Clyde, New York

Clyde, a village in Wayne County, is located within the Town of Galen, northeast of Geneva. The law firm of Michaels & Smolak has represented several Clyde residents in recent history, including a client who sustained severe burn injuries when inappropriate objects were burned in a fire, causing an explosion.

Most of the firm’s clients from Clyde and Wayne County are referred to the firm by local lawyers who know and appreciate the firm’s reputation for aggressive, but personable, representation of personal injury and medical malpractice victims. Another source of referrals to the firm is from former Wayne County medical malpractice and personal injury clients who were satisfied with the result Michaels & Smolak achieved for them.

The firm encourages potential clients to call and have one of the firm’s lawyers grant a free consultation. This allows the firm to decide whether the case is one it wishes to handle. The firm handles only legitimate claims, not frivolous ones, and requires that the injury be significant or serious, not merely minor. After the free consultation, if the case is accepted, a lawyer will go to the client’s house to meet with him or her, or the client is also welcomed to the firm, at the client’s preference. The firm’s main office is in Auburn, New York. Directions to the Auburn office can be found HERE.

★★★★★
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
