Michelle L. Levine dedicates most of her time to appellate work in catastrophic personal injury and medical malpractice cases. After over a decade focusing on corporate litigation-related and advisory matters, Ms. Levine decided to follow her passion for assisting others during their most personally challenging times.

Ms. Levine began her career at a major corporate law firm, where she gained broad experience in commercial litigation, international arbitration, and insurance matters in federal and state courts across the country. Her practice included appellate work in various industries and jurisdictions, including several submissions to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ms. Levine also spent significant time defending pro bono clients in immigration and housing court, including extensive briefing and arguments to support those in true need of justice. She then worked for several years in the legal department of a leading global bank, including preparing reports on significant litigation and investigations for senior management, and advising on the applicability of international securities regulations in the Global Wealth Management division. During Ms. Levine’s time in the corporate sector, she developed an ability to analyze complex legal issues and propose creative solutions - skills that she continues to incorporate into her writing and advocacy for clients of the firm.

Ms. Levine graduated from Northwestern University in 2004 and received her law degree from Duke Law School in 2007, where she was the Managing Editor of the Duke Law Journal. While in law school, she also spent a summer interning for Judge Richard J. Holwell in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. She is admitted to practice in New York (2008) and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (2009).

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Very compassionate, very efficient and top rate! If you want a team of good lawyers that will not only work hard to win your case but knows how to listen and feel for you as a victim of medical malpractice, this firm is your only choice. Anthony Gair, was always there for us all throughout the case albeit the distance from NY to Manila! Words cannot express how thankful we are to him and his team. Thanks a million!" D.F.
★★★★★
"Everyone I communicated with at this firm made me feel like I was part of their family. My needs, feelings, and concerns were carefully considered and given the needed attention. My counselors were available whenever I needed them and became my personal friends. They came highly recommended and lived up to their reputation. I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, that I was valued, and not just a possible source of income for the firm. They earned their fees, and you will find that they will also earn your trust." N.W.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
