    I endorse this lawyer's work. I worked with Michael for many years in the fields of bankrupty and representing secured lenders and found him to be an excellent lawyer, a good teacher and mentor and a good friend. He combined excellent legal skills with a practical approach based on an understanding of his clients' respective businesses in general and the specifics of each transaction in particular.
