He asked for a $500.00 retainer but agreed that I would get a refund if the work did not cost that much. He did a fill in the blank lease extension that was about three pages. He sent me a bill for almost $1,000.00. I left five messages and two emails to discuss the charges with him ( over a period of 7-10 days) before he returned my phone call, He finally phoned and left a message that he would adjust the bill to $500.00. I have never paid more than $500.00 for similar work.
Michael Cross is a proven trusted advisor. His experience ranges from community leadership and current legal topics to a balanced perspective blending corporate and tax knowledge with admirable character. Michael is the consummate professional: the rare blend of excellent legal skills, a high degree of business acumen, and a keen ability to execute. He has a great combination of expertise gained through his experiences as a partner of Briskin Cross & Sanford as well as his and superb involvement in Atlanta's communities as a speaker, teacher and councilman. I have relied on Michael Cross for over a decade with my entrepreneurial and real estate agreements and you should feel confident doing the same.
Michael has represented my firm for seven years and I highly recommend him. He and his firm have helped us with business formation, legal contracts, business agreements, trademarks, confidentialy agreements, operations agreements and recently litigation. One of the reasons I highly recommend Michael is that he has actively helped us make good business decisions. Whenever I have a potential legal situation I have learned to call Michael before I act. He always helps take the emotion out of the situation and provides guidance that usually saves my firm money. Over the seven years we have been a client of Michael's firm we have not had any legal issues brought against us. On of the reasons is Michaels legal council. I think this is pretty impressive considering my firm has over 3000 clients.
We have brought Michael into several client situations. He is a well qualified attorney, with special expertise in business matters and non-profit law. We have found Michael to be technically competent, experienced in business and non-profits, and excellent with clients.
In all matters related to business and non-profits, we go first to Michael.
While working on a case that is not straight forward Michael has been upfront, honest and "real" about how we should proceed. I really get the sense that Michael is in my corner. He also has tried to keep the expenses limited to what is necessary. That is most appreciated! I would highly recommend Michael.
