"I always make myself accessible to a client. If the phone rings I answer it because the person calling needs a response now. Being able to communicate efficiently with my clients has ​allowed me to provide this high level of service."

Michael Pascu

Bio

Approachable and straightforward, Michael combines a deep knowledge of condominium law with a practical understanding of his clients’ needs in his practice at Fine & Deo. He prides himself on answering his phone when it rings not simply when it is convenient for him and offering thoughtful, real-world advice when he is asked.

Michael graduated from Queen’s University Law School after completing an undergraduate with honours degree at the University of Toronto. He holds the designation of Associate of the Canadian Condominium Institute (ACCI). The ACCI is Canada’s only condo-specific designation for condominium professionals pursuant to which the Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) identifies Michael as an expert in condominium law. Michael was drawn to the specialized field of condominium law early in his career. He particularly enjoys the changing nature of this area of law and the diverse skill-set and analytical approach it demands.

Michael writes and speaks extensively about condominium law. He has had work published in the magazines Condo Voice and CM Magazine and speaks regularly at industry conferences. Michael is also an instructor at Humber College, where he teaches a course in Condominium Law for Property Managers.
