Biography

Michael was inspired to become an attorney because his father always spoke highly of the profession as a foreign diplomat for the State Department. He was also heavily inspired by trial lawyers in movies he would watch as a child like Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men, admiring their passion and persuasive speaking skills. His family travelled all over the world during his childhood with his father’s profession, so Michael was able to see multiple cultures, leading to his love for travel today. When he isn’t taking on the big insurance companies, Michael loves to golf, go to LA sporting events, and build the life he always dreamed of.

Michael focuses on the various facets of law that relate to accidents and bad faith insurance claims. Focusing entirely on plaintiff work, Michael has developed a sophisticated ability to see value in claims where most attorneys don’t. His passion for litigation and fearless advocacy make him one of California’s rising stars in his field.

Childhood Hero: “Barack Obama because of his ability to inspire and he was a man of action”
?Favorite Entertainment: “I am an avid golfer and my favorite shows are Narcos and Entourage”
?Most memorable case: “A week out of law school, I had to go to UCLA to represent a quadriplegic woman who was unconscious and pregnant. The family did not want the child terminated so we fought for her against council and when the child was born, they named him Michael. ”
?Charities: “Growing up in Honduras, I enjoy working with the Latin American Consulates and doing food and clothing drives in the Hispanic community”
