SEATTLE, Washington, April 20, 2015 – Oles Morrison Rinker & Baker, LLP, one of the West Coast’s most respected law firms, is pleased to announce that Alaska's former Attorney General Michael Geraghty has joined the firm.
Based in the firm’s Anchorage office, Mike’s practice focuses on areas and industries reflecting Alaska's growth and history, including construction and natural resources. During his thirty-six year career he has been involved in numerous complex cases, and has tried cases to verdict throughout Alaska, including Kenai, Barrow, Dillingham, Fairbanks and Anchorage. He has appeared before the Alaska Supreme Court in matters ranging from sovereign immunity, insurance bad faith, and administrative law, to attorney-client privilege, OSHA regulations, contract claims, shareholder disputes, products liability, and premises-landowner liability.
Mike served as Alaska’s Attorney General from 2012 to 2014 where he was responsible for the oversight of nearly 300 attorneys in the civil and criminal divisions. Prior to his appointment, Mike was a partner in the Anchorage law firm DeLisio Moran Geraghty & Zobel, PC, with a practice devoted exclusively to litigation and appeals before state and federal courts.
In 2005, Mike was appointed by the governor to serve Alaska as a Uniform Law Commissioner to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. In 2007, he received the Alaska Bar Association Board of Governors Professionalism Award and in 2011 he was elected to the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation.
Mike earned his law degree cum laude from the University of Santa Clara. He received his undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of Hawaii. Born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, Mike now resides in Anchorage with his wife Mishel and their five kids. He and his wife have been active in Special Olympics for many years.
