William C. Michelson
Office: (612) 821-4817
William C. Michelson practices in several areas of the law including consumer and business law. He represents consumers who have trouble paying their bills, typically their medical and credit card debts. He defends state court lawsuits for consumers and brings Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) claims on their behalf in Federal Court against harassing third-party debt collectors. He also negotiates consumer and business debts downward for people and businesses that can no longer afford to make their monthly payments. Mr. Michelson believes consumers are not as well represented as they should be, and find it hard to fight against creditors and their attorneys. Mr. Michelson enjoys practicing law in this area because he makes a real difference in his clients’ lives.
Mr. Michelson has twenty-five years of experience representing clients. He has drafted hundreds of wills and other estate planning instruments for his clients. He has helped clients start dozens of corporations, and he has counseled them as their businesses grow and their legal matters become more complex. He has filed and prosecuted scores of mechanic’s lien actions and bond claims for his building-industry clients. He has proudly represented many of his business clients from the beginning of his legal career.
While Mr. Michelson is no longer accepting new clients, he continues to work on current client cases to ensure the best possible outcomes, while also providing legal advice to the other attorneys of the firm.
In his free time, Mr. Michelson is a recreational pilot and loves to spend time flying. He is also the grandfather of three and plays an active role in his grandchildren’s lives.
