About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I'm an avid outdoors person.  When not at work, I may be backpacking, pack rafting, fishing, hunting, flying, scuba diving, rock climbing and the list goes on.


I've served in the US Military for 28 years, have travelled the world a few times over, and have a very wide range of experiences and interests.  I've burned through most if not all of my nine lives - and not all of them due to combat.  Such experiences make you appreciate life and ensuring that you can look back and be proud of the life you lived and have no regrets.  I have good relationships with many clients that share similar interests.  When considering a lawyer, you want to make sure you have good communications, among other concerns (that they are knowledable, competent, and will advocate for your best interests).  Thus, having a shared interest is one way that you can connect, and I find that it enhances the lines of communications.

Right from the first day me and my wife hired Michael as our immigration lawyer, it has been a very satisfying experience. He exceeded our expectations and I am a Green Card holder today thanks to his professionalism and competence. He is highly recommended by me.

100% Recommended Great person
The lawyer, Michael Brandabur is the best lawyer that I could've found for my immigration case. He is an excellent human being that attended me with kindness, patience, courtesy, respect and professionalism. I recommend him 100%. He doesn't play with his clients like other lawyers I've had the misfortune of hiring and who have given me a lousy service. Many thanks to the entire team at Brandabur Law LCC.

Thank you Michael
I greatly appreciate the handling of my immigration from start to finish. Michael was very clear and explained every step of the process. He was also extremely patient with all of my questions. The immigration process is very complicated and stressful, the most valuable thing to me was knowing what to do and what to expect every step of the way. I highly recommend his services.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Brandabur is a highly knowledgeable lawyer in a ton of areas. He helped my family with immigration and really gave us peace of mind through the whole thing. He was always a phone call away when we had questions. He made sure to always notify us whenever paperwork was approved or if anything was needed. He made our situation painless. I highly recommend Brandabur law for your various needs.

Mr. Brandabur was very helpful when I needed to remove the conditions on my green card in 2008. He was very knowledgeable and professional.

"Michael is a top-notch attorney with years of experience in many areas of law, including immigration, corporate law, and all manner of civil litigation. He was my mentor and supervisor, and when I left the practice to move to another state, I felt very comfortable that Michael was taking over some of my immigration cases, because I knew that my clients were in very capable hands."
