Greg Michalak Attorney at Law

Greg Michalak Los Angeles Attorney

I am an attor­ney prac­tic­ing in Los Ange­les and sur­round­ings areas. I meet with clients in Los Ange­les, San Bernardino and Orange Coun­ties. I grad­u­ated from Chicago-Kent Col­lege of Law. I attended DePaul Uni­ver­sity in Chicago for under­grad­u­ate stud­ies. I am licensed to practice law in Cal­i­for­nia and New Jersey.

I did not go to law school straight out of col­lege. In fact, I did not con­sider becom­ing an attor­ney until I was about 28. Before start­ing my legal career I installed security/surveillance cam­eras, main­tained den­tal equip­ment for den­tists, and worked as a Real Estate Bro­ker.

I was a Land­lord and a Ten­ant. I worked for pro­pri­etary firm as a secu­ri­ties trader. I held secu­ri­ties licenses series 7 and 63. I still trade stocks and options for my own account. I became inter­ested in legal career when I was a real estate bro­ker. That is when I befriended attor­neys and found their work inter­est­ing. I took Law School Admis­sion Test and I was accepted to sev­eral law schools.

 

Due to my work I wanted to stay in Chicago, so I concentrated on schools in “Windy City.” I chose Chicago-Kent Col­lege of Law due to its rep­u­ta­tion and prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence offered to students. Chicago-Kent was founded in 1888 and grad­u­ated many excel­lent lawyers over the span of over 120 years.

Chicago-Kent has always been ranked as one of the best schools for Trial Advo­cacy in United States. In 2012 it was ranked 3rd in USA for Trial Advo­cacy program. Many courses where thought by Lawyers who worked in law offices located in our school.

They offered aca­d­e­mic as well as prac­ti­cal instructions. It gave me an opportunity to work for a law firm while attending school; after all it was in the same building.

I enjoy spending my spare time outdoors, specifically hiking and camping. I like mar­tial arts; I prac­ticed Karate and Muay Thai.
