About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Mike Ivancie, Esq. has extensive experience handling criminal matters and dealing with federal and state law enforcement.  His experience coupled with zealous client-first approach achieves results.


Prior to law school Mike worked for the San Francisco Public Defender's Office.  Widely regarded as one of the best Public Defender's Offices in the country, in San Francisco Mike gained valuable experience assisting in the defense of various criminal cases.


Thereafter, he then attended University of Arizona Law School.  During law school, Mike interned with a Tucson State Judge, and prosecuted cases for the Tucson City Prosecutor's Office.  After graduating in the top 25% of his class, he took a job as a staff attorney with the largest law enforcement agency in the country, U.S. Customs and Border Protection.


While at U.S. Customs and Border Protection Mike handled a diverse caseload including trade, immigration, asset forfeiture, Fourth Amendment issues, ethics, and federal employment issues before the M.S.P.B., E.E.O.C., and arbitrators.  While working at U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, Mike was exposed to various state and federal law enforcement agencies and their practices.  All this experience inside the system allows Mike to provide a competitive edge to his clients when they find themselves facing the very scary proposition of criminal prosecution, asset forfeiture, or anything else these powerful institutions can bring to bear.


Choose wisely, pick Mike to be your advocate.
