Phoenix, New York

Phoenix, a village in the Snow Belt in Oswego County, has snowfalls above 200 inches in most years. Sometimes that makes Phoenix tough to get to. Michaels & Smolak has represented many residents in Phoenix and the Oswego County area, including a client who sustained cervical fractures from a rear-end collision. Michaels & Smolak also currently represents 9 victims of a Phoenix home propane explosion whose injuries include paralysis, burn injuries, severe fractures and organ damage.

The law firm of Michaels & Smolak does not handle “frivolous” cases. It handles only legitimate claims brought by those injured through others’ negligence, including medical negligence, which is also called “medical malpractice.” The firm does not limit its practice to representing only “catastrophic” injury victims, but does require that the injury be significant.

Michaels & Smolak is happy to review all injury claims from Phoenix and Oswego County residents. An initial telephone conference is the first step, which is then usually followed up by a house (or hospital) visit by one of the firm’s lawyers.

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.

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
