    Michael is an excellent lawyer. I have been opposing counsel against Michael in several teacher licensing cases, and I know him to be a tireless, diligent, and forceful advocate for his clients. He goes to great lengths to understand the intricate facts and nuances of his cases. This makes him a force to be reckoned with -- in settlement negotiations or in court.
