Michael R. Francisco

Associate   |   St. Thomas

Michael Francisco has never met a hurdle he could not overcome. With his wide range of experience and strong work ethic, he perfectly represents the values of the firm’s indelible Founders: passion, respect, and an unwavering devotion to exceptional client service. Whether before federal, state, or territorial tribunals, Michael has shown a high aptitude for handling complex civil matters with a proven track of success. As a former Assistant Attorney General with the Virgin Islands Department of Justice, Michael successfully argued before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in employment, trademark, and tax disputes. He has also acted as both lead counsel and a representative of the Virgin Islands in highly consequential state antitrust and consumer protection enforcement actions. Michael has also appeared before numerous judicial and administrative forums in the Virgin Islands, including the Virgin Islands Supreme and Superior Courts and the Virgin Islands Public Employees Relations Board.

Michael exudes a unique combination of confidence and charm that endears him to everyone he meets. He has built a stellar reputation in the Virgin Islands legal community and innumerable relationships within all levels of local and federal government. He is able to bring these advantages and the firm’s unparalleled resources to bear in supporting his client’s objectives and achieving their desired outcomes. Michael is an active member in the Young Lawyers Division of the Virgin Islands Bar Association, constantly seeking to expand his network and influence within the Territory of the Virgin Islands.

When Michael is not working, you can likely find him enjoying quality time with family and friends. He loves to travel and is always willing to strike up a conversation or lend a helping hand. He finds purpose in being of service to others and shining a light on injustice, wherever it may be.
