Michael has over 20 years experience handling matters involving the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice, the Minnesota Board of Nursing, the Minnesota Board of Dentistry, the Minnesota Board of Psychology, the Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP), and other health and medical boards.

Michael founded Weber Law Office -- the predecessor of Weber & Nelson Law Office -- in 2000.

  • Joseph Francis Henderson

    It is my privilege to offer an endorsement for this highly accomplished attorney. As a former colleague at the Minnesota Attorney General's Office, I gained familiarity with Michael's strong skills and breadth of knowledge on health licensing matters. He gained the strong respect of his colleagues and happened to also be highly regarded as a person. Since his work as Assistant Attorney General, Michael has transitioned his expertise to a private law practice where he gives seasoned and dedicated representation to clients facing health licensing issues (among his other areas of practice). I endorse Michael with confidence and recommend his services to anyone finding themselves in need.
