Michael J. Mulshine

Some people relax by finding a quiet spot and meditating, not Michael. He finds relaxation by going down a black diamond ski run as fast as he can. An avid outdoorsman, Michael has never shied away from intensity and danger; instead, he welcomes the immense challenge they present him. He brings this same intense mindset to his law practice.
Prior to attending law school Michael became a member of the National Paralegal Honor Society; however, he was not satisfied. Michael graduated from the University Of Illinois with honors, and was privileged to work in the Risk Management Department of Horizon Hobby Inc., while completing his studies.
Following law school Michael returned to his hometown of Bethesda, Maryland, and joined WealthEngine, Inc., where he served as Corporate Counsel. Michael currently manages Rostam's East Coast headquarters and resides in Rockville, Maryland with his dog, Riggs.
Michael believes his experience as both a paralegal and attorney has given him a deeper understanding of the contemporary practice of law, and sees the problem of a new normal as Rostam's opportunity. This unique perspective feeds Rostam's hunger for innovation, focused on improving client outcomes while minimizing cost.
