Over a 20 year period, my partners and I built a business from nothing to over $40 million and 200 employees at its top before selling to an international investment group in 2010. For 15 of those years we worked closely with Mike Curry. Mike set up our HR department; we were able to effectively manage this very sensitive area by allocating responsibility through our highly skilled Controller, thus no HR Director, staff, and large associated expenses. While occasional disputes did occur; they were minor both from financial, goodwill, and professional fee standpoints. Mike's insight and oversight of our HR was invaluable in preserving a high level of legal compliance; more importantly in maintaining excellent employee relations.
Equally as important was Mike's demonstrated leadership in strategy once any dispute, employment law, contracts, etc., on the rare instance, moved from sabre rattling to summons. Each time, within 24 hours of notice, Mike would have us recite relationship history and why failure occurred. We'd examine our position objectively, develop a preliminary approach, and he'd call opposing counsel. Mike allowed no dallying on either side, seeking resolution in his unrelenting, 100% focused, business like way. What smart CEO wants any dispute to linger? We all have better things to do. Mike made sure we returned to our executive stations in record time.
In all the years we worked together, I believed Mike delivered the best possible service, never once feeling that we "lost" or could have done better. His guidance, frankness, and integrity was always welcome helping to prevent needless loss, endless distraction, or worse. Mike is one exceptional professional and I highly recommend him.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Michael Curry for about ten years, first as a neighbor and friend, and, in the past few years, as co-counsel on a number of cases. These cases have been quite complex and difficult, and Mike tackles them with enthusiasm and perceptiveness. His legal knowledge is vast, and he is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
