About
I have 18 years experience as an attorney and 19 as a commercial and residential real estate broker. I have handled primarily real estate matters, including 8-figure transactions, but I also have extensive experience in trusts, business formation, bankruptcy, family law, and litigation. Prior to entering a general practice, I was house counsel to a large privately-held firm in the petroleum industry.

I have an MBA in Finance, taken years after my JD, and I am highly results-oriented. I put myself in the clients' shoes, with eyes on the bottom line instead of just the next document or the next fee.

"We were sued after selling a business. Our accountant tried to act as a lawyer, and he closed down a company improperly after the sale. Mike made sure the accountant was held responsible, and the accountant ended up paying for the whole lawsuit. Mike did not waste our time on unnecessary trips to California and did not do extra work to charge extra fees. We had a very good result."

Accountant failure led to lawsuit.

"I would not have though to buy property subject to a lis pendens, with pending litigation, but everything worked according to plan. At trial, Mike broke down the opposing side’s expert on the stand, forcing him to admit numerous flaws in his analysis, and Mike’s cross-examination of the other party was so devastating that she did not return to court the next day. Through savvy negotiation, minimal litigation, and patience, I was able to achieve my goals with minimal expense, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars on a unique property opportunity."
