Superb Timely Advice!
Faced with a difficult decision and a very small window of time, I reached out to Attorney Earner for legal advice of a personal nature. Michael made me feel very comfortable in his response, expressing no judgement and obviously was very knowledgeable concerning the matter at hand. His immediate action made me feel my case was high on his priority list and resulted in a more than satisfactory outcome! He will certainly be my attorney going forward!

Excellent advice when needed!
While assisting my brother through a very difficult period, we reached a point where obtaining legal advice became a necessity. Through a referral we had the good fortune to meet Attorney Earner. Through his counsel, options we had never considered were brought to light and resulted in an amicable resolution for all parties involved. Without hesitation, I'd recommend this lawyer to friends, family, or anyone else in need of competent, helpful, understanding representation.

Property boundary dispute
Property boundary dispute. My neighbor and I have identified that we disagree on the location of one pin. After discussing my deed with the town tax people, I chose to bring this to Mike to get guidance. The very next day Mike got back with me after reviewing for joining deeds I’ve other properly loaners .He then advised me of the rules or should I say laws and what I could do to proceed. Mike’s quick actions and deep interest for the truth impress me and I appreciate his work.

Help with my accident
I was lost when I got into my accident. Everything I worked so hard for was gone and I didn’t have the money to get back on my feet. Michael was a godsend. With his advice and help I was able to pick myself back up and get what was rightfully mine. I cannot say how greatful I am Michael, thank you, thank you so much for helping me and my family.

Review
I chose Michael Earner as my attorney because he is a consummate professional and an expert in his field. I’ve been seeking legal advice and representation from Mr. Earner for about 2 years now and it’s safe to say that he’s my man for the future as well. The best thing about having Michael as an attorney is he gives you the bottom line up front and skips the circle talk. You don’t have to chase him around and play phone tag either, you can always count on him to get back in touch with you ASAP.

The best lawyer in town
I first reached out to Mike after I had problems with an insurance company not paying for what they should. Within a week we had a plan together and had a letter out to the company explaining why they were wrong and what they needed to do to make it right. They responded about a week later and agreed to make it right. His knowledge of the law and ability to get people to do what is right is awesome. There is nobody I would recommend more.

Best lawyer I have ever used.
Michael Earner was a great help to my family when my mother was dying. He was very quick and efficient at helping my parents draw up wills. He was very polite while asking some very difficult questions given the situation that he was put into to help us out quickly in our time of need. Michael is very knowledgeable and was a great asset to us. If I ever need any legal assistance again he we will be the only lawyer that I call.

My first call
Attorney Earner helped me with a legal issue that I didn't expect to be in and that caused a lot of immediate stress and potential hardship for me and my family. He got involved immediately and within a few days I knew everything was going to be ok. He completely resolved the issue for me and it turned out exactly the way I had hoped. He will always be my first call and I recommend anyone in Eliot or anywhere in York county do the same.

This guy knows what he's doing
Michael helped me understand everything about my VA claim process. Even though it was too early in the process to hire him, he still took time to answer my questions and outline the process. I am definitely going to hire him if I run into any trouble.
