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 addition, Mike works with private equity investors and portfolio companies to help them understand the implications of state-level policy decisions and market trends for their investment and business decisions.

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.
