Million-dollar outcomes in personal injury cases
Michael Cunningham represents accident victims who have suffered serious, life-changing injuries. With his help, these individuals are often able to obtain significant compensation for their injuries, giving them the ability to start moving forward again.
For the past 30 years, Mike has been enormously successful in representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice, auto accident, and premises liability cases. Much to the dismay of his adversaries, Mike has obtained countless verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million. Mike practices across the country, having secured large verdicts and settlement awards in several other states, including California, Ohio, and Illinois.
Mike is proud of the fact that, as a young man, he obtained the rank of Eagle Scout. In fact, those close to Mike know that he still embodies all that an Eagle Scout is supposed to be in that he is trust worthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, cheerful, brave, and reverent. Not only does Mike live by these traits in his personal life, but he attributes his success to bringing them into his professional life, as well.
Mike takes time to give back to his community. On Saturdays, he volunteers with the Good Counsel Church’s PB&J outreach program that provides food, coffee, hot chocolate, clothing, and other items to an outdoor soup kitchen in Detroit. He also sings and plays guitar for elementary school children in Detroit during the winter holidays and throughout the year.
Outside of the office, Mike’s hobbies include playing guitar and golf.
