Attorney Michael A. Prieto is a partner at the highly respected Atlanta law firm of Prieto Marigliano Holbert Prieto, LLC. After joining the firm, Mr. Prieto established the nursing home negligence practice, and he has since devoted his career to assisting the victims of nursing home abuse and negligence and the families who have lost loved ones to negligent caregivers.

Thanks to Mr. Prieto's dedication to protecting the rights of the elderly and disabled, he has built a reputation for excellence, which has led to numerous honors. His cases have been featured in numerous national newspapers and television programs, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, and has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, The Today Show and The Oprah Winfrey television broadcast.
