Michael Cupero

Trial Lawyer

Michael Cupero is a dedicated advocate for those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence or misconduct of others. He is committed to protecting the rights of our clients and to helping them secure the compensation they need to get their lives back on track.

Based at our headquarters in Austin, Michael focuses his practice on motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, premises liability, burn injuries, and many other personal injury matters. His favorite aspect of working at Zinda Law Group, however, is the opportunity he gets to build relationships with his clients.

Michael graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English and Spanish from the University of Notre Dame. As an undergraduate, he also spent time studying at Fundación Ortega y Gasset in Toledo, Spain, an experience that has given him an enhanced understanding of diverse cultures and backgrounds, which he implements into his professional life every day.

He went on to earn his juris doctorate from the prestigious Baylor Law School, which is perennially ranked as one of the top law schools for trial advocacy in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The recipient of the Dean’s Academic Excellence Scholarship, Michael distinguished himself in law school as a member of the Student Bar Association, and he was named to the Dean’s List multiple times. Moreover, he was awarded the Strasburger & Price, L.L.P. Moot Court Award and the Norton Rose Fulbright, L.L.P. Advocacy Award after winning Baylor Law’s Strasburger & Price Moot Court Competition.

Before joining our attorney team, Michael gained valuable legal experience clerking at personal injury law firms in Houston as well as at Zinda Law Group at the end of his second year of law school. Active in his professional community, he is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the Austin Young Lawyers Association. His experiences have pushed him to work tirelessly toward securing the best results possible for his clients.
