After practicing corporate and business law with the reputable international firm of Sidley Austin in Los Angeles, Mike returned to Eugene, the city of his alma mater, to focus his practice on local business and real estate transactions. Mike’s calling cards are his attention to detail, mastery of complex legal concepts, and ability to communicate those concepts in a simple and concise manner, all of which enable him to provide excellent and timely service to his clients. Mike is admitted to practice law in Oregon and California.
Mike focuses his time and expertise on business and real estate transactions of all types and sizes, including the formation, purchase and sale of businesses; the financing of business enterprises; commercial real estate sales and leasing; and general business matters. Mike also frequently advises clients concerning complex commercial contracts.
Mike is an Oregon native who enjoys being active in his community. He spends much of his free time coaching high school softball and competitive club softball. Mike is also a dedicated family man, and when not on the softball diamond, he can usually be found with his kids at one of their many sporting events or other activities (and loving every minute of it!). Mike also enjoys camping, hiking, and road trips to Central Oregon to spend time with family.
