A consummate team player, Mike is personally dedicated to navigating his clients through the challenges associated with an industry where laws and regulations are constantly evolving. Mike’s clients include financial institutions, mortgage companies, loan servicers, and collections agencies. He offers comprehensive experience in advising on consumer and commercial workouts and collections. He is also skilled in bankruptcy and general banking litigation related to consumer and commercial transactions for clients ranging from community banks and credit unions, to the largest national banks.
