WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: This national trial lawyer, who goes by “Mike,” recently served as the president of the 60,000-member American Association for Justice, which has a goal of promoting a fair and effective justice system. Following his tenure, the national association was so inspired by his work and drive that they created the Mike Eidson Scholarship in his honor. On a local front, he is the chairman emeritus of the board of Miami City Ballet, where he has held a position since 1999. He has also served as chair-elect for the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and is involved with the Kristi House for abused children and the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
