  • Robert W Liles

    Over the years, while working at the Department of Justice and in private practice, I have had an opportunity to work with some of the best lawyers in the country. WIthout a doubt, Bill Michael is among the finest litigators I have ever known. Some attorneys are skilled at litigation but are not as quick when it comes to complex analysis or case assessment. Others are great at researching and analyzing cases but have only marginal courtroom skills. Bill stands apart from the crowd. He is equally good at analyzing a case, identifying options for proceeding and then trying the case before a judge or jury. Since entering private practice, Bill has built an outstanding national reputation, well-deserved in every respect. I strongly recommend Bill Michael.
