Michael recently argued a complex double jeopardy issue before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. He has been selected by the Utah Federal District Court to be a member of the Criminal Justice Act Panel. In addition, he also has been selected to serve as conflict trial counsel for the Salt Lake Defender's Association.
