Bio

Mike Wilensky was born and raised in the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area. A product of our public school system, he graduated from North Springs High School, where he played basketball and ran cross-country. He is the husband to a beautiful wife of almost 10 years and they have two wonderful daughters. Mike not only lives in Dunwoody, but he is also a Dunwoody small business owner of a law practice located near Perimeter Mall. Mike is an experienced leader with the heart of a public servant. After graduating cum laude from the University of Georgia, he earned his J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law. While in law school, a passion to protect and advocate for others developed. There he served as a federal law clerk to United States District Court Judge Richard D. Bennett, worked a full year with the Baltimore Public Defender felony division, and handled an appeal in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals under the Third Year Law Student Act. Mike continues his pursuit of justice on behalf of Georgia citizens who have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one or life-changing injuries, and his courtroom experience fulfills his desire to ensure all Georgians receive equal protection under the law. As an advocate for his clients, Mike has received the highest rating available in both Legal Ability and Ethical Standards by Martindale-Hubbell as an AV Rated Preeminent Attorney. In addition, in 2019 Mike was awarded Judicial AV Preeminent Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest possible distinction. Mike has been recognized among Georgia Trend's "Legal Elite" 5 times and was selected for the second consecutive year to become a member of The National Trial Lawyers- Top 40 Under 40 for civil plaintiff attorneys. In 2017, 2018, and 2019 Mike was recognized by the American Society of Legal Advocates with the award of 2017 Georgia Top 40 Litigation Lawyer Under 40 in the State of Georgia.
