Michael Faust

Michael is excited to be part of The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., while he builds his life and career in the Virginia Beach area. Michael graduated from The American University Washington College of Law in May of 2020 after graduating from Old Dominion University in May of 2017 with a B.A. in History. Michael’s areas of practice at the Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., include working closely with Mr. Bennett on litigation for Personal Injury, Traumatic Brain Damage, Nursing Home Malpractice, and Wrongful death. While in law school, Michael worked as a law clerk in Silver Spring, Maryland, learning general civil litigation. Michael joined the Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., shortly after taking the Virginia Bar Exam on July 28 and 29, 2020, which Michael passed.

Since attending Old Dominion University for his undergraduate education, Michael knew he wanted to return to the area one day. Michael finds that Virginia Beach presents many opportunities to visit family in Stafford and on the Northern Neck and pursue his interests as an avid outdoorsman and follower of both NCAA and professional sports. The area is also dog friendly which is important for Michael’s dog, Parker, a border collie.

Michael is generally outgoing and at ease speaking with people from all walks of life about a variety of topics. Michael is highly organized and goal-oriented which allows Michael to stay focused on the task at hand and follow tasks through to fruition. These traits have served Michael well through his undergraduate and graduate studies as well as in his employment as a law clerk prior to becoming an attorney.
