Michael David Milstein is a lifelong Marylander; he grew up in Olney, Maryland and also lived in College Park and Baltimore City before settling down in Howard County with his wife and two daughters in the community of Maple Lawn.

Michael earned his B.A. in Economics from the University of Maryland in 2006. While at the University of Maryland, he also earned a citation from the CIVICUS program, was a member of the Discovery Research Program and participated in intramural basketball and football.

Michael graduated from The University of Baltimore School of Law in 2009. He was a member of the Mock Trial, Moot Court, and Negotiation Teams and interned for several State and Federal agencies, including the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Michael was also fortunate enough to intern for two federal judges: Chief Bankruptcy Judge Duncan W. Keir and Federal District Judge (now 4th Circuit Judge) Andre M. Davis.

After graduating from law school, Michael worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Timothy J. McCrone, Circuit Court Judge for Howard County, Maryland. During his clerkship, Michael reviewed and observed all motions and trials before Judge McCrone. The vast majority of cases were domestic or criminal in nature; however, guardianship, breach of contract, personal injury, and medical malpractice matters were regularly before the Court.

Like the other attorneys at SIEGELLAW, Michael is trained a litigator, and, while his work is heavily based in family law, he handles a wide range of litigation matters from personal injury to breach of contract to criminal. Michael, however, has dedicated a portion of his practice on two niche areas: guardianship litigation and collaborative divorce cases.

Michael represents petitioners in guardianship cases throughout the entire state of Maryland. Guardianship cases can be filed to obtain a guardianship over a person or person’s property and may be filed to obtain a guardianship over a minor child or an alleged disabled. During his clerkship, Michael handled every single guardianship case filed in Howard County, thus giving him a distinctive insight into all types of guardianship disputes and the individual perspectives of the potential guardian, ward, and family members. As a result of his unique experience handling guardianship cases, Michael has been appointed by the Court in many cases to represent the alleged disabled with his/her case.

While Michael and the firm primarily handle traditional litigation divorce cases, Michael is the only attorney at the firm who offers divorcing couples the opportunity to explore another avenue besides litigation; through the Collaborative Law Process. This process provides couples with an alternative to the traditional methods of divorce, allowing them to make individual decisions which address the particular present and future needs of their family together and each spouse individually.

Michael greatest joy is spending time with his family; his wonderful wife Tami and his two beautiful daughters Leah Michelle and Sadie Olivia. He is also a dedicated Orioles, Redskins, Wizards and Terps fan, a coach for the Mock Trial Team at River Hill High School, is in the process of learning Spanish and goes to Ocean City every chance he gets.

Michael is a member of the Howard County Bar Association, the Maryland Association for Justice and the Maryland State Bar Association.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
