Michael C. Gong
Michael’s family operated a grocery store in Madera from 1951 to 1990. He learned honesty and customer service from his father. “Treat your customers good and you will always have customers,” his father would tell him. Michael has carried that credo into his law practice.
Our firm has been helping individuals and families for over 20 years. Michael was born and raised in Madera. At the time, Madera was a small farming community where folks depended on their neighbors, friends and families for help. Now in today’s complex legal world we need strong advocates for the people.
Even as a student, Michael championed citizen’s rights. That’s why he chose to come back to his roots to practice law. Helping the average person and addressing their legal needs by fighting for their rights.
Mr. Gong has been active in his community sitting on the Board of Directors of the Central California Chinese Cultural Center and a former Officer and Board member of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association and Sam Yup Cemetery Foundation.
