Michael Branch

Our Lawyers and Staff: Michael Branch

Michael Branch earned his undergraduate and law degrees at the University of California, Berkeley. During that time, he also earned a Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning. He began practicing law in 1990 with Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps, which merged with Mckenna Long & Aldridge and later Dentons. His practice is concentrated in business, construction and real estate litigation. He has significant experience in resolving legal matters by way of negotiating a settlement, arbitration or trial in the State of California Superior Courts and United States District Courts.

Clients comment often about his ability to identify and attack the case by focusing on key legal issues at critical times, rather than the shotgun blast approach. Michael collaborates with his partner to achieve proven results.
