    Michael's experience and litigation skills are unparalled in the area of DYFS / DCPP litigation. He brings a unique and extremely valuable perspective to this very difficult area of litigation. I would recommend him without any reservation.

  • Robert John Wittmann

    I was taking on a high level felony case that concerned rare, esoteric areas of criminal law. Much research was needed in order to prevail. I spent numerous hours at the library and reviewed many law books. Few of them were as useful as the scholarly, yet highly practical online legal essays of Mr. Ascher. Intrigued by his writings, I contacted him over email and he graciously responded by calling me on the telephone. For almost 20 minutes, he took time out of his busy schedule and spoke with me about the unique legal procedures I would be facing and the strategies I would need in order to prevail. His essays and advice would prove to be of great value. Indeed, they helped me get the case dismissed, with prejudice. Mr. Ascher is a gentleman, professional and credit to the bar. I wish more attorneys were like him.
