Meet Our Talented Team

Michael Kramer


Mike is a lifelong Alaskan and has practiced law in Fairbanks since 1996. Prior to opening his own law firm in 2012, he served as a partner in two large full-service firms, accumulating a wide variety of experience in all areas of law. He now focuses on cases that are likely to end up in court. Kramer and Associates are dedicated to providing efficient and effective representation to all clients and to only accept those cases within their areas of expertise. Mike has conducted trials in Fairbanks, Yakutat, Juneau, Tanana, Tok, Kenai, and Anchorage. He proudly represents individual Alaskans in courtrooms throughout the state as well as institutions, businesses, and remote villages.

Mike has a particular interest in representing victims of governmental negligence, or bad faith conduct by public employees, and in particular, representing foster children harmed while in the custody of the State, students abused by school officials, and the families of inmates who have died in prison. Since 2012, he has obtained verdicts and settlements for abused children in excess of 12 million dollars. He also specializes in easement disputes, natural resource law, and DUI defense.

Reilly Cosgrove


Before becoming a partner at Kramer and Cosgrove, Reilly had been an associate attorney at the firm for eight years. He devotes much of his practice to general business litigation but is most passionate about representing Alaskans who have been harmed by government agencies. Many of his cases are against school districts, the Office of Children’s Services, and the Department of Corrections.

Prior to coming to work at Kramer and Associates, he worked with Mike at a large, full-service civil firm and also worked at the Alaska Public Defender for three years. Reilly has been the first chair on approximately twenty trials. He has represented clients in Utqiagvik, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Juneau, Nome, Unalaska, Sand Point, Akiachak, Bethel, and Nunapitchuk.

Reilly graduated cum laude from the Gonzaga University of Law where he took a special interest in Native American Law. His professors included U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and he was published in the school’s journal.

When he is not at work, Reilly spends his time fishing, hunting, skiing, and playing soccer.
