Michael Savage joined Luminosity Law (formerly Baugher Law Firm) in 2008. Starting out at the front desk, he eventually worked his way up, excelling in all aspects of both paralegal and firm operations. Enjoying his work and helping clients in need, he decided to further his legal education and on-the-job experience by entering Washington State’s APR 6 Law Clerk program. While studying under Patricia Baugher as both his tutor and mentor (and mom), he gained a wellspring of valuable real-life, hands-on experience not available in law school. After soundly passing the bar exam on his first attempt, he was admitted to the practice of law in 2022.
Having well over fourteen (14) years of family law experience prior to becoming an attorney, Michael understands just how difficult and challenging divorce and custody issues can be. Using his major in psychology from the University of Washington, he takes both a holistic and quasi-therapeutic approach for his clients. Over 90% of family law cases end in a settlement between the parties. In order to achieve his client’s goals, Michael will take every opportunity to try to mend broken bridges with the other party to find amicable solutions that are in the best interests of the child(ren) and all parties involved. Michael believes the best outcomes are when the parties can find a way to work cooperatively, especially when children are involved. However, he does not hesitate to take appropriate court action if it is or becomes clear that any attempts to negotiate will be unsuccessful.
Michael will assist you with your family law issues with compassion and expertise well beyond what is reflected by his bar number and is ready to embark with you on your journey to resolve your family law issues.
