Mike was born in California, but spent the bulk of his childhood growing up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Mike initially attended University of Illinois for Electrical Engineering as a James Scholar, but ultimately completed his undergraduate education at DePaul University and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science with high honors. He went on to attend law school at John Marshall Law School in Chicago and graduated in 2006. The majority of Mike’s early legal experience focused on creditor rights work for the City of Chicago before serving as in-house counsel for a publicly traded corporation where he focused on contract work and risk analysis. Prior to coming to UpRight Law, Mike spent four years at Total Attorneys, a legal marketing company, where he served as Director of Account Management. Mike made the move to UpRight Law in August of 2015, and has since served as our Managing Associate overseeing Partner Relations for the firm.
