Michael Dicker, CPA, JD

Partner Emeritus

Always take time for the good things in life, the same as you make time for the other things.

For a man who has accomplished so much during his career at Topel Forman, Michael Dicker considers one of his greatest achievements as simply “being around so many smart, interesting and really nice people,” referring to both clients and employees.

In addition to his degrees, credentials and knowledge, Michael offers the perspective gained by vast experience. He has knowledge in a wide variety of tax topics and he also offers planning for life milestones including business organization and dissolution, marriage, divorce and retirement.

Growing up in Cleveland, Mike gets excited about his hometown sports teams, and is a wellspring of baseball trivia. His favorite place in the world? Any ballpark on a beautiful July night. To Mike, “It’s timeless.” But since games actually do end, he also enjoys traveling and frequenting theatrical productions with his wife.
