    Mike and I have worked together on countless commercial real-estate transactions from simple leases to very complex structured financing to assemblage of large commercial properties and I have always thanked my lucky stars he was on each transaction. His knowledge is just incredible but even more important are his negotiating skills. He fully endorses the concept of taking the adversary to its boundaries before concluding negotiations and his success rate at reaching favorable agreements is extremely high. Did I mention that he's also a CPA? He knows more about finance(ing) than I can ever hope to know. You will be well served in consulting Mike on any business or real estate transaction.

  • Daniel Joseph Weintraub

    I have known Michael for over 15 years and have worked closely with him on several coomplex matters. Michael distinguishes himself from his peers iin several ways. First he is both a lawyer and a CPA. He is very hands on and is a true fighter, relentlessly commited to achieving a positive outcome for his clients. Michael is no nonsense in his approach and is a creative problem solver who constantly thinks outside the box. He has a deep knowledge of the facts and law related to his client's problems. Michael is conscientious with respect to his client's budget, is pragmatic and above all else, is a highly ethical professional.
