Legal Representation From a Native New Yorker

Michael H. Joseph grew up in Coop City in the Bronx and then moved to Long Island as a teenager.

He eventually started his own legal practice that serves people throughout New York City and Westchester County.

A Commitment
to Social Justice

Mr. Joseph's sense of social justice is built on his family’s New York roots and his experiences in law school in New Orleans.

As the descendent of railway workers who suffered tragic injuries working in the New York railroads, Mr. Joseph knows firsthand the pain and devastation that an injury can cause.

While attending Tulane University Law School, Mr. Joseph participated in the criminal clinic to handle felony cases. During this time, he represented clients throughout New Orleans who could not afford legal representation. This experience revealed how poverty leads to systemic injustice for people with low incomes, and the kind of difference a committed attorney can make for people in these underserved communities.

Mr. Joseph fights for people who were wrongfully accused, cheated by businesses, or injured because their employer cut corners.

Absolutely honest - Michael does what he promises. He's a downright killer and advocate for his clients. In my case, when opposing counsel used multiple delay tactics, he literally called the judge during the depositions and forced opposing counsel to produce critical evidence. Michael is very smart and incredibly hard working. Bottom line ... if you need help - he's the guy you want to hire.

I want to thank the law office of Michael and Joseph, they handled my case that when I came to them I was told by previous counsel that I had no case, once the law office of Michael and Joseph seen my case they said I have a case and they could win it and that’s exactly what they did. Whenever I was concerned they responded very quickly. I would recommend them to anyone of my family and friends. They are winners and thank them for all they did for me!!
