P: 713.588.0446

Before joining the Defense Base Act group at SBSB Eastham, Michael worked for seven years as a paralegal, managing complex litigation cases, assisting in investigations, and providing translation services for Spanish-speaking clients. Here, he gained a deep appreciation for the process of litigation, and learned what it took to formulate a winning strategy. It’s experience that has served him well ever since.

Michael’s coworkers view him as committed, always willing to help out, and a valuable resource to his clients. He understands the law is complex, and works hard to make litigation an easier experience for those he represents.

At home, Michael enjoys spending time with his family, his three dogs, wood/metalworking, and going on vacation.
