Outstanding!
Michael was outstanding! Handled a severance package and got more than the original offer. Very professional and was always in touch to keep me updated as the process moved along. Very knowledgeable in every aspect of what of could and should be done. My best interest were always at the forefront of everything. Would hire him again and recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

Michael was seriously the best lawyer I've come in contact with! He was excellent at keeping me informed throughout the whole process of my claim. Even before I hired him he explained what to expect, made me comfortable with understanding the steps and didn't bombard me for "the sale" like other lawyers. It's bittersweet that I won't be working with him again (hopefully). I highly suggest him to handle your claim(s)!

No hesitation to recommend him
Mr. Karst was superb. He was on time, returned calls and emails promptly, explained anything I asked, did not over-promise results, was professional and very pleasant. He is one of few lawyers without a superior attitude. Additionally, he was very knowledgable and detailed. I am very pleased with my settlement and would have zero hesitation to recommend him to anyone.

Michael Karst - A Man You Can Trust
My husband and I retained Michael Karst to represent us in an unusual claim against a prominent, nationwide corporation who, through admitted, complete and utter negligence, turned our world upside down. We solicited Michael's assistance after exhausting every angle on our own to negotiate a fair settlement - after a very low offer had been presented to us. Although efforts to further our gain were unsuccessful, negotiating the settlement terms and verbiage would have been impossible without Michael representing our interests. The vendor utilized every tactic possible, including stonewalling, as well as, erroneous and inaccurate facts and wording in the settlement to frustrate us and make us 'go away'. Although Michael did not earn a Contingency Fee for his services, he doggedly represented, protected and ensured our interests. He was knowledgeable, patient, listened, advised and guided us as you would expect from a legal professional; however, the true value of his service was priceless... He was refreshingly honest, protected us as he would his own family, and earned and retained our trust throughout a very long journey. It is thanks to Michael that we were able to 'settle' our claim, and we are finally able to put this nightmare behind us. We would absolutely, highly recommend Michael Karst!!!

Very Please!
I was laid-off unexpectedly by my employer. Patrick negotiated a very good severance for me. He advised me not to accept what they had initially offered me and provided excellent recommendations on what I should request and do. He handled everything for me in a timely manner. He always responded quickly to me calls or emails and he contacted me whenever he had new information. In addition to being knowledgeable and thorough, he was a good listener and kind. I know I would not have received as good of a severance package had he not helped me!
