Michael grew up in the South (Kentucky, Tennessee, and Louisiana). After his father passed away, he moved to California. He put himself through college, obtaining a 4 year college degree in just 3 years, from the University of California, Irvine, in 1984. He then went on to graduate from one of the nation’s finest law schools, University of California, San Francisco (Hastings College of the Law), in 1987. Michael believes his best education was working for a large grocery store where he started as a box boy and quickly became the evening store manager.
He started his career working for an insurance defense attorney where he represented individuals and corporations accused of wrongdoing. He quickly worked his way up to a position where he was the lead attorney and his work was in high demand. Thereafter, it was quite natural for him to start working as the attorney for the injured. .
Michael has a strong work ethic and attention to detail. This has allowed him to help his clients receive the maximum recovery and millions of dollars from insurance companies.Education
