About Michael Boreale
Michael founded Boreale Law, PLC in 2012 with the aim to provide unique legal services tailored to the needs of small businesses. His goal is to use his legal experience to grow and develop businesses, particularly small businesses, which are the lifeblood of our local economy.
Prior to starting Boreale Law, Michael was in-house counsel with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), where he provided in-depth advice to agency management on a wide range of issues, including contracts, employment, and property issues. Before that, he was employed in private practice in Tucson, where he handled landlord-tenant matters, contracts, business formations, and estate planning.
Michael has been licensed to practice law in Arizona since 2005, and since then he has been fortunate to gain experience in various areas, such as labor and employment law, tort liability, asset protection, estate planning, real estate, immigration, and contracts.
Michael is a “nearly native” Arizonan, moving to Arizona at a young age. Growing up near Nogales, Arizona has given him tremendous insight into navigating the Southern Arizona legal landscape. Returning to Tucson for law school provided him with a great appreciation for the people and potential of our community.
Michael and his wife are the proud parents of two very active children. Michael routinely exhibits stunning mediocrity at golf, bowling, tennis, softball, and any other athletic endeavor he tries his hand at. Though these days, most of his exercise comes from chasing his son and daughter around.
