Michael and I have worked together on a great many cases. He is diligent, creative, responsive and ultra reliable. I not only work together with Michael, I also refer clients to him. This to me is the highest praise that I can show towards another professional. That is to refer to him a relative, friend or client to have Micheal work on a matter for them. He really knows how important it is to keep his clients fully informed at all key phases of each case. Further, Michael knows how to and does obtain great results for his clients. I highly recommend and endorse this Michael Baer.
