Founder, Owner, and Lead Attorney
Michael J Anderson
Call him Michael, Mike, Range, or come up with a nickname of your own. Formalities aren’t as important to Mike as are good-natured relationships based on mutual respect and open communication. While his education and experience are topline, Mike’s prefers to practice law right there on the frontline with clients – with understanding, honesty, and straight talk.
After earning his undergraduate degrees in History and Political Science from Northwestern University, and his Law Degree from University of Wisconsin – Madison, Mike built his career as a successful litigator at well-established firms in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During this time, he developed razor-sharp expertise in multiple practice areas, until starting his own firm in 2012 to focus on legal matters he found most meaningful.
Through MJA LAW, Mike’s mission is to provide a client-centered, cost-effective approach to conflict resolution, tailored to the real person behind the “client.” The business of life isn’t always easy, but with Mike on your side, you can rest easy knowing you have an exceptional advocate working for your success.
