About Me

I am a fourth generation Washingtonian and grew up in Lakewood and attended Charles Wright Academy.


Before the birth of my daughter, I was very active in tennis having been the chair of the Pacific Northwest Tennis Association's Sportsmanship Committee and having umpired at 4 Davis Cup ties, the Pan American Games, the Federation Cup,  several U.S. Open finals as well as  other professional tennis events. Along with Brian Parrott and Tom Vozenilek, I was responsible for bringing the only professional tennis exhbition ever conducted in the Tacoma Dome--featuring Vitas Gerulaitis and Jimmy Connors.


My involvement in sports led to my being named to the Washington State Olympic Committee and to a volunteer position with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


Whether it be tennis umpiring or volunteer work or raising my daughter or the practice of law, I always give my best effort and have a track record of positive results based largely on that effort

  • Jon Michael Zimmerman

    Mike is a fantastic lawyer whose practice is devoted to representing those accused of criminal offenses. Mike is extremely diligent, listens to his clients, and comes up with a plan to help them during a difficult time in their lives. He's also a very personal guy and an attorney with whom you can have a good conversation. I've known Mike since he was a public defender. Both a regular person's and a lawyer's lawyer, Mike has more than 25 years' experience as an attorney, with some of those years spent as a judge. Mike has represented people accused of felonies and misdemeanors, and he understands the criminal courts inside and out. For people who are seeking a strong advocate who will fight for them, Mike is an excellent choice as he'll go the extra mile.
