Michael A. Gonzales

Associate, Litigation, Akerman LLP

Michael Gonzales focuses his practice on professional liability litigation, complex insurance litigation, and coverage counseling. With respect to professional liability, he represents brokers, agents, financial planners, investment advisors, managing general agents, third-party administrators, and attorneys in litigation involving professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duties, and malpractice.

Michael also represents major insurance carriers in state and federal court litigation that poses extreme risk of loss to the company. He counsels primary and excess insurers on policy coverage issues, risk mitigation, and issues involving priority of coverage disputes. His experience includes counseling insurers on policy drafting for new and existing product lines including, pollution liability policies; professional liability policies; directors and officers policies; and commercial general liability policies. Michael’s prior experience as an insurance underwriter better enables him to understand his clients’ needs and to create business solutions to coverage issues outside of litigation.

Michael is the current Chair of the SPCA of Texas’ Young Professionals Group. He currently lives in Dallas with his fiancé Shannon and their two cattle dogs and four cats (“the zoo”). In their downtime, they enjoy working out, spending time with the zoo, trying new restaurants, and traveling.
