I highly endorse this lawyer's work. Mike and I worked together for many years at Rubin and Rudman before I left to join another firm. I therefore had the opportunity to observe his work quite closely. He is a highly competent, very bright and aggressive litigator. I have referred clients to him and would happily do so again.
