  • Alexander Eli Mainetti

    I consider myself lucky for the opportunity to work closely on cases with an attorney as knowledgeable and experienced as Michael Kolb. His analysis of pleadings and ability to find answers to tough legal questions is truly unparallelled. He is systematic, strategic and dedicated to advocating for his clients.
