    I endorse Mike. Over the years, I have had several matters with Mike. He has a great legal mind. But more important, he has the highest ethics. He treats his clients, opposing counsel and court staff with respect and courtesy. In short, if you need a lawyer, you owe it to yourself to contact Mike.
