Michael is counsel in the Litigation practice of Mayer Brown’s Chicago office and is a member of the Firm’s Consumer Litigation and Class Action Defense Group. He has successfully defended national financial institutions in numerous actions involving claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”), and various state unfair and deceptive trade practices statutes. He has represented financial institutions in both state and federal litigation—both at the trial and appellate level—as well as in matters before federal regulators.

Michael’s primary focus is on the pretrial stage of litigation, devoting an extensive portion of his practice to briefing dispositive motions that eliminate claims before trial and other significant pretrial filings.

In addition to his consumer class defense practice, Michael represents businesses and individuals in complex commercial disputes involving software licensing and franchise agreements.

Michael is a member of the Firm’s Electronic Discovery & Records Management (EDRM) group, and serves on the Firm’s Recruiting Committee.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2008, he was a writer for numerous television studios and networks, including CBS, Warner Bros., Paramount and 20th Century Fox.
