  • Timothy Andrew Lesinski

    Mike is without question one of the top real estate and land use/zoning attorneys practicing in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. I worked with Mike on many matters, and he taught me much of what I know today in the areas of zoning and land use. He has an unparalleled knowledge of the law, exceptional advocacy skills, and an absolute commitment to his clients. I highly recommend him.
