Mike, a Colorado native, graduated cum laude from the University of Colorado, Denver, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. Mike then worked as a manager for a retail chain and as a land surveyor. After two years of “working in the real world,” Mike decided to return to school to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a lawyer.

In 2007, Mike was accepted to the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. In law school, he worked as a teaching and research assistant for several of his professors and focused on environmental and natural resource law. Mike also completed internships with a small public land law firm and the Environmental Protection Agency’s environmental crimes prosecution division.

Mike has been practicing law since 2010.  Mike was the domestic-judicial fellow in Colorado’s 18th Judicial District where he worked closely with judges providing research and writing draft orders. As the fellowship came to a close, Mike was offered a position as the civil and criminal law clerk for the Honorable Judge Richard B. Caschette in Douglas County District Court. Mike was also hired as the domestic law clerk for the Honorable Angela R. Arkin, also in Douglas County District Court.  

During his time as a law clerk, Mike gained significant experience in civil, criminal, and family law, and found a great interest in personal injury law. “People law,” as Mike calls it, is truly a fulfilling way to spend his days.  Mike has been in private practice ever since.

In his spare time, Mike enjoys music, outdoor activities, and spending time with his family.
