"When I think of Micah, I think of integrity and honor. He is an excellent, intelligent, thoughtful attorney. But as great as he is as an attorney, he is an even better person. His clients can trust him."
Service to others is Micah’s passion, and the defining theme of his professional experience. Micah was a care-free student and (mediocre) surfer, attending California State University Long Beach when he answered the call to become a Marine Corps officer. Commissioned immediately after completing his degree in Business Management and Operations Management in 2003, Micah deployed twice in support of combat operations in Iraq. He commanded a rifle platoon in Hit, Iraq during 2004-2005, and an Assault Amphibian Vehicle platoon in Fallujah in 2006.
During these deployments, Micah earned the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with “Combat V” for valor, the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with “Combat V” for valor, and the Combat Action Ribbon.
Micah attended law school at Arizona State University through the Marine Corps’ highly-competitive Funded Legal Education Program (FLEP). After earning his JD with pro bono distinction, Micah attended Naval Justice School (NJS) in Newport, RI. He graduated NJS with honors and as a trial-advocacy finalist.
As a Judge Advocate (JAG), Micah served as Defense Counsel and Officer in Charge of an installation’s Legal Assistance team. In 2013, pursuant to a new DoD initiative, Micah was selected to establish and lead one of the first Victims’ Legal Counsel Organization (VLCO) offices in the Corps, and to personally represent crime-victims in complex and delicate military justice cases.
After the Marine Corps, Micah went into private practice in Arizona before moving to Washington to serve as the West Coast Regional Director for Wounded Warrior Project’s Veterans Benefits Service.
In private practice, Micah enjoys serving families and small businesses in the North Kitsap community that he, his wife Danielle, and their three kids call home!
