Biography

An accomplished attorney who enjoys an enviable track record of success, Michelle Arbitrio litigates, tries and appeals complex professional, commercial, coverage, life insurance, ERISA and employment disputes in state and federal courts and defends securities arbitrations before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

She takes particular pride in her skillful defense of those professionals for whom the need to manage potential exposure has never been greater, including insurance agents, real estate agents and mortgage brokers. Intimately familiar with the business of law, the business of insurance and the delicate calculus of balancing one against the other, Michelle commits herself to addressing the needs of in-house counsel, underwriters, brokers and other insurance professionals - many of whom consider her as much colleague as counsel.

A practicing attorney for 12 years, Michelle's instinctive leadership abilities are already very much in evidence. She trains and manages a talented team of associates and paralegals and is regularly consulted by fellow partners who appreciate her sound perspectives and ideas. In fact, her ability to work cross-practice frequently spawns innovative and cost effective resolutions of her clients' most challenging legal issues. While other adjectives commonly ascribed to Michelle include honorable, approachable and tenacious, perhaps she's proudest of being considered a lawyer's lawyer who garners the enduring respect of colleagues and clients alike.
