Honest and helpful
I appreciate the advice he gave me even tho he told me that it would cost me more to hire an attorney then it would be to handle the debt I was battling. He gave me good advice and I have a direction to follow.

based on response
yes i did not have any direct contact with Michael, but after hunting for advice all over the real word and online, for day! he is the only person that simply didn't ask me to hire an attorney or get a free consultation. just a few words from him put a jolt back in my spine. Its not much but hope this is helpful for any future client.

"Mr. Warshaw is an insightful contributor to Avvo and has earned the respect of his peers. Has several appellate victories to his credit, including one published just this week allowing an injured person to proceed against a public entity. This indicates that, in the right case, he will make that extra effort for those in need of help and knows what he's doing. I also know from his answers that he has the experience to realize that not every case is the "right case" to be appealed for the sake of appealing as he tries to convey that to uninitiated questioners. Without hesitation, I endorse Michael Warshaw."
