In the most recent edition of the Dade County Bar Association Bulletin, Attorney Michael Levine was interviewed as Board of Directors member for the Young Lawyers Section of the DCBA. He discusses where his professional path led him and how he ended up meeting our firm.
We've transcribed the interview below for easy reading:
Q: Tell us about your professional path and how you ended up where you are today.
I started my career in the litigation group at Bilzin Sumberg. I really enjoyed my time there because the people were fantastic. After that, I clerked for Judge Paul Huck, which was an incredibly rewarding experience. I am fortunate to call Judge Huck one of my mentors, and he was pivotal in helping me decide what I wanted to do next.
I always envisioned working on behalf of people, and I knew I wanted to be in the courtroom. After hearing about Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain from a fellow law clerk (thank you, Lindsey Friedman!), I reached out to David Bianchi. A few days later, we met for lunch and I met the other attorneys and learned more about their practice.
It sounded like a perfect fit, and I feel the same today as I did when I joined in August 2015. Our firm represents people and families across Florida in catastrophic and wrongful death cases. One of the things I like most about our firm is our team approach. Each of us is involved in strategizing and preparing for trial even if we are not one of the primary attorneys on the case.
Q: Why do you care about what you do?
My family and my clients.
My family has been so supportive, and I never want to let them down.
My clients are going through the worst times of their lives. Their access to future medical care, financial security, and a sense of justice is dependent on our work. Knowing that pushes me to hit the ground running every single day.
Q: If you weren't a lawyer, what would you have done with your life?
Foreign service officer.
Q: Whom would you most like to meet?
