  • Michael Charles Doland

    I have just read the response of Mr. Butzer to an intellectual property question. It was technically correct, but perhaps more importantly customized to the individual needs of the Avvo asker. These are exactly the qualities that a prospective Avvo asker would be looking for in legal representation. Welcome to Avvo!
