Michael Santo began practicing law in his home state of Michigan in 1992 after receiving his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and his law degree from the University of Detroit. After graduating from law school, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of moving to Colorado in 1994. Since then, Michael focuses his practice on defending companies in employment litigation, including race, sex, age, national origin, religious, and disability discrimination lawsuits; wrongful discharge; and wage and hour matters. In addition, he regularly represents employers in prosecuting and defending claims of trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, and employee raiding.
Counseling companies on day-to-day employment issues is also an important part of Michael’s practice. This includes advising employers on hiring, discipline, and termination decisions; on leave and disability issues; and on preparing and revising employee handbooks. By helping employers develop sound personnel policies, Michael assists many Colorado companies, large and small, in minimizing the risk of employment-related litigation.
In 2014, the board of trustees of the Colorado Bar Foundation invited Michael to become a fellow of the foundation, an honor restricted to no more than five percent of lawyers in Colorado.
