Sal earned his Juris Doctorate from Wayne State University Law School. Prior to that, he earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and majored in History.

While in law school, he participated in several activities. Sal was a member of the Delta Theta Phi Fraternity, and also a board member. He was a member of the Wayne Law Review as an assistant editor for two years, where he helped to edit and produce the Law Review’s publication. He was also a member of the Wayne Law Transactional Team, where he gained experience in corporate transactions and negotiating.

Sal worked throughout law school to gain practical experience. From May 2013 to April 2014, Sal worked for the City Attorney’s Office for the City of Warren, where he gained a great deal of experience from fellow city attorneys while aiding in municipal ordinance prosecution, as well as in helping represent the city. From May 2014 to April 2015, he also worked as a law clerk for a local Michigan firm where he gained experience in the areas of business litigation, personal injury, and municipal law.

Sal follows the NFL, UFC, and college football very closely.  Although he supports all of the Detroit sports teams, the majority of his energy goes to the Lions. Most of all, on Saturdays he bleeds Blue. Sal was also on the Michigan Club Wrestling Team, and coached wrestling during a gap year between undergrad and law school. Since that time he has continued to coach when he has free time. His efforts aim to give back to a sport that gave a great deal to him.

Outside of work and sports, you can catch Sal reading, critiquing movies and television, staying in shape, and trying to gain the respect of his German Shepherd, Lady.
