Michael Caryl represented me against a lawyer who was abusively overcharging me and inflating his hours. Michael took care of the problem in a very effective manner. At the same time, he was always very professional, caring, and worked with the highest ethical standards. I strongly recommend him without any reservations.
Mike did an excellent job on an attorney lien issue that was resolved by his thoroughly-researched and well-argued opinion letter. I have referred others to him and would not hesitate to retain him again. He is one of the best in this area of the law, hands down.
Mike is a pre eminent expert in legal contracts and ethics. He is the 'go to' guy when there is any real or imagined disputes between lawyers and clients.
Did an outstanding job for me. He worked hard and did all the little things that lead to a good result.
Dissatisfied. Mr. Caryl would forget what was said or what the goals were, thereby doing things unnecessarily, repeat work and bill for it, and misstate conversations. The level of trust we wanted was therefore not there, and we worried Mr. Caryl was loooking out for his interest only.
Inquisitive, deliberate and thorough, Mike is a lawyerâ€™s lawyer. I have worked with Mike in several capacities but most recently he served as an expert witness in a contentions fee dispute matter in which I was counsel. I was impressed with Mikeâ€™s comprehensive approach and his ability to capture the minutiae of the matter. Mike worked diligently to understand every issue and offered careful, competent testimony about the ethical issues in the case. I heartily recommend Mike Caryl.
