Michael helped me with a separation agreement with my former employer. He went over the agreement and helped me better understand the agreement and what some of my choices were. He also put in touch with his colleage Henry, who handles emplyoment cases. They were very helpful, and I'm truly greatful for all their hard work. They both made a difficult situation a lot easier for me.
