He is a unique lawyer—a California consumer financial protection attorney—who helps people regain control of their financial lives by getting the upper hand on creditors, debt collectors, and credit reporting agencies. He is also a former senior executive of a debt-buying company, a debt-collection agency, and a major regional high-volume debt-collection law firm. He now brings his experience and skill to exclusively help consumers, and he has truly created an excellent law firm.

Trained as a trial attorney in the U.S. Marine Corps, Mike Cardoza has tried countless cases in federal and state courtrooms. As a veteran of the war in Iraq, and following additional assignments overseas and in the courtroom, he has now retired from the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves as a colonel and continues on in his legal career.
