Michael T. Benz, Esq.
Michael T. Benz is an attorney handling nursing home abuse and neglect; personal injury, and medical malpractice cases. His motto and practice is to prepare every case as though it will be a jury trial. Mr. Benz has learned that trial preparation is the key to getting the best result for his clients – even if a case ultimately settles before trial. Knowing the case inside and out is the key to success.
Mr. Benz brings vast trial experience with him to Brown Chiari LLP, having tried hundreds of cases as an Assistant Defender at the nationally recognized Defender Association of Philadelphia, before starting his own private practice in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a native “Buffalonian” he returned to Western New York in 2018 to raise his family and continue his career.
Mr. Benz graduated cum laude from Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, where he sharpened his trial skills as a member of Drexel’s award winning mock trial team. After graduation Michael became one of the first graduates to join the Drexel mock trial coaching staff as an adjunct professor.
Mr. Benz is admitted to practice law in New York and Pennsylvania, as well as the federal districts for the Western District of New York; Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and the United States Court of Federal Claims.
