After more than thirty years building a solid foundation in the litigation of real estate, title insurance, employment and general business disputes, Michael Spink is now developing a dynamic practice in the mediation of all facets of business, real estate, and civil litigation law.

Michael has always approached litigation as an exercise in problem-solving, and the progression of his role to participation as a neutral voice in dispute resolution is a logical, and exciting, evolution of that practice. This unique perspective, grounded in practical application, gives Michael valuable insight into the nuances of mediation and dispute resolution.

Michael obtained comprehensive mediation training at the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, the premiere mediation training group center at Pepperdine University School of Law.
