"Business owners are hard-working, innovative, optimistic, and inspiring people. I take pride in helping business owners resolve the legal disputes that stand between them and their success.”
Michael watched a childhood friend’s four-person start-up grow into a multi-million dollar success story, and has been inspired by the power of small business ever since. Unlike most attorneys, Michael listens more than he talks. He understands that every business is different, and he achieves better results for his clients by taking the time to analyze their unique objectives.
Michael won his first breach of contract case a month after he was admitted to the Georgia Bar. A short time later, Michael earned a hard-fought victory for a deserving client in a three-day jury trial, and he has been fighting for small business owners ever since.
That said, Michael knows the best solutions for his clients are often earned outside of the courtroom. As a registered mediator, Michael has mediated hundreds of cases and understands the value of the alternative dispute resolution process. At the end of the day, Michael believes the best legal victory is the one that provides the greatest benefit to his clients’ bottom line.
Michael grew up in Winter Park, Florida. He and his wife Allison currently live in Peachtree Corners, Georgia. Michael enjoys playing golf, reading success stories, and spending time with family and friends.
