Counsel to the Firm, Indianapolis

Mike is Of Counsel at SKO in the Banking & Financial Services, Real Estate, Business Services, Trust & Estates, and Tax & Estate practices. He joined the firm in 2022, when SKO merged with Katz Korin Cunningham, where he had been practicing for 26 years.

Mike concentrates his practice in contracts, estate planning, guardianships, loan document preparation and review, probate administration, real estate matters, tax and business entity formation. He also works with and represents homeowners and homeowners’ associations regarding association governance, covenant enforcement, and other legal issues. Additionally, Mike advises other types of nonprofit entities in formation, organizational documents, and in applying for tax exemption.

He believes in providing all clients with personal and caring legal services, whether working with individuals on their estate plans or preparing loan documents for a bank. He believes the first step in representing clients is listening to and understanding their concerns. Mike is committed to telling his client's story and protecting their interests in a document without legalese.

After obtaining his undergraduate degree, Mike spent a year preparing individual income tax returns for a large national tax preparation company and a small public accounting firm.
