    I strongly endorse this lawyer. I worked with Mike as an Assistant Public Defender. I had cases against Mike when he was in the Lake County State's Attorney's Office. We have been on opposite sides in the civil arena as well. No one works harder or is more prepared than Mike. He has a thorough knowledge of criminal and civil law. I consider Michael to be a valuable resource and often use him as sounding board to discuss cases and legal issues.

    Mike and I first worked together over 25 years ago in the same felony criminal courtroom in Lake County, Illinois. We are both now in private practice, handling a much wider array of cases. I know that Mike has successfully handled nursing home neglect cases. I would recommend him highly. He is a very conscientious and ethical attorney.
