About me

I have lived and worked in the Cincinnati area my entire life.  Raised in Montgomery, I graduated from Sycamore High School in 1992.  I then went to the University of Florida and graduated with a degree in Advertising in 1996.


Despite loving the weather, I missed Cincinnati and returned to get married and start a family.  My wife and I have two children who both attend Lakota Schools.


I graduated from the University of Cincinnati School of Law and have practiced Criminal Law and Domestic Relations since 2004.  I recently moved my office to Pendeleton Square in order to help with the revitalization of Over-The-Rhine.

    I endorse this lawyer. Mike is a first rate lawyer. His knowledge of the law is second to none but more importantly, Mike's knowledge when it comes to navigating the criminal justice system is his strongest attribute. Mike knows how and does get the best results possible for all his clients. If I ever found myself on the wrong side of the law, my first and only call would be to Mike.
