Mike joined Hinds and Hinds in June of 2012, drawn to the firm’s reputation for conflict resolution in an area of practice that is often associated with severe emotional difficulties and sensitive issues. Mike’s desire to work in family law stemmed in large part from his years of working with children and adolescents who were often facing the challenges of divorce.

A Colorado native, Mike Hinds attended Eckerd College in Saint Petersburg, Florida where he majored in International Business and Modern Languages. Before attending Law School, Mike worked abroad in several countries including Croatia, Czech Republic, and Mexico as a language and geography teacher.

In addition to his Juris Doctor from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, Mike also earned his Masters in Business Administration from the Daniels College of Business. During his time in school he clerked for the Honorable Angela Arkin in the 18th Judicial District of Colorado.

Early in his career, Mike has been recognized by his peers and clients as a standout attorney in the field of family law.

“Going through a divorce is never easy, and there is a lot more to it than just filing paperwork. Mike helped me through every process and kept me informed of any changes. The office was very nice and the staff there are very friendly and helpful. I felt as though they care about me and how I was dealing with the whole process rather than just feeling like another client to Mike. I would recommend him to anyone that is going through a divorce.”
