Michael Mirande was born in Mineola, N.Y. in 1953. After graduating from Duke University School of Law he clerked for the Honorable Gerald Bard Tjoflat, Chief Judge of the United States (then) 5th (now 11th) Circuit Court of Appeals. After practicing law in North Carolina, he taught two years at Duke University School of Law (Civil Procedure, Administrative Law, Professional Responsibility), and another year at the University of South Carolina School of Law (Civil Procedure and Federal Courts). In 1986 he began to practice law with Bogle & Gates in Seattle, where he stayed until 1999 and where he became Co-Chair of the Appellate Practice Group. He practiced with Miller Bateman LLP in Seattle until 2008, and he currently has his own law office. His practice has focused on Indian Law for over 25 years. Michael has been an adjunct professor at Seattle University School of Law since 2008.
