Michael’s early career included seven years of construction litigation; which he credits as having taught him not only how to resolve disputes, but how to avoid them. He is proud of prevailing on a case of first impression in the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit; which unfortunately was abrogated a number of years later based on newer United States Supreme Court decisions. Michael frequently recalls sage advice he received from a mentor many years ago: “Every contract ends; always plan for the end.”

Michael lives in Minnesota and is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts, Minnesota and New York.
