In 2012 Michael founded an employment law firm that represented thousands of plaintiffs throughout the state of Pennsylvania, with offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and nearly 30 employees at one point. Two years in a row named a “Fastest Growing Business” as well as “Best Places to Work” by the Pittsburgh Business Times.

As a serial entrepreneur, Michael saw a niche’ market for a boutique employment law firm (meaning one that almost exclusively handles employment cases and brands itself as such) that serves an alternative to the large firm multi-practice area experience. In 2019 Michael founded MKO Employment Law LLC which focuses very directly on each individual client and their case, but also evaluates their situation and future as a whole as it relates to litigation. Hence, the MKO credo, Providing you a path forward in your life, career, and recovering the compensation you deserve.™

Recognizing that many employment clients are in hard situations, Michael takes pride in providing sincere attention and strong representation. He is well-versed in the nuances of employment law, and can cut quickly to the most important legal and practical issues in any situation.

After dispensing thousands of legal consultations to potential clients, I can easily say it’s my favorite part of my practice. My guidance, even if MKO can’t accept them as a client, helps people immeasurably in figuring out what to do and how to move forward with their lives. I make a measurable impact every single day on many people. Who else can say that about their job? I love it. Call me. – Michael Kraemer

Michael focuses his personal practice on dispensing legal advice and consultations to the vast number of individuals seeking legal help and assistance.

Michael has studied and traveled extensively abroad, visiting and living in over 45 different countries, and you should ask him about it. He draws on this and other life and professional experiences to guide people through what is most likely the worst moment in their life.

He is admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the state of Ohio.
