It is my pleasure to endorse Mike Brown. Mike and I worked together in the past and continue to stay in touch regarding potential referrals and new legal issues arising in the areas of labor and employment law. In a few words I would describe Mike as intelligent, trustworthy, diligent, and proactive. I have a great deal of respect for Mike and would have absolutely no reservation referring friends and family to him for legal services.
