Voytek Law, LLC was founded by Michael T. Voytek in 2005. Michael's vision has always been to provide high quality legal services at affordable rates. Initially, he exclusively represented a select group of corporate entities, entrepreneurs and hedge funds on transactional and corporate matters. His practice was strictly a traditional Wall Street one. Today, in addition, he has expanded his offerings to include small businesses, trusts and estates, tort law, and other general legal matters in order to provide a fuller range of services to his clients.
Michael graduated from Fairfield Prep in 1983, from Fairfield University in 1987, magna cum laude, and from Emory Law School in 1990, with distinction. At Emory, he was the Managing Editor of the Emory International Law Review and was published in the Emory Journal of International Affairs. Michael is admitted to practice law in the States of Connecticut and New York. He was also admitted in both Georgia (currently on inactive status) and Massachusetts (currently on "Retired" status). Michael is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court in Connecticut.
Michael started his career at Lord, Day and Lord, a Wall Street law firm in 1990. He worked principally on mergers and acquisitions matters in its New York office. After a brief stint in Boston at Goodwin Procter, Michael worked at Paul Hastings law firm in its New York and Atlanta offices for over 10 years. While at Paul Hastings, Michael acted essentially in an outside general counsel capacity for corporate entities, officers and directors and entrepreneurs in many diverse industries. After leaving Paul Hastings, from 2003 thru 2004, he bolstered the corporate practice of Goodkind Labaton in New York working on general corporate, contracts, and transactional matters such as m&a, corporate finance, securities and private equity deals. In 2005, he started the Voytek Law Firm (which is now known as Voytek Law, LLC).
In addition to his legal work, Michael is active in his community having served on a variety of charitable boards of directors (most notably on the Boy Scouts' Connecticut Yankee Council's Executive Board as its VP of Legal Affairs and on the Board of the Boys and Girls Club of Bridgeport). He also served on the Board of the Bethel Women's Recovery Center as its General Counsel. He was the Chairman of the Steering Committee of the Connecticut Eagle Scout Association.
Michael has also been involved with local community groups in Bridgeport - serving as Chairman of the Committee to Ungag the People, as Special Counsel to the Boys and Girls Club of Bridgeport and the Derail the Jail Committee and as general counsel to various NRZs in the City of Bridgeport. By way of additional pro bono work, he has helped indigent tenants at the Security Deposit Clinic in Waterbury and Bridgeport.
In his spare time, Michael has made appearances on "Bridgeport Now", a local cable news television show where he has provided commentary on local and state legal and political issues. He is also a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Roma Club and is actively involved with the New Canaan Society (in its Fairfield New Canaan/Darien and Manhattan chapters and as its General Counsel) and the Bridgeport Republican Town Committee. He is a member of the Yale University Art Gallery.Michael is proud to be an Eagle Scout.
