Michael Spizzuco is an Associate in the Firm’s Commercial Services Group.

Mr. Spizzuco’s practice areas focus on the defense of litigated matters of general business litigation, products liability, personal injury, professional liability defense and employment matters. Michael also has experience handling complex business and financial fraud litigation, as well as counseling clients in litigation-avoidance strategies. He has participated in all facets of litigation, from initial case evaluation and discovery through arguing dispositive motions and trial.

Throughout his career, Michael has prosecuted and defended clients in a wide variety of matters, including general breach of contact/fraud issues, general business litigation, and emergent relief applications. While he advises his clients to employ and utilize alternative dispute resolution processes, he prepares his clients for litigation by taking a methodical and analytic approach to each client’s particular legal issue. Michael has significant experience in providing counsel to clients who face consumer fraud, new and used motor vehicle sales, franchise practices and general litigation issues. He has successfully tried cases in New Jersey and has obtained favorable results for clients in both mediation and arbitration proceedings.

While attending law school, Michael participated in multiple legal clinics, advocating on behalf of pro se litigants in the Southern District of New York and alleged juvenile criminal offenders in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Essex County. His competitive drive in law school and practice stems from his former martial arts career, where he obtained eleven world championships.

Prior to joining Coughlin Duffy, Michael worked in private practice specializing in commercial litigation and consumer fraud defense, with a large portion of his practice dedicated to defending new and used automobile dealers, as well as residential contractors and other home improvement businesses.
