I graduated from the University of Michigan Law School and went on to hold clerkships for the Honorable George R. Corsiglia in the Allegan Circuit Court and for the Michigan Court of Appeals. Since entering private practice in 1993, I have participated in numerous high visibility cases throughout Southwest Michigan.
I have also worked for one of the largest law firms in America, Dorsey & Whitney. Dorsey & Whitney employed over 330 attorneys and had offices in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Brussels (Belgium), London (England), and Paris (France). While demanding, Dorsey & Whitney prepared me for legal practice at the highest levels. I bring the same high quality of legal representation to Ottawa, Allegan, and surrounding counties.
My practice includes criminal defense, drunk driving, personal injury, wrongful death, divorce, family law, general civil litigation, wills and trusts, corporate law, and medical malpractice. I am committed to excellence. My broad-based litigation experience and expertise insures that my clients are very well represented in the courtroom. Call today and put my expertise to work for you.

I have known Mike Villar for more than 12 years. He is, hands down, one of the best litigators I have had the opportunity to meet in my 25+ years of practice. He is smart, thinks outside of the box and is knowledgeable in many areas - criminal, real estate, family law, business matter. I have used Mike personally as a mediator and referred hundreds of cases to him on a wide variety of matters.
