MICHAEL V. LONGO – Attorney/Founding Member
I have over a decade of litigation experience representing clients in a variety of legal matters, with a special emphasis on personal injury claims, and am admitted to practice law in both the state and federal courts of Massachusetts and New York.
My legal accomplishments are a product of my tireless work ethic, organizational skills, attention to detail and preparation which, when combined with my personable demeanor make my interactions with clients, colleagues, adversaries, jurors and judges congenial and effective.
I am extremely comfortable in a courtroom having successfully tried cases, drafted and argued motions and appeals, and negotiated numerous six figure settlements on behalf of my clients.
I believe much of my success is fueled by my experience working for both insurance defense and plaintiff’s firms, enabling me to analyze each fact pattern from all angles and develop a litigation strategy tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of each case.
If given the chance to meet you and ultimately, have the honor of representing you or your business, I am confident that you will be satisfied with the level of representation received from the Longo Law Group.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.

In addition to English, I am able (and enjoy) to communicate directly with clients in Spanish, and to a much lesser extent, Italian. I believe my ability to do so enhances my relationship with clients since they are able to communicate directly with their attorney, and not through a translator.

What I do When I’m Not an Attorney:
When not practicing the law, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and two adorable children. I also enjoy playing and coaching hockey, as well as coaching soccer and baseball. I love to run and have completed two marathons, and one half marathon, with aspirations to complete a few more before my body fails me. My participation in the 2006 Boston Marathon was as a member of the Bringham and Women’s Hospital Charity Team which raised an incredible amount of money.
