Biography

Michael is Avian Law Group’s founder and a partner at JT Legal Group. He founded JT’s personal injury practice group growing it from one employee to a practice group of over ninety employees with settlements of over $2 billion over the course of the last three years.

While running the firm, Mr. Avanesian took ownership over any and all problematic cases including partnership disputes, real estate fraud, contested probate and trust contests which were primarily driven by poor estate and succession planning.

Avian Law Group was founded as an alternative to run of the mill law firms which create Estate plans and partnership agreements without extensive consideration of issues which will inevitably arise.
