I am writing this letter as a testimonial of my personal legal experience with Michael Martin Zaitz. Over the past several months he has represented my company and I with the utmost professionalism. Being on the receiving end of a lawsuit, especially one that you do not deserve, can be an extremely taxing process. After having a stressful experience with my previous lawyer, a dear friend recommended Michael and it was the best decision I could have made. Michael immediately immersed himself on a personal level. What quickly became apparent to me was his attention to detail. Inundated with over 25,000 pages of information, he managed to find key pieces of evidence that were crucial towards my defense. I would highly recommend his legal services to anyone seeking an ethical attorney that is compassionate yet aggressive towards the final outcome of their case. He understands the severity of each occurrence as it relates to his cases and is highly versed at litigation. Above all, Michael Martin Zaitz is a gentlemen and a very knowledgeable professional at his firm. Having him represent me has been an advantage and a pleasant experience.

Michael Zaitz is a thorough and impressive lawyer who provides service on many levels: wise counsel, knowledge without arrogance, fair fees, advocacy, an ethical approach to the law, an ability to marry the smallest fact with a big picture overview of a legal question. His legal experise is eclectic, but he admits to areas of the law he does not know. He has been my lawyer both for litigation and contracts. He worked closely with me every step of the way, and took the time to resolve concerns in a manner that encouraged free and open discussion.
