of all the information needed to make a solid case, and he succeeded in bringing it to a very satisfactory settlement. He was honest and straightforward, kind and compassionate through meetings, depositions, court appearances. I highly recommend him. Christine
★★★★★
Dave has handled our legal matters for over 20 years. Always there when we needed him. We were so happy with his professionalism and results that we referred him to several friends. If we ever need this type of service again, Dave will be the first and only call we make. Jackie
