I endorse this lawyer.I have known Mike for about 45 years. he was always smart as a whip so I'm not surprised he has achieved the stature in the law that he has. I know he is constantly recruited for advice and teaches at many seminars. If one wants to know about insurance law Mike is the person to go to. As nice as he is, he'll fight you if he has to, and watch out.
