Mike Lawsure, CPA, MST


Mike began his career in private accounting where he managed accounting and finances for a manufacturer, a regional restaurant chain, and a college. In private accounting he learned the value of listening to business owners to truly understand their needs and goals in order to offer personalized solutions. In 1998 he took his career in a new direction with the goal to become a CPA. He then began working for a large local accounting firm in the tax section where he was fortunate to be exposed to a broad array of challenging experiences. After moving on to a couple other accounting firms he decided to set out on his own in 2011. In 2015, he joined The Swanson Group LLC, where he can work closer with clients of any size or complexity to meet their individual, unique needs.

Mike graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration—Accounting in 1982. In 2002, he received the Certified Public Accountant designation. And, in 2004, Mike earned a Master of Science in Taxation from Thomas College.

When not working, Mike loves to be outside to walk, hike, mountain bike, and camp with family. He lives in Portland with his wife, Denise, and their two sons.
