  • Gerard William O'Brien

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Michael is thoughtful, honest, hard working and cares about his clients. Michael has been a colleague of mine in this noble profession for what is getting to be a long time. He's also been a good friend, though we seldom get together. He is a very good lawyer my earlier endorsement remains the same.
