Mike was born in Phoenix, Arizona. As a military brat, he has lived in numerous locations, including Texas, Mississippi, Montana, Arizona, Japan, and the Philippines. In 1983 he moved to Washington and soon began working in the insurance industry.
Mike worked in health insurance, starting as a medical claims processor and eventually becoming the Microsoft Claims Supervisor. At some point along the way, Mike found his niche in health insurance subrogation, specializing in self-funded ERISA plans.

He works closely with clients, providers, adjusters, opposing counsel, and others to help clients achieve the justice they deserve.
Mike is married and has a feisty cat named Moxie and a sweet dog named Josie. He enjoys playing fantasy football, visiting theme parks, and is addicted to iced mochas with brown sugar. Mike also loves to travel and has the goal of visiting every fantastic place in the world!
