Michael S. Raff, Esq. graduated Magna Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. from NYU and received a J.D. from Fordham School of Law. He is a Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court. He serves on the New Jersey Association of Justice (formerly ATLA-NJ) Board of Governors, is a member of Passaic County Bar and the American Association of Justice (AAJ). He was also accepted into and a member of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). He is a frequent lecturer at various personal injury / wrongful death relation legal education seminars.

When not immersed in the law, legal theory, and victim advocacy, Mike enjoys time with his daughters and wife. Shockingly, they don’t want to hear Mike’s stories about a day of lawyering. He is a health and fitness nut and like his brother (and partner), he is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu addict. (Yes, sadly, his younger, smaller brother is far better at BJJ than he.) Additionally, he is in a constant search for fantastic hummus.
