Mike is a senior vice-president with McGuireWoods Consulting and a partner with McGuireWoods LLP. He helps clients develop strategies to address complex public policy challenges. He is a seasoned operative who understands how to integrate direct lobbying, grassroots campaigning, communications, and digital media to achieve results.

Viewed by his clients as a trusted advisor, Mike helps to lead the firm's multi-state national practice, working with clients across the country as they interact with governors, attorneys general, state legislators, and regulators. He has a wide bandwidth exposure to numerous and diverse industries (healthcare to energy to tech to transportation) and regularly interfaces with legal and corporate executives.

In the spring of 2015, Mike raised $63,000 in 70 days for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year campaign. As a part of this effort to raise awareness and money for LLS, Mike was “pushed” out of an airplane at 11,300 feet by a 1st grader who was fighting leukemia. Yes, he is scared of heights.
