Hello there blog readers! This is Dave Kalabanka, Mike Bersani’s partner. I’ve hijacked his blog for today to interview him about an important award he just got: Mike has been selected as the “Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year” for the Syracuse metropolitan area. A publication called “Best Lawyers in America” bestows this honor on the lawyer with the highest overall positive peer-feedback (judges and other lawyers rate him higher than any other lawyer) for a specific practice area and geographic region. Yes, Mike was the highest ranking attorney in the field of representing injured folks in personal injury litigation for the entire Syracuse Metropolitan area. Given this tremendous honor, I decided to take some time from Mike’s busy schedule to interview him about it:
DAVE: Mike, first, congratulations! That’s quite an honor, and well deserved. Did you know this was coming?
MIKE: Thanks Dave, and no, it caught me by surprise. There are many outstanding personal injury lawyers in the Syracuse area, including right here at Michaels & Smolak. I had no idea I would be selected.
