A very powerful and knowledgeable defense attorney
Posted by Parinda Fri Sep 16 2011
Mr. Desantis represented me as a defense attorney in an automobile accident case, in which the plaintiff was seeking compensation for a very large amount.
Mr.Desantis is extremely knowledgeable and is extremely well organized. The plaintiff had consulted multiple health-care professionals for the treatment and there were a lot of incosistencies and treament related gaps. Mr Desantis had conducted a thorough review of all the medical records, and presented these issues to the jury. His court interactions with the judge, court staff, and plaintiff's attorney were very professional. He is superb with cross-examination. His opening and closing remarks were to the point, with all the facts the jury needed to make the decission. I am very thankful how he handled my case. He is simply the best!!!

I highly recommend Attorney Michael DeSantis for personal injury and insurance defense practice. I had the distinct "pleasure" of being opposite Mr. DeSantis in a recent maritime personal injury case. Mr. DeSantis is an advocate of the highest intellectual caliber, which allowed us to cut to the issues of the case and cut down on the costs of litigation. He conducted depositions with a speed and effectiveness I have not seen matched, and which I aspire to in my practice. And he does it all with a gracious, professional, and kind character which I am sure any attorney who knows him will attest to. Had we gone to trial I know I would have had to be at my best to go against Mr. DeSantis, and I believe any insurer would be well served by having Mr. DeSantis handle their defense.

Mike DeSantis is well known for his practice as a trial lawyer and litigator in Maryland. He is a named partner at Hartel, Kane, DeSantis & Howie, L.L.P. with years of trial experience. My colleagues and I have worked with Mike in numerous cases, both in an adversarial capacity and representing co-defendants. His experience is unmatched. I have always been impressed by his tireless dedication to the client and with his awareness of how every subtle legal and factual issue will impact a case. Perhaps more importantly, Mike is always professional and courteous, even in the most difficult cases. I think this allows him to obtain results that other lawyers might find difficult.
