Mike knows the system and he knows people. When I have a client or a friend who gets into a tight spot in a criminal matter, Mike is the guy I call for them first. Calm, cool and practical, he can identify the options and the pressure points to get things done. He is tenacious in court and a gentleman outside of it.
