Michael Porter is undoubtedly the most professional, respectful and compassionate lawyer. His firm was completely attentive to my case, and kept me fully informed as we progressed. My case involved an unnecessary surgery on my foot which led to dis figuration, pain and limitations. I was compensated with his help and was able to find closure. I highly recommend his firm!
His insights were honest, accurate, and his suggestions were ethically sound.

I give my highest possible recommendation to Mike Porter. Through no fault of my own I was seriously injured in a high-speed car accident one morning on the way to work. Soon after I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. While the physical impacts were extensive, my everyday ability to function both on the job and at home was no longer the same. The overall impacts of this injury cut short many years of professional and academic experience, and my career was derailed. I will never forget Mike's personal attention, persistence, and professionalism as they guided me through a long process of medical rehabilitation and financial uncertainty. In short, his work provided long-term security for my wife and two daughters. I cannot thank him enough for his help during my time of need.

Mike is an exceptional litigator and Upstate New York's best trial lawyer whose skill is matched by his compassion and ethics. As someone who has experience in defending a variety of different torts (including managing product liability matters for a publicly traded multinational medical device manufacturer), I can say his aggressive, yet pragmatic, approach to the litigation is incredibly unique and highly effective. No one has taken more verdicts or secured better outcomes for his clients in the past five years in Upstate New York. Perhaps most importantly, Mike is the type of lawyer who you would send a family member to in a difficult time, know he would serve them in a compassionate manner that gives them the best chance of success.
