  • Shari M Gianarelli

    Michaela Canterbury is a top-notch lawyer. She has skills beyond those taught in law school. Insightful and kind, she cares about her clients and that makes her able to put together winning stories to present to insurance companies and juries to get the best results possible! I highly recommend her!

    Michaela is a lawyer that any client would be privileged to have representing them. She is extremely intillegent, warm and caring. She really listens when someone is talking to her-this is a rare trait. I recommend her without reservation.
