Micah William Scholes, Esq.

A consummate student, he is a certified tai chi master with four college degrees including a doctorate in jurisprudence and well over ten thousand hours of training and study in the yogic arts, including an authorization to teach Ashtanga from Manju Jois himself. As a bar-licensed attorney, a Guardian Ad Litem, and the founder of LOTUSLEGAL, he is proud to serve on the board for the Utah Association of Family Conciliatory Courts, and to have worked with the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office, the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, and numerous other governmental and nonprofit organizations that protect and serve the underprivileged and marginalized.

While in law school, Micah focused his studies on trial advocacy and any and all civil, criminal, and victim’s rights on the job experiences that got him into court as early as possible during his education. As a result, he was able to handle and win numerous jury and bench trials prior to even graduating law school!

His practice today is exclusively focused on family law. Micah is AFCC informed and appears in court several times a week on behalf of his clients on all types of family law matters. While he 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 initially focuses his approach in 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 globe and certified over five hundred teachers in his unique system of education and empowerment. In his spare time, Micah enjoys anything that gets him outside and connected to nature, especially surfing, sailing, and other outdoor adventures.
