Michael M. Machado joined Valdez & Trevino as a Senior Attorney after a successful 27 year career as the head of a boutique law firm that distinguished itself through its ability to quickly and accurately evaluate and litigate the important issues in matters ranging from administrative law (lawyer and nursing disciplinary/licensing issues), high net-worth divorce and child custody disputes, personal injury and wrongful death cases, and criminal law - including complex federal white collar and conspiracy cases, and capital murder trial work. For three years prior to that, he worked as in-house counsel for Tesoro Development Co., a consortium of business men in San Antonio whose interests included commercial real estate development (Vista Verde Plaza and the Main Plaza Building), business development, oversight, and management (Handy-Andy Supermarkets, West Coast Produce Co., and Royal Car Washes) and several oil and gas joint ventures.

Based in San Antonio and licensed by the State Bar of Texas, as well as the United States District Courts in the Western and Southern Districts of Texas, Mr. Machado has tried, and won, numerous cases throughout his career in various locales ranging from Amarillo to Brownsville, and El Paso to Texarkana. Unfazed by the prospect of trying cases in unfamiliar (and often unfriendly) venues, he has also successfully negotiated and litigated acquittals and other favorable results for his clients in places as diverse as South Bend, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio, and New Orleans, Louisiana on a pro hac vice basis.

Mr. Machado has been a guest lecturer on several occasions at both the San Antonio Police Academy and the San Antonio College Law Enforcement Training Academy on the subject of withstanding cross-examination, and has been a guest speaker at several high schools and grade schools in the San Antonio area on the topic of the American justice system.

At Valdez & Trevino, Mike will focus his energies on defending catastrophic tort, personal injury, and professional malpractice cases.
