Relationship: Co-worker
"Although I'll admit I'm somewhat biased as Michael is one of my partners, he is the only lawyer I know that has been told by a judge, during the middle of a trial, that he is one of the best trial lawyers she had ever seen."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jun 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I knew Michael's reputation before I was familiar with his work. A mediator once recommended Michael to me as a referral source, which I thought spoke volumes about his ability and trustworthiness."
