Well versed and persistent.
I have worked with Michael Furlong for many years on a variety of issues from pursuing clients who were not paying their bills to estate planning. In the courtroom Michael is adroit and intuitive. He comes into court extremely well prepared. His preparation coupled with his courtroom presence has resulted in him getting a favorable outcome in every case I have asked him to work on. On the Estate Planning front Michael collaborates well with the other professionals I have brought into the discussion. He keeps himself well educated on the latest aspects of the relevant law/code. I have confidence in what he produces for our family. Michael shows discretion and professionalism in all his actions and I recommend him highly.
