  • Karim K Arzadi

    Mr. Warshaw is an insightful contributor to Avvo and has earned the respect of his peers. Has several appellate victories to his credit, including one published just this week allowing an injured person to proceed against a public entity. This indicates that, in the right case, he will make that extra effort for those in need of help and knows what he's doing. I also know from his answers that he has the experience to realize that not every case is the "right case" to be appealed for the sake of appealing as he tries to convey that to uninitiated questioners. Without hesitation, I endorse Michael Warshaw.
