Mike was raised in the tiny farming community of Haubstadt in southwestern Indiana. He made the move “north” to Bloomington where he attended Indiana University and majored in accounting.
Mike started his professional business career in 1993 when he moved to the Kansas City area and began working for QuikTrip, a chain of convenience stores nationally recognized for their quality of employees, their extensive management training programs, and excellent customer service. Mike excelled in the management program over his seven years in Kansas City. He believes this experience is invaluable in his understanding of people.
Mike eventually made the move back to Indiana where he continued to thrive in the retail world as a district manager. His passion for building great teams in the retail environment is directly related to his belief that the best criminal defense can only be achieved through the team concept. Simply put, he believes a group of great people working toward a common goal can achieve great results.
Making the decision to go to law school, Mike earned his Juris Doctorate cum laude from Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis in 2008. He used his experience in law school to sample as many areas of the law as possible. While attending law school full time Mike worked as an intern at Indiana Legal Services – Senior Law Project, the Indiana Board of Tax Review, and the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies. Mike often held more two internships at any given time. He also was an Article Editor for the Indiana Health Law Review. With all of these activities and maintaining excellent grades, Mike still volunteered his new legal skills, earning the Norman Leftstein Award of Excellence for Pro Bono Service.
Upon graduating from law school, Mike opened his own practice in Franklin, Indiana. He has worked the past two years as a solo practitioner. Mike is proud to say that he tried his first case to a jury after only practicing alone for six months. He has also written two appeals with legal arguments that were novel enough to be published by the Indiana Court of Appeals.
