Michael L. Resnick originally collaborated with three other partners to form the predecessor to the law firm of Syprett, Meshad, Resnick, Lieb, Dumbaugh, Jones, Krotec, & Westheimer, P.A., where he proudly serves the residents of Sarasota, Florida. As president of the firm and with more than 35 years of experience practicing family law, he focuses on high-profile marital dissolution and post-dissolution cases that involve substantial marital assets. He also represents clients in custody, alimony, child support, visitation, complex property division issues and modification of marital settlement agreements.

Mr. Resnick completed his undergraduate studies at Windham College and his law degree at the New England School of Law in 1970, where he made the Dean's List and won the American Jurisprudence Awards for Pleading & Practice and Federal Jurisdiction. He has been admitted to the Florida Bar, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District Court of Florida and the U.S. Supreme Court. He also belongs to several other professional organizations, including the Sarasota County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity and the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers.

As a graduate of the New York Military Academy, Mr. Resnick values patriotism for this nation. He demonstrates his commitment to our country by encouraging employees to participate in America's National Guard and Reserve Force, and the National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve has recognized him as a patriotic employer. He has taught several topics for the Continuing Legal Education section of the Florida Bar, the Guardian Ad Litem Program and Hampton Seminars. He is serving a three-year appointed term on the Twelfth Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee, which began on Dec. 1, 2010, and ends Nov. 30, 2013.
