I have worked with Michael for many years. He has always been a great resource and easy to work with. He always keeps the clients interest first. He is very knowledgeable and carries things to completion. I personally have used Michael and introduced him to others. The people I have introduced Michael to have always thanked me for making the introduction.

the right man for the job
Mike helped us on three separate matters, and in each case was the right man for the job. He was thorough and exact, and at every step along the way he made sure we understood the issues at hand. He is a first-class professional, and we wouldn't consider hiring anyone else.

Concise, Real-World Help
I enthusiastically recommend Mike Resko. He provided much needed assistance in negotiating the lease for my new office space. He walked me through the process in a clear and concise way. I feel like we avoided potential pitfalls, but at the same time Mike was realistic about what was appropriate to request. Everything went smoothly and quickly.
