"With a full-time focus on labor and employment and healthcare law, my main objective is to help my company clients stay out of trouble rather than be forced to crawl out of trouble."

Michael D. Seale practices in the Employment and Labor Law, and Health Law groups.

Michael represents the interests of employers regarding labor and employment issues in a broad spectrum of industries, including energy, health care, construction, banking, and many other areas of business and commerce.  As a young attorney, Michael was intrigued by the passing of "new" laws like ADA, FMLA , and the amended Title VII, and viewed  them as shaping the future of employment law.    In 1997, he became Board Certified in Labor and Employment by the Texas Board of Specialization and 25 years later continues to assist clients with their employment and labor matters. 

Routinely, Michael advises clients on state and federal laws and regulations affecting businesses, including employer/employee disputes and issues.  He has extensive experience with counseling clients on employment and legal compliance policies, procedures, and related best practices.   In 1995, Michael started representing nursing home owners with employment and health care related matters and now devotes a substantial part of his practice to assisting similar health industry organizations in every aspect of long-term care.

Just as Michael has spent his legal career practicing labor and employment, and health care law,  he has spent his entire life playing tennis.  Life is good when you hear the thump of a tennis ball or the music of a live Texas Americana band!
