  • Kenneth L. Shigley

    Michael Wilensky is a highly intelligent and resourceful trial attorney who is intrepid in regularly taking cases to trial. That is remarkable in that so few lawyers in his generation are actually getting that quantity and quality of jury trial experience. As a past president of the State Bar of Georgia, I strongly recommend him to any prospective clients.
