I hail from Philadelphia, attended The Haverford School, Valley Forge Middle School, and Conestoga High School. During those early years, I participated in scholastic and private sports (baseball and basketball, mostly) and I won a model stock market simulation (for the region, with partial time as the first-place team nationally) while in middle school. I played varsity baseball at Conestoga High School, and wrote articles about our games for the local paper. I then attended Elon College in North Carolina, and was eventually graduated from American University in Washington D.C. with a degree in Political Science. After college, I attended Widener University Law School.
During my time in law school I interned with:
The Honorable Edward G. Rendell as a political intern
The in-house counsel at Primavera Systems in Bala Cynwyd
The Chester County District Attorney’s Office as a certified legal intern
Due to a strong interest in technology, after law school and my internships concluded, I moved to Santa Cruz, CA, and sold network testing software to many of the companies that now provide the essential services to our modern world. I was also able to get involved with negotiating sales contracts, and to see the early appearance of “cyberlaw” in our everyday lives.
I returned to Pennsylvania and founded the Law Offices of Michael E. Houghton Esq. P.C. in 2009, after being admitted to practice in Pennsylvania in 2008. My practice provides legal services in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties in the areas of law described in more detail within this site.
I have defended a wide variety of clients involving matters such as traffic offenses, DUI/DWI, PWID & possession offenses, and violations of probation/parole (“VOP”), among others. I have also represented parties to family law litigation, such as custody and support matters, in jurisdictions throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. Moreover, I have experience in various forms of appeals, such as appeals from a Magisterial District Justice’s (“District Court”) decision in a civil or summary matter (traffic) to the appropriate court of common pleas; and, from the court of common pleas to the Pennsylvania Superior Court and sometimes on to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
Please reach out to me today if you think that I can help you or a loved one with a legal matter.
