Michael works with a large number of banks and mortgage lenders and represents many licensed real estate brokers in commission disputes and licensing issues. He also handles probate and estate matters.

His work ethic was developed and refined in law school and remains at the core of his professional practice as an attorney. During his education, he invested substantial time in trial and moot court competitions at the Broward County Courthouse and clerked for many small and mid-sized firms. Michael learned important lessons from every attorney he worked for. Client relations, negotiation with opposing attorneys, practice management and courtroom decorum were all part of his real-life law curriculum. This served him well when was hired immediately out of law school by a well-respected Miami firm.

Just two years later, he and Michael Rothman partnered to form Rothman & Tobin, P.A, which after 22 successful years evolved into Tobin & Associates P.A., upon Mr. Rothman’s retirement from private practice. The Firm recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Michael has created a company culture centered around caring for the needs of its clients. Having employees invested in this mission allows him to provide great benefit and value, with the experience and expertise to back it up. He frequently lectures for real estate brokers, lenders and young attorneys on matters of real property law. He is extensively involved in the broader legal and real estate communities and is an active member of the Real Property Probate and Trust Law Section of the Florida Bar, past Chairperson of the 11th Judicial Circuit Florida Bar Grievance Committee, current President of the North Dade & the Beaches Real Estate Council, and Chairman of the Board of the Miami Beach Jewish Community Center.
