Smart, Accurate, Experienced, Humble and I want him to always be on my side!!!!
Michael is wise beyond. A no non-sense experienced advocate. His expertise as well as his demeanor are of an attorney who calculates and strategizes before laying the groundwork of a case. Always remembers that there are "people" involved. Like a great athlete, he is laser focused on the end game and what it will take to get there and....."yes" win.

Gets it done!
Absolutely an attorney I would recommend if you want your case handled with professionalism and in a timely manner. He doesn't shy away from going for the gusto and getting the best outcome for the client. He handled a prior personal injury for my husband and wouldn't let the insurance company low ball our settlement- definitely puts the client first. I was so pleased with the manner in which he handled our personal injury case, we recently hired him in a landlord/tenant matter.

Excellent Advocate & Counselor
Mike has represented our company aggressively and intelligently in pending litigation. He always keeps an eye on the big picture, and is not one to simply run up the tab for the sake of multiplying litigation. The underlying business objective is always of paramount concern - he allows a GC like me to rest easy knowing he has the company's best interests in mind at all times.
