About Michael

I am a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2012, receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Policy, with distinction, and a minor in Political Science.  I graduated from Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2015.

Throughout my time in Atlanta, I had the opportunity to work at both small and large firms, focusing on both litigation and transactional work. During 2013, I worked as a Summer Associate at ColemanTalley, LLP, a Valdosta, Georgia firm focused on all stages of real estate and corporate transactions. After graduating from Emory in 2015, I was a Contract Attorney at the national labor and employment law firm Littler Mendelson, working on a class action wage-and-hour case, focusing on the beginning stages of litigation and discovery.

At Emory, I was elected to the Order of the Barristers, Managing Editor for the Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review, Finance and Operations Director for the Emory Moot Court Society, and led the Charleston Moot Court team. I earned Emory’s unique Transactional Certificate, awarded to a select number of students who completed a rigorous curriculum focused on real-world legal skills.
