At Fogler, Rubinoff, we believe that making a difference begins with trust. Experience and sound judgment earn it. Client relationships are built on it. Results keep it.

Michael H. Appleton, Q.C.

Michael was the Managing Partner of our firm continuously since its formation in 1982 through the merger of its predecessor firms Siegal, Fogler and Rubinoff & Rubinoff, and during that 33 year period oversaw the almost five-fold growth of our firm.
