    I endorse this lawyer. I have know Michael Goltry for nearly twenty years and have referred several clients to him. He has a great ability to understand complex issues. My clients have always been happy with his work, even if it required them to rethink some of their desires. His attention to detail helped them avoid costly future litigation and put them on a track to success. I highly recommend him.
