  • Sam Wayne

    Mike is a powerhouse trial lawyer, among the best in town. His knowledge of and experience in the court system make him successful when dealing with very complex, fact-intensive claims, over-aggressive opposing counsel, tight deadlines, and anything else your company might face in high-stakes litigation. Mike is an expert at sizing up the value of a legal claim, determining the best or most cost-effective course of action, carrying out that course of action and adapting to changed circumstances along the way. Working for Mike Erhard has thus far been an incredible learning experience, and I endorse him strongly and without reservation.
