He represents clients in various domestic relations cases, including Divorce, Separation, Paternity, as well as the establishment and modification of both Child Support and Child Custody. Mike is a member of the Kansas, Colorado and El Paso County Bar Associations, as well as the 10th Federal Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court bars.
Mike obtained his undergraduate degree in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside, and subsequently was recruited out of college by Washburn University School of Law, in Topeka, Kansas, resulting in receipt of his law degree in 1993. With his dual language skills in both English and Spanish, Mike has represented and assisted the non-English speaking populations in both Colorado and Kansas. Prior to joining Gasper, Mike spent part of his career as a prosecutor in the State of Kansas, after leaving the private practice, and has worked as contract attorney for various pre-trial discovery projects, and as a staff attorney for a child support enforcement agency. In addition, Mike spent 8 years as a case law summaries attorney at LexisNexis and behind the scenes as an e-discovery analyst and document reviewer, most notably in the areas of securities and investment fraud, and as part of the investigation team into federal lawsuit that sought redress from the alleged “robo-signing” practices of major U.S. lenders, wrongfully undertaken against homeowners in the fall of 2010.
In his free time, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and dogs and attending live baseball and football games, where he has amassed a collection of over 100 autographs, souvenirs and other memorabilia. Mike is also a fan of live music, and is an avid supporter of many Colorado Springs and Pueblo-area musicians.
