GreicoMichael Grieco is a proud resident, family man, and business owner here in Miami Beach. Following his undergraduate career in Washington, DC, during which he worked in both the US Congress and at C-SPAN, he moved to the greater Miami area in 1997 and soon after moved to and fell in love with our city. After graduating the University of Miami School Of Law in 1999, Michael started his legal career as a Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney. As a prosecutor he learned about not only the rule of law, but its application throughout the county. Michael excelled in the office, spending a majority of his six years focused on Gang and Narcotics enforcement before becoming a supervising Felony Division Chief in 2005. 

    Michael then opened his law practice in 2007, choosing to become a small business owner. He has since built a successful boutique trial practice focused on client care. Michael decided several years ago to move his business to Miami Beach to stay close to home, and enjoys the ability to run home frequently (and also walk the dog) or receive family visits throughout the day.

    Michael has a 6-year-old son who he considers his main motivation to seek local office. He wants his son to grow up in a city he is proud of, and he was worried that Miami Beach was headed in the wrong direction due to lack of true leadership. Michael has lived in condos at 5th and Meridian Ave. and both 800 and 1000 West Avenue, as well as a house in mid-beach (47th and Alton Rd.) before settling in South of Fifth about four years ago.

    As a community leader Michael previously sat on the Board of Directors for the South of Fifth Neighborhood Association. He also sits on the Board of Governors for the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce and is a member of the President’s Cabinet for the Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation. Michael is a Mount Sinai Hospital Young Founder and sat on multiple city boards before being elected to the Commission.  Commissioner Grieco is a perpetual philanthropist, as he has organized and/or acted as title sponsor for multiple causes including Miami Children’s Museum, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and as well as both the Mount Sinai and Miami Children’s Hospitals.                                 

    Since being elected, Commissioner Grieco has maintained his election pledge for independent thought and availability. Michael even took his City Hall office door off the hinges his first week in office as a symbol of transparency in government. In his first years in office, Grieco has focused his efforts on both big and small ticket items ranging from environmental initiatives to citywide traffic solutions. Michael continues to fight for the disenfranchised and voiceless members of our community by putting residents’ quality of life above all.

    The Commissioner’s email address and phone number are provided through the city’s website.
