Trumansburg, New York

Attorneys at Our Firm

Trumansburg, a village within the Town of Ulysses, is located northwest of Ithaca, near the scenic Taughannock Falls, in Tompkins County. It is home to the nationally famed Finger Lakes Grass Roots Festival of Music and Dance. Michaels & Smolak has, over the years, represented several clients from Trumansburg and surrounding areas, including most recently a medical malpractice victim who sustained permanent scarring and disfigurement after errors were made during surgery. The firm also currently represents the family of a woman killed by falling rocks in Taughannock Falls State Park in a case against the State of New York.

Michaels & Smolak represents only those who have significant or serious injuries, but not minor ones. Likewise, it takes on only legitimate claims, not frivolous ones. Potential clients are encouraged to call the firm for a free telephone consultation to see if they have the type of claim Michaels & Smolak would like to pursue. If the firm accepts the claim, the next step generally is a meeting at the client’s home, or at the firm’s office in Auburn, at the client’s preference.

Directions to the Auburn office can be found here. The firm also has offices in Syracuse and Liverpool, and represents injured clients all over upstate and central New York.

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
