| SSI/ WORKMANS COMP ATTORNEY
He represents individuals and their family members as a fierce advocate who fights for their rights as well as counselor who advises them how to proceed in obtaining and maintaining these entitlements.
THREE DECADES OF LITIGATION AND COUNSELING SPECIALIZING IN WORKERS COMPENSATION, SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSD) SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME (SSI) AND MEDICAID ELIGIBILITY CONCERNS.
Because enough claims that start with an injury become claims that end in disability, over the last 30 years Michael A. Roth has developed an ardent specialty practice in workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability (SSD) Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and related Medicaid eligibility concerns. He represents individuals and their family members as a fierce advocate who fights for their rights as well as counselor who advises them how to proceed in obtaining and maintaining these entitlements.
The 1960s brought a revolution of thought and new analysis to American jurisprudence and Mike has spent the last 3 decades trying to get his arms around it. Attending evening classes at Thomas M. Cooley Law School, he was selected to be part of the national appellate advocacy squad for his research, writing and oral advocacy skills. During the day, Mike was an advocate for Michigan Protection and Advocacy Service where he worked on behalf of individuals who were labeled developmentally disabled and mentally ill. It’s where he forged his vocation that would professionally and personally be fixed on vindicating the rights of the individual especially those in extreme financial need.
From his plaintiffs’ practice nestled in Petoskey, Michigan, his civil cases were composed of SSI, SSD, auto no-fault, civil rights, product liability and premises liability. This was squared with an equally aggressive criminal defense docket.
Being born and bred in Brooklyn, NY, Mike (aka Rocks) says you can take the boy out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the boy. He’s ecstatic about being embraced by Joumana Kayrouz Family and working with the best brother and sister attorneys in the state in an area of the law he loves.
