I hired Attorney Powers for a post judgement modification hearing. I WILL hire him again. He's smart, well informed, and gets the job done!! Michael Powers was referred to me and I'm so happy that we were able to work together. Hire this attorney with confidence that he'll do right by you and your family. He even sent a check back for a portion of the unused retainer!!
Over a period of about ten months, attorney Michael Richard Powers expertly staved off a potentially contentious lawsuit that had been threatened against selected officers and directors of a non-profit professional association (including me) involving a vexatious claim of libel and slander. His preparation included extensive research of the law, a thorough review of voluminous minutes; and he held numerous conferences with opposing counsel. He successfuly persuaded the potential litigant that the claim was without merit and was only intended to harass and intimidate his clients. The case, although lacking merit, posed significant personal liability for myself and other potential codefendants as the professional association's D & O insurance carrier had denied coverage.
He was very good at answering my questions, and being very up front about my position.
After a very long and thorough search on our behalf Michael was finally able to get the Banks and Title Search Companies involved to process and record that our Mortgage had indeed been paid off and that it was not an open item as shown by Public Record.
I have sought counsel from Mr. Powers on several occasions and have found him to be extremely competent and knowledgable. His fees are reasonable and I received a great result each and every time. He is also really friendly and personable, which makes the overall experience quite pleasant. Overall, I certainly recommend attorney Powers and will definitely use him again.
Michael is a great divorce and business attorney. I have used Michael for business and for my family issues. Though Michael is a great great business attorney, having somebody like Michael in your corner while you are going though a divorce is a blessing. He helped me be patient and let things play out which turned out to be a big advantage in our case. If your unsure of who to use, like I was speak to Michael and I am sure you will have no doubts.
