Too often it seemed like the people who desperately needed legal help usually had the most difficulty finding it. Michael’s goal in founding the Feeney Law Firm is to make sure that all people have the same access to legal help, regardless of their circumstances.

In this role he ensured that the various departments within the firm were operating according to applicable laws and regulations, and confirmed that any content released to the public by the firm adhered to all ethical and legal standards set forth by various regulatory bodies.

Michael wanted to make sure clients understood what was happening with their cases and that the firm was there to help them get what they deserved.
Michael began his career in finance as a market compliance analyst at the Boston Stock Exchange. There he analyzed various data to assure compliance in all trading activity on the exchange. From there he moved onto the trading floor of the exchange where he worked for years as an equity trader. His time on the exchange floor provided Michael with great insight into how the market operates and where customers would need to be protected in their investment opportunities. From there Michael moved on to become a Senior Fund Administrator at an international bank where he worked with numerous hedge fund clients.
