Michael Branum



After spending most of my adult life running into burning buildings or keeping people alive in the back of ambulances, I went to law school. I have lived and worked in North Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, Alaska, Nevada, and now I have settled into the beautiful red rock surroundings of southwest Utah – Utah’s “Dixie.”

With over fifteen years of nursing experience on top of my career in emergency medicine, I have the background to understand the medical aspects of personal injury cases and to assist veterans in making compelling cases for the grant of benefits they deserve.

I am licensed in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. I practice in Mohave County in Arizona, Clark County (primarily Mesquite Justice and Municipal Courts) in Nevada, and the courts of southern Utah. I focus primarily on criminal and family law cases and assisting disabled veterans with their battle for benefits with the VA. I will consult on other civil matters and provide referrals if I do not believe I am the right attorney for your case.

If you are having a “legal emergency,” give me a call. I will assist you in getting back to normal.
