Meridian, New York

Meridian is a village in Cayuga County, New York, with a population of about 350, located near the north town line of the Town of Cato, west of Syracuse, New York. The community was settled in 1804 and incorporated as a village in 1854. Michaels & Smolak’s office, located just south, in Auburn, is the law firm of choice of many Meridian residents. Recent clients from the Meridian area include a man who was playing softball when a player from the opposing team unnecessarily and violently ran into him, causing him to sustain a broken shin and ankle, which required surgery with plates and screws.

In the personal injury and medical malpractice field, Meridian and all of Cayuga County are dominated by the Auburn law firm of Michaels & Smolak. Although there are many lawyers in the County, there is only one Cayuga County firm that limits its practice almost exclusively to this type of case. The firm’s stellar reputation in the field of accident and malpractice cases extends throughout Central New York. The firm also has offices in Syracuse and Liverpool.

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
