Waterloo, New York

Waterloo is named after the famous Waterloo, Belgium of Napoleon-battle fame, and is the county seat of Seneca County. The Seneca County Court House is in Waterloo. Memorial Day is a serious matter in Waterloo. After all, it is the Birthplace of Memorial Day, and honors every year the traditional Memorial Day itself, and refuses to move the Holiday around to accommodate three-day weekends.

Just as Waterloo is proud to be the Birthplace of Memorial Day, Michaels & Smolak is proud to be the premier personal injury and medical malpractice law firm for the citizens of Waterloo. We have represented countless Waterloo residents over the years, including, most recently, a passenger in a car who sustained serious injuries when it hydroplaned and struck a telephone pole. In fact, many lawyers in or near Waterloo refer their personal injury and medical malpractice cases to Michaels & Smolak, the only lawyers in the Finger Lakes area who have developed a New York-State—wide top reputation in the field of personal injury and medical malpractice.

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
