About Michael Kuzminski

Michael's primary area of practice involves helping people establish new businesses. He enjoys spending time with small-business owners answering their questions and drafting the complex documents necessary to help shield them from liability and run their businesses more smoothly. He also provides ongoing representation to existing business owners regarding a variety of aspects of commercial law.

Michael also handles a variety of real estate matters. He drafts contracts for the purchase and sale of real estate and walks clients through all phases of the transaction. He helps developers through the development process, including writing declarations of covenants, conditions and restrictions for new subdivisions, forming homeowner associations, providing guidance at homeowner meetings, and working with relevant governmental authorities for approval of new subdivisions, condominiums and other projects. He also assists clients with drafting and enforcing commercial, residential and grazing leases.

Assisting ranchers and rural property owners dealing with the oil and gas industry comprises the last major area of Michael's practice. Oil and gas law is a very old area of the law that is quite complex and unfamiliar to most people. Helping clients through the negotiating process with oil and gas companies and drafting documents that include the best interests of the client are particularly important to Michael.

An outdoor enthusiast, Michael hikes, bikes, camps and skis; he also enjoys running and spending time on the water.
