Thanks to a tipster, I was thrilled to learn that Mike Grieco will be our next Miami Beach commissioner!
After graduating UM law school in 1999, Michael started his legal career as a Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney. As a prosecutor he learned about not only the rule of law, but its application throughout the county. Michael excelled in the office, spending a majority of his six years focused on Gang and Narcotics enforcement before becoming a supervising Felony Division Chief in 2005.He also has weathered severe wind conditions:
Our candidate then opened his law practice in 2007, choosing to be his own boss and dictate how the firm is run, in lieu of billing hours at the behest of someone else. He has since built a successful boutique trial practice focusing on client care. Michael decided several years ago to move his business to Miami Beach to stay close to home, and enjoys the ability to run home frequently (and also walk the dog) or receive family visits throughout the day. Michael has a 4-year-old son who he considers his main motivation to seek local office. He wants his son to grow up in a city he is proud of, and he is worried that Miami Beach may be headed in the wrong direction due to lack of leadership. Michael has lived in condos at 5th and Meridian Ave. and both 800 and 1000 West Avenue, as well as a house in mid-beach (47th and Alton Rd.) before settling in South of Fifth some 4 years back.
