  • Jeffrey Robert Matsen

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked closely with Michael on several high net worth estate planning matters. I have found him to be knowledgeable, responsible, and to do outstanding work. He is bright and competent and takes care of these clients needs with consideration and attention. He is the kind of attorney that makes a difference, not only because of his legal ability and skill, but because he knows and understands his clients and their objectives and concerns.

  • Peter Gilbert Lennington

    I have known Michael through his years of committed membership in WealthCounsel, LLC. Michael's participation and generous sharing of knowledge with the group members is commendable. On numerous occasions, Michael has provided the group with keen observations and insights on how best to tackle a particular estate planning matter -- particularly in the arena of federal estate taxation and asset protection. Consequently, he receives my endorsement.
