Michael graduated from Pepperdine University School of Law, where he was the founding managing editor of the school’s Dispute Resolution Law Journal. After spending the next decade honing his skills as a civil litigator in Southern California, Michael relocated to the Bay Area to pursue his interests in e-discovery and legal technology as a Litigation Product and E-Discovery Specialist with Thomson Reuters (Westlaw). Following his accreditation by the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists, Michael chose to return to active practice.
