Michael A. Gale-Butto

Call me any time, and I'll pick up - it's what I'm here for.

My Approach

Client service, and working directly with businesses to further their goals, is the reason I became a lawyer. As an attorney and advocate, I am committed to developing real, meaningful relationships with my clients. I have a deep passion for learning the details of my clients’ businesses and advising them on a course of action that puts their interests first throughout the challenging and arduous process of litigation.

As a former prosecutor, I know what it means to take the fight into the courthouse. Before joining private practice, I served for three years as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of Minneapolis, where I was able to spend much of my time as an advocate in the courtroom. Using the perspective I gained after working on more than 200 trials, contested hearings, and arbitrations, I provide my clients with the practical advice and answers they need both in and out of the courtroom.

Outside of work, I can be found cooking (especially pasta), running around the lakes, and playing soccer.
