4.5 stars 10 totalReview Michael Haber
Posted by Deborah Dunbar
I communicated with Mr. Haber exclusively through Avvo and did not speak directly to him regarding locating an attorney named in a relative's will. I had already attempted to locate said lawyer with tools at my disposal. Mr. Haber indicated hat he may have ones that were not available to the general public. Although he attempted to find this person, he did not provide any further information than I already had, but I do appreciate his willingness to help.

I initially obtained advice from Mr. Haber through Avvo and discussed my initial matter with him. His concise and vast knowledge of all maters led me to hire him for my case.
His personal attention and workability led me to hire him for an additional two matters, which he is attentively attending to all with great success. I would definitely recommend him.

Michael S. Haber provided me with clear instructions regarding which forms to file in my defense against a frivolous lawsuit. I needed a clarification of what form(s) was/were necessary to file with the court to defend against the action brought. I thank him profusely for his expert guidance!

How good Mr. Haber’s quality and talent as a lawyer is clearly demonstrated at his website, which was complimented by the lawyer who worked for me before, too.
Michael’s ability to explain things accurately to the point impressed me, and made me realize that was the sign of an experienced legal expert as he is. His comment inspired me to figure out what is right and proper at any given moments in my case.
I appreciated his accommodated fee conditions and I am fond of his pleasant old-fashioned manner I felt comfortable with, so I was able to eliminate my anxiety.
Yes, I highly recommended Michale as a reliable, professional lawyer.

My initial phone call with Mr. Haber went very well. He provided an overview of what he might be able to do for me and he sounded very competent. Because of this I agreed to an initial consultation to review my case in more detail. The face to face meeting went equally well as the call. He provided a lot of information and the impression he gave was of someone very trustworthy. Given this experience I felt safe enough to move forward on a working contract, an agreed upon form of communication (specifically email) and a retainer amount. Unfortunately this meeting would be the last time I would receive any real value of his services.
After several months of no follow up I made several attempts to get a call back or email reply. After many attempts I got an email response where he indicated he had been going through personal matters and was unavailable. While I can certainly appreciate this type of issue occurring with anyone, I'm not sure anyone could accept a lack of response for several weeks without being somewhat concerned. Nevertheless I accepted the excuse and continued to wait for further updates. Several months continued to go by again with no follow up so I began the chase again. Email after email, call after call, I finally got another reply. What was it? Another excuse. This time it was that he was on vacation and would provide updates upon his return the following week. This would be the last time I got any response whatsoever from him. When the following week came and went, I continued the chase once again, emails, phone calls, etc. but to no avail. I wrote a final email basically stating what my experience had been working with him from the very beginning and that if I had not received a reply within a weeks time frame, to consider this an end to our agreement. Needless to say I got no response.
I can only speculate why he would completely ignore my numerous attempts to get an update or at least a simple call back or reply but his lack of response in my opinion was completely unprofessional. If he saw no value in handling my case or simply didn't have the bandwidth to handle my case then a simple call back or reply would've been sufficient so I wouldn't have lost all the time waiting for him to basically leave me with absolutely nothing that I didn't already have prior to hiring him. I consider this experience money lost and valuable lesson learned. To all those inexperienced in hiring an attorney beware, especially with Mr. Haber.

Mr. Haber's manner was so delightful and discussing my problem with him was such a pleasurable experience I am no longer anxious about accepting the role as executor of my uncle's will. I am now comfortable asking questions of the paralegal in charge of his will. Mr. Haber put me at ease and gave me the confidence that I needed. Thank you.

While all attorneys are supposed to be pretty much 'time clock billing machines', Mr. Haber must come from a rare breed. He is a kind, very concerned, good listener who creatively helped me put together a non-compete negotiation with my new employer. He was accommodating enough with the billing process to allow me to afford the legal costs. I recommend Mr. Haber very highly as I found his experience, knowledge and good heart to be critical pieces in my negotiation success to best protect my interests. I have worked, on a corporate level for other cases, with several attorneys and, in my opinion, on my own case, Michael Haber, has demonstrated the outstanding ability of building up credibility for the legal professionals as he is a fantastic attorney and one whom I would strongly recommend at any time. He's the best!

Michael is truly a lawyer’s lawyer. He has provided excellent legal advice on complex issues relating to civil litigation. His thorough grasp of issues and his ability to carve out a successful legal strategy are his hallmark. I am completely confident in his legal abilities. What also stands him apart from others is his unstinting dedication in obtaining the very best results for his clients.

Michael handled a probate matter for me a couple of years ago. Even though the matter was complex, he simplified the matter, clearly explained it to me, and planned a strategy that worked 100%.
He was easy to talk to and I felt more like he was a friend than just a lawyer.
