Born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, Michael attended the University of South Carolina where he received his B.S. in Business Administration, double majoring in Finance and Insurance and Risk Management. While attending the University of South Carolina, Michael was elected student body president and served on the university’s Board of Trustees, and received the Dean’s Award for Undergraduate Achievement. Upon completing his Bachelor’s degree, Michael was a special assistant to South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, a position that allowed him to foster his love and understanding of the state and people of South Carolina.
Michael is a third-year student at the University of South Carolina School of Law. He is the president of the Student Bar Association, a student member of the John Belton O’Neall Inn of Court, and a member of the school’s nationally-ranked Mock Trial Bar. Additionally, Michael interned for Judge Dennis W. Shedd of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit during the summer of 2020.
Eager to begin his legal career, and use his education and experience to help people in need, Michael is excited at the many opportunities to do just that at the Samuels Reynolds Law Firm.
In his free time, Michael enjoys Gamecock athletics, playing golf, and pick-up basketball with friends, as well as being involved in his church in downtown Columbia.
Couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer! Highly recommend and would use him over any Lawyer in South Carolina. He gave me the best advice and took his time and explained my case and my options to me.
