Lee Michaels is the senior attorney here at Michaels & Smolak. He was personally responsible for hiring and grooming the rest of us. To the other lawyers at our firm, he has been a mentor, teacher, friend, and role model. It’s good to know that others appreciate Lee, too.
Syracuse University’s College of Law is going to bestow upon him a great honor this October 20. You can read all about it on the Syracuse University College of Law website. Lee’s list of achievements is too long to include here, but you can check it out on that website. Suffice it to say Lee was a top law student at Syracuse, then because a top personal injury lawyer in the Syracuse area, and a top teacher of trial practice at the Syracuse College of Law, and has been a terrific community leader in many capacities.
