  • Michael Bruce Greenstein

    Attorney Tabano is a skilled and experienced attorney who won't shy away from a necessary fight, but who will always look for less contentious alternatives to cut through the red tape and get the job done. Some lawyers like to play ego games and grandstand on their clients' dime, but you won't get that from him. I consider him a respected colleague, and an honorable opponent.
