Jean has been helpful to me on a number of occasions and circumstances. From helping to start my business to providing counsel throughout the course of my business, Jean has never failed to deliver exactly what was needed, when it was needed.
As importantly, he provided guidance in advance to limit exposure going forward. I would hire him again in an instant. He is always the first name that comes to mind when I'm asked about high quality legal service and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
I am happy to discuss particulars with anyone who would like a more detailed reference of Jean's work, work ethic and/or character.

For over four years, we have used Jean Michel for things ranging from simple contract reviews, all the way up to legal disputes. Prior to him, we had used larger legal firms that made us feel like we were just another client and often times gave advice that was generic and lacked clear recommendation. (i.e. “It’s up to you”, “We can litigate, if you’d like”) Jean has always given us sound advice even when it was not in his favor. We appreciate that no matter gets “dragged out” if it is not necessary just to get more billable hours. Jean is straight to the point and knows all the angles of the situation before discussing them with us.

Jean Christian Michel always answers the phone when you call, returns calls promptly, is very reasonable in his fees, spends ample time addressing your concerns & questions and best of all always seems to give of his time generously without the feeling of you "being on the clock". He by far goes above and beyond what most attorneys I've worked with have done. I highly recommend Jean Christian Michel.
