Michael Aquino worked to pay his way through college and law school and is the first person in his family to have graduated from college. After graduating SUNY Stony Brook, with honors in 1983, he went to Brooklyn Law School and competed in the Moot Court Trial and was privileged to win the Sidney Talmadge individual award for trial excellence. He graduated from Brooklyn Law in 1986, and passed both the New Jersey and New York Bar examinations on his first attempt. He was hired as an attorney by the Manhattan insurance defense firm where he previously worked as a law clerk. There, he successfully tried multiple bodily injury cases gaining substantial experience in defense strategies and tactics. Afterward, he joined one of the largest and most prominent law firms in New Jersey and litigated one of the largest environmental cases as well as complex construction defect claims, bodily injury lawsuits, and commercial disputes.

In 1995, Michael joined Salomon & Blackman, which has been representing the injured in Bergen and Passaic County since 1962. The firm is now called Salomon & Aquino, but the guiding philosophy is the same: we do what is right for you. He is a member of the Passaic County Bar Association and the New Jersey Bar Association. Michael brings 30 years of transactional, litigation and trial experience to the firm. Perhaps more importantly, he understands the tremendous emotional and financial burden that being injured in an accident can cause on a person's life and has developed methods to aggressively and swiftly achieve solid results for his clients.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
