We hired Mike as part of a complicated construction litigation matter. We knew that getting him involved would be our best chance to get the case settled, because Mike is not only a great construction lawyer, but also a very reasonable and practical attorney. Many lawyers are happy to run up a big bill while they "process" a case and thereby milk their clients dry. Mike isn't like that. He will work hard to reach the most practical, cost efficient result possible -- hopefully with a speedy settlement, but with litigation if necessary. I could not recommend him more highly.
