Michael was born in South Dakota and lived there through high school. He then came to Texas as quickly as he could to attend Southern Methodist University, where he earned a degree in Economics and Philosophy in 1997. After completing his undergraduate work, Michael went to work as a financial analyst, trying to convince himself that he did not want to be a lawyer. He was successful as a financial analyst, but the desire to practice law remained, and he began law school at The University of Texas in 1998.
Michael graduated from The University of Texas Law School in 2001. Immediately following law school, Michael landed a highly coveted job as a briefing attorney to U.S. Federal Judge James R. Nowlin, who was then the Chief Judge for the Western District of Texas.
Michael then spent 4 1/2 years as an attorney with the law firm McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, LLP, one of the most highly respected firms in Texas. While at McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, Lovins’ litigation career started as the associate representing a coal mining company in a complex, multi-venue dispute with a major Texas energy company. Lovins continued working in high value, complex commercial disputes representing financial institutions, major retailers, and energy companies, as well as small businesses.
In March 2007, Michael decided to focus his practice primarily on assisting individuals and small businesses who have been harmed by the irresponsibility, carelessness, indifference, or maliciousness of others. This decision precipitated the founding of The Law Offices of Michael E. Lovins. In August of 2010, Michael made the decision to partner with Jeremy Wilson and Pete Trosclair to further his efforts to help individuals and small businesses with their litigation needs.
Michael lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife of eleven years and their two daughters and a son.
