  • Michael E. Piston

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Kevin is extraordinarily thorough and persistent. Ask him to do anything and he immediately jumps on it and follows through with dedication and tenacity. He is my go-to guy in Chicago and the only attorney I would refer work to there. Incidentally, contrary to the impression offered by his photograph, he normally DOES shave.
