  • Fred Ruotolo

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Michael for over ten years. I have and continue to rely on his advice and guidance for business issues that arise in my client's divorces. I have referred many people to him including family, friends and clients. His advice has always been helpful. I have also relied on him to help people get find the right attorney to handle legal matters in areas of law that he does not personally practice. I trust Mike's advice and highly recommend him.
