I would not recommend Micah Salb. He didn't return my phone calls, and I was constantly passed on to one of his junior associates who also wouldn't return my phone calls. Drafts of paperwork was scheduled to be sent to me by certain dates but it took multiple weeks to even receive an electronic copy. He only cares about the money and not really about the client.
I hired Micah Salb to deal with a family estate matter. After nine months with no resolution, I needed to seek other council.
It’s hard for him to listen to the client’s requests. He is arrogant and confrontational, while blaming the client for not cooperating with him.
He had to be pushed and prodded concerning updates on my case. Days and weeks would be go by without any emails from him.
His billing practices are extremely inefficient. My credit card company had to resolve a disputed bill.
we used Micah to readopt our child (adopted abroad) to get his American citizenship. As we are diplomats living overseas this was a complicated process but he knew the ropes and guided us effectively through the process. Despite a few delays not in his control, the adoption went smoothly without a hitch. Highly recommend.
Micah Salb and Mary Kuntz worked patiently with me to help get money due me for a web development contract. They were persistent and explored different possible strategies, and finally got my former employer to pay some of what was owed to me and sign a promissory note for the rest. My former employer is a weasel (I think the legal term is "bad actor"), having repeatedly failed to pay several other employees as well, and coming up with endless excuses. I do not believe I would have seen any payment had I not contracted the services of Lippman Semsker & Salb.
We have used Micah Salb as a family lawyer for estate planning (wills, guardianship, health directives) and would highly recommend him. Micah was knowledgable and responsive, and provided us with realistic and helpful advice in navigating the issues related this area. We appreciate his wit and directness, and look forward to using Micah and his firm for any related issues in the future.
Micah provided us with excellent advice in developing our wills, trust, and custodial arrangements. Where he really shines is in patiently guiding clients through the tricky issues and sometimes difficult decision-making process involved in estate planning. He was sensitive to a few unique aspects of our situation, and proposed some very helpful ideas for how to accomplish our goals.
He is knowledgeable and put us at ease during the course of discussing serious matters regarding our will, durable powers of attorney, and trust. However, his attention to details and organization can be lacking as it took us over a year to complete the creation and finalization of our documents. We received a good product in the end, but it took a lot of time and vigilance to ensure our requirements were met. Unfortunately, we can't recommend him.
Excellent Lawyer. Very knowledgeable of his field. Very easy to work with.
Shannon represented me before the District Court in the District of Columbia as well as the city goverment to have my birth record correctly amended to reflect a change of gender. I believe him competent to handle all issues involving transgender rights.
Micah was very responsive and new exactly the type of work we needed done to protect our interests. He was very knowledgeable and helped us put together a Will and did it in record time. I would highly recommend Micah and his Firm to support your needs for a lawyer.
