Michael Mastrangelo

Michael has been with the Law Offices of Neal Rosenberg since 2017. Michael’s commitment to advancing educational opportunities for all students began in a middle school classroom in the South Bronx where he served as a Teach for America corps member. Following his time as a teacher, Michael sought a career in protecting access to quality education through legal advocacy. 

Michael earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Johns Hopkins, Master of Science from Pace University, and Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School. During law school, he worked with The Door, The Children’s Law Center, represented students in NYC DOE suspension hearings through the Suspension Representation Project, and mentored high school students through Legal Outreach. He was also a founding member of Brooklyn Law’s Education Law Project. Upon graduating law school, Michael received an Equal Justice Works Fellowship to implement a legal services project of his own design at the Children’s Law Center. During this time, Michael advocated on behalf of children in New York City family court proceedings by providing legal counsel with regard to special education rights, family court representation, and disciplinary hearing representation for hundreds of kids. Thereafter, Michael spent a year as a staff attorney at the New York City Department of Education’s Office of the General Counsel where he litigated and resolved special education lawsuits. Michael is also an adjunct professor of law at Brooklyn Law School.
