Biography

Mike helps parents protect the future of their families when the child welfare system is knocking at the door. He began his career at the Jackson County (MO) Juvenile Office, where he had the privilege of serving hundreds of families involved in the social services and juvenile justice systems. From his experience prosecuting child abuse and juvenile delinquency cases, he understands how intrusive and devastating the process can be. His goal is to make sure clients walk into court knowing their options and what to expect along the way.
