Client Centric Attorney
Milton is a very well rounded and experienced attorney that takes a refreshing value add approach to client needs. We have worked together on a few client transactions and relationships, and his knowledge, expertise, and communication skills were top notch.

Great experience working with this attorney.
I was engaged by Milton as a forensic accountant to investigate fraud issues at one of his clients. Milton was extremely responsive to both the client and I. I could tell that, as the client's corporate attorney, he really cared about helping the client. Milton was very knowledgeable and professional in my dealings with him.

Representing my bank in a transaction
I have know and worked with Milton for almost 15 years and have never know him to perform any less than excellent. His approach is calm, his experience is hard to match, his suggestions are always value added and his recognition of what is needed to be accomplished is comforting. Milton and I have had numerous documentation transactions over the years and I have never walked away with the sense that I was not well represented.
