Mike is a local San Luis Obispian who graduated from San Luis Obispo High School. After high school he left San Luis Obispo for the “big city” of Southern California to pursue his education and legal carrier.
Mike spent most of his career as a partner at two large well-respected Southern California construction law firms. In 2014 Mike decided to switch from the large construction law firm to the medium size construction law firm of Plumtree & Associates. This was to allow Mike to develop a more one on one relationship with his construction contractor clients– something that is difficult to achieve at a big law firm.
In 2015 Mike decided it was time to return to his routes in San Luis Obispo and take his big firm experience back to San Luis Obispo. Mike did this by opening Plumtree & Associates’ San Luis Obispo Office.
Mike has over 18 years of experience representing design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers with mechanics liens/stop notices, CSLB license defense and breach of construction contract cases.
