Michael Greenslade is a senior member of the Tofer and Associates team and the managing attorney for the firm’s litigation department. Mr. Greenslade joined Tofer and Associates full time in 2008 after serving in a consulting and advisory role with the firm from 2004 to 2008. Mr. Greenslade has experience in all aspects of Consumer and Personal Injury Law having previously managed the firm’s Pre-Litigation Department. Deeply committed to economic and social justice, Mr. Greenslade believes that the current contingency fee system for Plaintiffs in injury cases affords many injured persons, who financially could not otherwise receive good legal care, real access to our complicated legal system. Mr. Greenslade believes strongly in fighting for the individual Plaintiff against the mega wealth and resources of the corporate insurance giants.
Prior to a mid-life career change and starting his legal career in 2002, Mr. Greenslade was involved, for over a decade, in Sales Management with a number of Pharmaceutical Companies. Mr. Greenslade’ s Pharmaceutical Industry training has served to give him a strong foundation to understand complex medical and health insurance issues that arise in injury cases and an ability to grasp difficult medical and injury concepts.
Mr. Greenslade’ s passion for the law extends to his commitment to social, racial and economic justice that extend beyond his role at Tofer and Associates. Mr. Greenslade has worked on a number of progressive political campaigns on the National, State and Local levels and is a proud card carrying member of the ACLU and NLG. Mr. Greenslade is guided by the words of Desmond Tutu who proclaimed “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor” AND Cesar Chavez who famously observed, “We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own” An avid Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Rams fan, Mr. Greenslade is the proud father of a 24 year old son, Jordan, who recently graduated from Occidental College.
