Michael grew up in Los Angeles, California. He migrated to the east coast where he completed his BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After finishing his undergraduate degree, he moved back to California to pursue his law and MBA degrees at Loyola Marymount University. He completed his J.D./M.B.A. in 2013. Understanding the inefficiencies existing in an ancient profession, he co-founded LawKick.com, one of the first marketplaces for connecting lawyers with potential clients. Michael focused primarily on the financial management, business strategy, and business development of LawKick. After 2 years of operating LawKick, Michael and his team discovered another big gap in the legal profession, the client intake process. With his co-founder Aaron George, they developed Lexicata, the industry's first cloud-based client intake software. It creates a seamless client intake process in which new clients can fill out forms and sign engagement letters online from any type device while providing automation and organization for the firms to better manage the process.
