Michael has practiced in the areas of commercial and business litigation since 1989. His focus is serving the needs of small to medium size businesses including construction, accounting, medical, retail, design services, insurance services, telecommunications and electronics, and banking.


Michael recognizes that a client’s needs start long before a lawsuit is filed, and his objective is to provide assistance to anticipate potential problems before they become problems. Avoiding litigation is often more valuable to a client than winning a lawsuit. When a lawsuit is unavoidable, Michael is committed to representing his clients vigorously and cost-effectively in the litigation. He believes that the greatest service a lawyer can provide is objective, reasoned counsel to assist a client in reaching its personal or business objectives, whatever they may be. He prides myself on providing legal assistance within the means of the client.
