About Brian Russell Michaels

Brian Michaels is the only attorney in Southern California to have worked as a front line Prosecutor, Police Litigator and full time private Criminal Defense Attorney. Attorney Michaels was hired directly out of law school, where he graduated with academic honors, to work for the Los Angeles City Attorney in the mid 1990s. As a young Prosecutor Michaels tried nearly 100 cases to verdict and settled nearly 1000 more cases. Michaels success as a trial attorney allowed him to work as a trial advocate trainer, in which he was assigned to teach trial skills to lawyers from large corporate firms in trial advocacy.
