About me

Attorney Michael “Mike” Ziegler represents consumer and commercial clients in foreclosure defense, bankruptcy, collection matters, and various other civil litigation issues. Attorney Ziegler’s focus, when working with his clients, is to understand their individual situation; a remedy that may work for one client may not be the right fit for another.
