    • I recommend Michael Baird.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Wills / Living Wills matter.

    We were mired in a very complicated 4 year estate lawsuit, with multiple attorneys representing us, when we hired Mr. Baird. He resolved all of the issues and closed the case in in a matter of months.
    I will be forever grateful to Mr. Baird. He was able to digest over four years of lawsuits and counterlawsuits in numerous court jurisdictions, and figure out exactly what needed to be done, explain them to me, and then quickly end the legal fiasco. And the resolution was much more favorable to me then I thought possible. If it were not for his legal acumen I am sure the case would still be going on.

    • I recommend Michael Baird.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Personal Injury matter.

    Mike represented me in a very complex personal injury matter against formidable adversaries. His counsel was always spot on. Mike is exceptionally bright and strategic. There were so many challenges that we survived only because of his expertise and brilliance. His guidance along the way helped manage my expectations as well as my sanity. He has a realistic and grounding perspective which made this otherwise difficult journey manageable. I worked in the legal profession for almost 20 years before I worked with Mike. His advocacy skills are second to none! He is the best in class and I remain grateful he took my case.
