Attorney Michael P. Hickey is an associate at Simmons Hanly Conroy, where he focuses his practice on helping individuals and families impacted by asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma. His attention to detail has helped secure millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients.
Like many of the firm’s attorneys, Michael grew up in a blue-collar home. His father was a career electrician. Michael, himself, has a background in construction, allowing him to further connect with his clients.
“When working on cases, I recognize the products listed,” said Michael. “They are products that my own family has touched – that I have probably touched.”
Prior to joining the firm, Michael represented victims who suffered from injuries caused by the negligence of others. He also spent time working as an Assistant State’s Attorney in St. Clair County, Illinois. Michael’s experience includes cases which garnered national media attention, making him skilled at handling stressful situations when litigating against national corporations.
“Above all else, what I like most about my job is being able to help others,” Michael said. “These are good, hard-working people who just don’t deserve any of the pain they received for just trying to provide for their families and put food on the table.”
Michael received his B.A. in political science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He earned his J.D. from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. Michael is licensed to practice in Illinois and Missouri.
