Since leaving the District Attorney's Office, Michael has developed a reputation as an aggressive criminal defense attorney who skillfully advocates for his clients. Michael has been named a Super Lawyer “Rising Star” by Thompson Reuter’s since 2015 and was selected by the National Trial Lawyers Association for their “Top 40 under 40” designation.
