The best experience with Lawyers so far
Michael took my case after listening to me for over 1 hour. He explained all the options I had and diligently worked the case for over a few months. The resultvwas better than I expected. I felt Michael was looking after my interest, he did take the time to understand my situation which was employment related and kept me regularly informed of the progress. He was extremely professional This was certainly a positive experience

Caring Attorney
I hired Michael because he helped a friend of mine in an employment dispute and my friend received a favorable outcome. Thankfully my out come turned out favorably also. I was fired from my job when I was at home caring for a seriously ill child. I went to Michael for help and we were able to resolve the situation. Michael even lowered his fee for me and worked with me regarding the retainer. He knew I didn't have money and worked with me on a plan. He doesn't talk down to you like some attorneys do. I'm glad the situation Is over and I can move on with my life. I whole heartedly recommend Michael. He's a top notch attorney who cares about his clients.

Employment Matter
I recently needed to hire a labor attorney. After some research I hired Michale Kane to handle my matter. This turned out to be a great decision as Mike was everything and more in what an advocate should be. His knowledge of the law in his specialty is excellent, but there is much more to being a true professional. His calm and careful approach helped me to stay focused and keep emotions out of my decision making process. Should the need arise, I would absolutely use Mike again, and he has my strongest reccomendation.

Client's Candid Opinion of Attorney Michael G. Kane's Professionalism and Representation
I have found Attorney Michael G. Kane easy to communicate with, responsive, well-knowledged (up-to-date) in his field of expertise, and immediately takes charge to addresses issues where and when required. In my dealings with him, I also found that he has successfully implemented the appropriate amount of professionalism and human compassion for his client, and renders reliable candid advise. He has demonstrated Courtroom professionalism during preparatory / investigative legal proceedings resulting in obtaining valuable information from adversarial and friendly witnesses. We hire attorneys to represent us and to fight to correct the wrong done us. In doing so, an attorney must gather information from a number of sources and must be able to present it in a manner that is easily digestible. Attorney Kane has demonstrated an ability to do so both verbally and in written format. I am glad, relieved and comforted that Attorney Michael G. Kane is addressing my legal issues and their impact on my health, life and ability to financially support myself and family as they are intertwined. Each time I communicate with him, I feel that I chose the correct representation.
