About Michael

I lived in New York City 20 years, first as a law student at New York University and then practicing real estate law. In September, 2015, I decided to return home to Fresno and make a career change which would allow me to more effectively help others. I am currently a Part-Time Lecturer at Fresno State University, teaching Evidence as well as Business Law.

Being an attorney was very good for a very long time, and it taught me skills which I could not have learned any other way. A very important part of my practice was advising clients -- i.e. teaching them -- about the law. I also learned a great deal about client relations and services, having run a successful solo office for more than six years.

Very thankfully, this experience has translated well to the classroom. I have been able to impart my extensive knowledge of the American legal system at the college level. I attempt to present material in a way which allows students to think though a problem, and understand the solution, rather than simply telling students the answer.

In addition, I graduated from UC Davis with a double major in Chemistry and Political Science. This has provided me with a solid foundation to tutor science, math and social sciences. During my final year at UC Davis, I worked as a Chemistry tutor.

I would very much like to assist any student who feels like working together would be beneficial.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I am an attorney admitted in New Jersey and New York. I, thankfully, passed the Bar Exam in each state on the first attempt. I practiced law for more than fifteen years, and am now teaching Business Law as a Part-Time Lecturer at Fresno State University.

Law

I received a Juris Doctor from New York University School of Law in 1998, and am admitted to the Bar in the States of New York and New Jersey. I practiced law in New York City for approximately seventeen years, six of them as a solo practitioner.

I am currently a Part-Time Lecturer of Business Law at Fresno State University.

Law has interested and many times fascinated me over the years. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with those who could benefit from it.
