In the personal injury and medical malpractice field, Cayuga County, and Throop, are dominated by the law firm of Michaels & Smolak. No other firm in the County dedicates its practice almost exclusively to this very specialized field of law. While most personal injury firms are located in big cities such as Syracuse or Rochester, Michaels & Smolak is unique in that it is based out of Auburn, with satellite offices in Syracuse and Liverpool.
