Experienced in all aspects of case handling, Micaela P. Banach has amassed an impressive track record over the course of her career – skillfully representing both plaintiffs and defendants in practice areas that include matters of real estate, employment, products liability, professional liability and business disputes, such as contract issues and fraud. Results driven, she has secured successful results for numerous clients – most notably obtaining a multi-million dollar judgment in a fraud and securities action.

Prior to becoming one of the founding partners of Noonan Lance Boyer & Banach, she was a partner at the highly regarded law firm of Kirby Noonan Lance & Hoge. Her achievements include several successful jury and bench trials; a defense arbitration award in favor of a client sued for more than $12 million; successfully writing and arguing an appeal before the 4th District Court of Appeals; and many negotiated settlements.

For seven years, Banach served on the board of directors for the San Diego County Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the San Diego County Bar Association. She served as president in 2017, leading the nonprofit as it supported underprivileged communities in the region by providing them with access to legal services.

Banach also enjoys traveling, sports and spending time at the beach with her husband and two sons.
