    Michael has done our corporate filings and drafting documents to terminate a business partnership. Got the job done and eliminated our liability with the old business. He has also not done things that I could do myself just as easily. Every time we have a question, we go to Mike. We trust his recommendations and direction.

    • Michael handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I've worked with lawyers in 4 states on tax credit deals, and Michael is simply the best I've ever found. He cuts through the nonsense, and gets it done! His knowledge of tax issues, business (not just business law, but how business actually gets done), and real estate issues is as good as it gets. He agrees to a fee structure at the outset, so there are no surprises, and he does the fastest turnaround on key documents. He's outstanding.

    Michael helped us in a difficult real estate situation; he took what seemed like a impossible problem that would cost a fortune and dismantled it one step at a time. In the end, we got the transaction structured the right way, got the loan modification approved,and closed the deal. I recommend him highly for any business need, especially involving real estate and finance.

    Mr. Eaton advised us on tax matters related to development of real estate, and saved us tens of thousands of dollars as well as maximizing our loan proceeds by structuring the transaction. When we consulted other counsel at a downtown Dallas firm, he told us we'd need to hire at least 3 and possibly 4 different partners at his firm to equal the breadth of experience and expertise that Mr. Eaton has. We don't make a move without him!
