    Mike is the consumate counselor. I first got to know Mike when we were representing separate parties on the same side of a dispute. I have since gone on to work with Mike together on other matters. As a starting point, his integrity and personal and professional ethics are beyond reproach. And while Mike is a shrewd,tough advocate, what sets him apart in my eyes is the guidance he gives as an astute and sensitive advisor. Mike is what every lawyer should aspire to be, and the lawyer that every client should want on his or her side.
