After completing his military service in the United States Air Force, Mike moved his young family to Boulder ,Colorado so he could attend law school. After graduation, Mike's first legal position was with State Farm Insurance Companies at its corporate headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois. As a corporate attorney, his work was broad-based and challenging but was transactional in nature. He wanted to try his hand at litigation but working as in-house counsel did not afford him the opportunities for litigation.
Mike left State Farm to join the United States Navy as a member of the Judge Advocate General's Office and moved his family to Subic Bay, Philippines. Serving as a JAG officer meant that Mike learned the skills of a trial attorney from the best and most dedicated trial attorneys that he's had the honor of working with to date. Mike opened the doors to his firm in 1981. Today, he serves as the firm's managing partner and divides his time between the administrative responsibilities of running a small business and in the courtroom where he remains active and engaged on the legal side of the firm's practice.
