Mike has been representing injured workers since 2015. Along with being a co-founder of Kentucky Injury Law Center, he is the lead attorney for the Worker’s Compensation practice at the firm. Since 2017, he has handled all of the firm’s workers’ compensation claims that were unable to be settled voluntarily by the parties involved. These are often the more difficult cases, and Mike has put together a strong record fighting on behalf of these injured workers.
Mike believes that people should be held accountable, that hard workers should be rewarded, and that discipline is necessary to enforce the rules. Mike’s commitment to these values was reinforced during his service in the U.S. Army, where he was a commissioned officer, serving two deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). During his service, Mike received the Bronze Star for exemplary service in a combat environment.
Mike continues upholding these values today. He holds businesses and insurance companies accountable when their workers are injured. Mike only represents workers who have suffered permanent injuries. He works hard to help these individuals get back on their feet if possible and get back to work. He has the discipline to take matters that require litigation through to the end if needed.
After completing his military service, Mike graduated with honors from the University of Tennessee School of Law. He is licensed in all state and trial courts in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
In his spare time, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and kids outdoors, shooting, and playing basketball and softball.
