Born in Subiaco, a suburb of Perth, he was a barrister and solicitor before entering politics, and was senior state prosecutor with the Director of Public Prosecutions for Western Australia. He had received a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Jurisprudence from the University of Western Australia. Michael was elected to the Parliament of Western Australia on September 6, 2008, as a Liberal Party Member of the Legislative Council representing the North Metropolitan Region. He took up his seat in State Parliament on May 22, 2009 and served as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Attorney-General and Minister for Corrective Services, the Hon Christian Porter MLA. Michael continued in this role when Mr Porter assumed the position of Treasurer in December 2010 in addition to his Attorney-General duties. He is the former Chairman of the Standing Committee on Legislation, former Deputy Chairman of Committees, former member of the Legislative Council’s Standing Committee on Uniform Legislation & Statutes Review and former member of the Standing Committee on Procedures and Privileges (until this committee was restructured in March 2012).

He was re-appointed to that post on 21 March 2013 (following the State’s General Election) and was also appointed Minister for Commerce.[1][2]
