Exceptional
I first met Michael when soliciting legal counsel to represent our homeowners association. After our first meeting together, it was evident that the decision to retain his firm was the right one. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to continue developing a professional and personal relationship with Michael. I have also worked with him on a number of financial and business matters. He has extensive legal knowledge in his areas of practice and aggressively pursues his client's interests at all times. He can quickly break down complex legal issues and develop insightful and practical direction. Whether you are seeking preventative, ongoing, or litigation-related advice, Michael’s expertise and advice is difficult to surpass. He has and will continue to be an attorney that I highly recommend.
