Miguel began his legal career as a Judicial Law Clerk in Forsyth County, Georgia. During this time, he worked for 6 Judges drafting judicial orders, preparing legal memorandums, and organizing bench books with up-to-date case law. From the very beginning, I had the opportunity to observe countless trials, day in and day out. He learned strategy, presentation, and fearlessness. It was also during this time where he was given the opportunity of creating the judicial guide for Abandoned Vessels that were common on Lake Lanier.
Miguel was recently honored with the 2023 Top 10 under 40 Attorney Award by NAOPIA.
The next leg in my legal journey was in the position of a criminal research analyst for a large cyber risk management company. It was my responsibility to dig deep into personnel records and files, look for discrepancies, and evidence of illegal activity.
Only one month before the bar exam and one month out of law school, I was in a severe car accident. It was then that I decided to take on the insurance company myself. It was here where I learned first hand the importance of building and managing a personal injury case. Yearning to learn more and gain a proper mentor, I next applied as a law clerk to an Atlanta, Georgia law firm that only focused on personal injury cases. Here I was able to see the entire process through the eyes of a top Litigation Attorney.
It’s amazing how doors open when you are exactly where you are supposed to be. After passing the Georgia bar, a position opened up at a local law firm as an Associate Attorney and the rest was history. Now into my legal journey for a little over 6 years now and close to 1k successful cases resolved…I’m just getting started.
