Mick believes the best legal representation and advice starts with an attorney’s ability to provide a well-reasoned perspective on the issues and the client’s potential exposure, and from there provide zealous advocacy in pursuit of the very best possible outcome for the client taking both litigation-specific and general business interests into account. Whether that involves a trial, appeal, and/or resolution short of litigation, the client’s best interests are paramount.

He spent fifteen years with The Hanover Insurance Group in its New Jersey Staff Counsel office prior to joining BMGZ.
