Hi, my name is Michael Thomas Edwards, and I have been practicing law right here in northern lower Michigan for over 20 years. In fact, I have spent most of my life living and working here in northern lower Michigan. I am a 1986 graduate from Cheboygan Area High School. In 1991, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. In 1996 I earned my law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School where I graduated with honors (Cum Laude).
After acquiring my law license in 1996, I returned to Cheboygan where I concentrated my practice in real estate litigation and municipal representation. In November 1997, I moved to Gaylord where I continued my real estate and municipal practice and started a family law practice. In 2015, I opened and maintain a second office (part time) in Roscommon.
During my career that expands over two decades, I have represented hundreds of northern Michigan residents. These people include hard working men and women, active military men and women, disabled veterans, local attorneys, police officers, county officials, local business owners and non-profit companies. I also represent the interests of numerous northern Michigan municipalities.
