About me

In addition to enjoying my job as a trial attorney, I enjoy playing music with my two sons, Riley and Luke.  We have a rock band and have played dozens of small and large venues together.  Like us at Dad and the Accidents on Facebook!

  • Nick G. Zissimopulos

    Mike is a dynamic and energetic person and he seamlessly carries those qualities into his law practice. I have watched him the courtroom and he has the traits of an excellent trial lawyer. I would trust him with my own legal matters.
