Ep 325: Michael DeBlis Interview - The Acting Attorney

"Don't be afraid of rejection." - Michael DeBlis

Michael is a trial lawyer who has a passion for the theater. He is known for his knowledge of international tax law, creativity in his practice, his charismatic personality, and his unyielding dedication to his clients.


Michael is a former public defender for the Office of the New Jersey Public Defender.


As a graduate of the National Criminal Defense College, Michael has trained under some of the best-known criminal defense attorneys in the country. That experience has taught him that justice for a person accused of a crime is only won through a full understanding of the client and the case. To that end, Michael attempts to understand each client’s case as a convincing narrative, not just as a set of innocuous facts and arcane legal rules. 


Michael is a prolific writer and a passionate blogger. He has written articles that have been featured in leading tax journals such as CCH Journal of Tax Practice and Procedure, Global Tax Weekly, and ABA News Quarterly. He has also been featured on the media affiliates of several major media networks, including NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, and CNN. 


Michael is a living example of the tremendous power that comes from combining passion, preparation, persuasion, and positive communication in the courtroom. His courage and relentless work ethic have earned him a reputation as a zealous advocate and one of New Jersey’s rising stars of the legal profession.
