The injury and malpractice lawyers of Michaels & Smolak don't take frivolous cases. The firm takes, and then settles or tries, only legitimate cases. Michaels & Smolak is opposed to frivolous lawsuits. Although only a small number of lawyers take frivolous claims, those that do give the entire profession a bad name.

Many of our clients keep in touch with the firm long after their case has been concluded. The Firm considers its clients to be "friends".

Although Michaels & Smolak has offices in Syracuse and in Liverpool, Watertown and Jefferson County clients would probably find our Syracuse office most convenient. Directions to our Syracuse office are here. Also, the lawyers of Michaels & Smolak often travel to their clients' homes, even in Jefferson County, to meet with them and discuss their cases. Client convenience is their concern. So don't hesitate to ask for a home visit.

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!
★★★★★
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
