Born and raised in Southern California, Michael graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the Marshall School of Business in 2008. He then went on to attend the University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law, where he was a member of the Hale Moot Court Honors Program. He earned his Juris Doctor in 2011. Additionally, Michael has been a member of the California State Bar in good standing since 2011.

Beginning his legal practice in the world of civil litigation, he gained experience with labor and employment, partnership disputes, trade secrets, and intellectual property law. Always interested in civil liberties and constitutional law, Michael also broadened his legal knowledge by incorporating criminal defense into his practice. Michael developed a wide range of practical courtroom skills through his experiences defending the accused from charges ranging everywhere from homicide to shoplifting.

Using this broad legal foundation, Michael now devotes his law practice to Homeowners Association Law and Common Interest Developments, handling all manner of complex real property litigation, contract disputes, and assessment collection cases.

In his free time, Michael enjoys cooking, playing bass, reading, and watching baseball.
