I hired Mike when he was still practicing at a previous firm to assist with a surgeon attempting to collect a fairly significant medical bill balance from me. During my case he transitioned to his own practice and made the transition seamless. He, along with his HIGHLY intelligent, ever helpful and understanding paralegal Heather, worked very hard to get the bill reduced by tens of thousands. Although I was at times resistant to the rational answers they had to give me, they were both always so patient with my frustrations. Mike and Heather always accommodated my requests for correspondence via email, as it was the easiest way for me as I work nightshift but probably took more effort on their part. It does not seem important but truly helped to reduce some of the stress of this whole process, and shows just how client centered this duo really is.
Overall, these two make up a great team, and I am glad they were on my side.

My wife and I were being harassed and targeted by the manager at our apartment complex to the point where he was threatening eviction. Once it got to the point that we were fed up with it and decided to seek legal counsel, a friend recommended Mike to us. Mike was very fast and efficient at handling the matter. He sent an amazing notice to the apartment building, the management company, and the building owner outlining how we had been harassed and what we would do if did not stop. All we wanted was to be left alone to finish out our lease in peace. The notice was so good that the owner of the building stepped in and not only reassured us that we would not be bothered for the rest of our lease, but we also got a discount on our rent for the remainder of the lease. We couldn't be any happier with the result.

Mike did an amazing job for me. He moved fast and efficient. My mind was at ease for how well he worked. I had full confidence in him for representing me and he dominated. Highly recommend Mike to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on a number of matters. Mike is a strong advocate for his clients, but is also respected by opposing counsel and court personnel. This respect is obvious when you enter the courthouse with him, and it, along with his knowledge of the law and local court rules, is invaluable. Mike is smart, reliable and brings effective results at very reasonable fees. I can’t recommend Mike enough.
