Attorney Profile

Michael T. Hagelin is the co-founder of Hagelin Spencer LLC. From the firm's main office in Buffalo, New York, he focuses his practice entirely on civil litigation, representing a variety of defendants throughout the state at both the trial and appellate levels. During his career, Mr. Hagelin has tried more than 200 cases to jury verdict.

Mr. Hagelin assists insurance companies in cases involving motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, construction site accidents, defective products and similar matters revolving around negligence.

Finally, Mr. Hagelin counsels insurance companies that are being sued for bad faith by their policy holders.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Hagelin attended the State University of New York at Buffalo and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1977. He then enrolled at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University and graduated with his Juris Doctor in 1980. Prior to co-founding Hagelin Spencer LLC, Mr. Hagelin was a partner at another Buffalo insurance defense firm. Admitted to practice before all New York state courts, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. A member of the Negligence Committee of the Bar Association of Erie County, Mr. Hagelin is also a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the New York State Bar Association, and the Western New York Trial Lawyers Association.
