Even before law school more than 25 years ago, Michael started his first statewide real estate abstracting company. In the years since, he has handled a variety of real estate and business transactions, served as a trust officer for a major financial institution and has managed a large title abstracting and title insurance practice covering North and South Carolina in support of commercial and residential closings, foreclosures and civil litigation. During this time, he also carried out leadership responsibilities at both the department and firm wide level.


Prior to concentrating his practice on commercial real estate and title insurance law, Michael’s private practice included general litigation and transactional law serving businesses and families. He also served as an Assistant Solicitor for South Carolina’s Third Judicial Circuit.

Michael proudly serves as a Soldier in the US Army Reserve.  He has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and has several decorations including the Bronze Star Medal and the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.  He presently holds the position of Command Judge Advocate for a Regional Support Group.
