Syracuse University College of Law to Honor Michaels Bersani Kalabanka Founder and President Lee Michaels

Lee Michaels is the senior attorney here at Michaels Bersani Kalabanka.  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.

As I said before, Lee has been a great mentor, teacher and friend to all of us here at Michaels Bersani Kalabanka.  We are not alone.  One of Lee’s former students (Lee has been teaching Trial Practice as an adjunct at the law school for almost three decades) had this to say about Lee on the College of Law website:

Lee Michaels is one of the College of Law’s most loyal supporters.  He has been an adjunct professor for many years and has made lasting impressions on literally a generation of alumni.  Lee Michaels was one of the biggest reasons I decided to become a personal injury lawyer.  My very first personal injury case was referred to me by Lee.  I have known Lee for over 25 years.  I have worked on cases with him, helped him teach his class, sat on boards with him, and socialized with him on countless occasions.  Lee Michaels has a tireless work ethic, takes his responsibility as an advocate for the injured very seriously, has a sense of compassion and caring for others, is an extremely loyal friend, and has a deep sense of pride in his law degree from SU.”

We at Michaels Bersani Kalabanka agree.  The award is most deserved. If you know Lee, don’t hesitate to congratulate him at

Keep safe!

Mike Bersani
