Contested Name Change Case
Mike is a sharp lawyer that took on my child's contested name change case. He quickly researched the legal issue and Mike said we'd use this law to set our case. The judge provided her decision based on exactly that same statute. He efficiently communicated with me and I was able avoid a costly case. We won the case and I appreciated his opinion in the courtroom and I took his counsel when having to address the court immediately in the trial. I highly recommend him!

Amazing attorney
I wish there was a way to put in words how great Mike is. I had a case where someone owed me money and he helped me do everything, from what to expect to settling in court to making sure the judgement was entered into the courts and in front of a judge. He also went as far as to make sure that I am not the one who is responsible for late payments. He calmed me down when I was panicking and remained cool and collective throughout the entire process. Usually responds right away even if I email him on a Sunday or late at night. Cannot say enough great things about him. You will not be disappointed with him!

The best!
I haven't needed a lawyer in the past but found myself in a difficult and prolonged real estate purchase with protracted title issues. The sellers then said they were canceling my contract. After two weeks of worry and trying to build a case to support my position, my realtor suggested I contact Mike. When I went to see him Mike had already looked over my documents. He listened carefully, asked questions to be sure he understood the situation and the outcome I was looking for, and suggested a path forward. He wrote one letter over the weekend to the seller's attorney. The letter was short, succinct, and unequivocal. Two days later the seller's attorney said they would honor the original contract. The process to purchase the property excellerated noticeably and was resolved within the next few months. I can't say enough good things about Mike, his abilities to listen, narrow the information to its critical components, clarify the concerns and needs of his clients, and take decisive action. I hope I don't need an attorney in the future, but if I do, it will be Mike Bramnick

Tremendous Asset to Our Organization
I am the CEO of a residential construction company. We operate in 9 states on the east coast and have been in business for over 20 years. I have worked with Mike for about 6 years. Given the nature of our business we often have the need for legal representation. Given our geographic territory we need someone who is adaptable and will find solutions regardless of the obstacle. Mike has assisted my organization over the years with matters such as Federal/State Department of Labor Audits, Employment Commission Audits, EEOC claims, Subcontractor Agreements, Separation Agreements, Employee Handbook, Non-Compete Clauses, Collections, and Customer Contracts. These represent only a few examples where Mike has provided professional legal representation for our company. Our industry is finally starting to recover from the recession. I truly believe that were it not for our partnership with Mike, we would not have survived the downturn as successfully as we have. He is an integral part of our success story. I recommend his services confidently and without any reservation.
