A consummate student, he has four college degrees, including a Doctorate in Jurisprudence, and well over ten thousand hours of training and study in mindfulness, including an authorization to teach Ashtanga from Manju Jois himself. As a Bar-licensed Attorney, Guardian ad Litem, and the Founder of LOTUSLEGAL, he has worked with the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office, the Utah Guardian ad Litem's Office, the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, the ACLU, the Utah Association of Collaborative Professionals, and numerous other governmental and nonprofit organizations to protect and serve the underprivileged and marginalized.

In his role as a Guardian ad Litem, Micah represents abused and neglected children in high-conflict divorce cases. He is also AFCC Informed, an active member of the Utah Association of Collaborative Professionals, and appears in court several times a week on behalf of his many clients concerning all manner of family law matters. Although Micah enjoys the courtroom, he knows that it is not always the best way to resolve disputes, especially when children are involved. Trial can be costly, both financially and emotionally, so Micah crafts his approach to most cases as that of a “peaceful warrior” by endeavoring to resolve most matters via negotiation or mediation (and with a very high rate of success).

As the creator of Scholé Yoga, Micah has also shared the power of mindfulness with tens of thousands across the world and personally certified over five hundred teachers in his unique system of education and empowerment. In his spare time, he enjoys anything that gets him outside and connected to others, especially surfing, sailing, and other outdoor adventures.
