Geneva, New York

Attorneys at Our Firm

Geneva is located at the northern tip of Seneca Lake, the deepest and largest of the Finger Lakes in water volume. Geneva bills itself as the "Lake Trout Capital of the World", and a Lake Trout Derby is held once a year. It is also home to Hobart & William Smith Colleges and is proud of its ethnic diversity.

Mike Bersani, one of the personal injury lawyers of Michaels & Smolak, has resided in Geneva since 1995 with his wife, Alejandra Molina, and two children, Nico and Sebastian. Because of Mike's strong connections with Geneva, the firm has many, many Geneva clients. Several Geneva law firms refer all their personal injury and medical malpractice cases to Michaels & Smolak. They do so because of the firm's standing as one of the top personal injury and medical malpractice firms in upstate New York.

Although the firm does not have an actual "office" in Geneva, Mike meets with Geneva clients either at his home at 20 Maxwell Ave, or at the law offices of other Geneva attorneys. Clients from Geneva are also welcome to visit our Auburn office, directions to which can be found HERE.

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!
★★★★★
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.

★★★★★
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
