Short Professional Biography

Prior to law school Mike worked for the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office. While at the Public Defender’s Office, which is widely regarded as one of the best in the country, Mike gained valuable experience assisting in the defense of various criminal cases.

Thereafter, Mike attended University of Arizona Law School. During law school, Mike interned with a Tucson State Judge and prosecuted cases for the Tucson City Prosecutor’s Office. After graduating in the top third of his class, he was selected to be a staff attorney with the largest law enforcement agency in the country, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

While working at U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, Mike was exposed to various state and federal law enforcement agencies and their practices. Mike handled a diverse caseload including trade, immigration, asset forfeiture, Fourth Amendment issues, ethics, and federal employment issues before the M.S.P.B., E.E.O.C., and arbitrators. These unique experiences inside the system allow Mike to provide a competitive edge to his clients when they find themselves facing the very scary proposition of losing their job, criminal prosecution, asset forfeiture, or anything else these powerful institutions can bring to bear.

Choose wisely, pick Mike to be your advocate.
