    I have been in the practice of law for over 45 years, with a major emphasis upon real estate matters including building and operations for all types of residential & commercial development. Over this period of time, the requirements for environmental knowledge has surpassed my comfort level. While my experience with other environmental attorneys was satisfactory overall, I continually had concerns with the practically of their advice and ultimately the overwhelming costs. I then met Marc Shaye and have used him on several projects for environmental matters. Besides being satisfied with his technical expertise I have been amazed at the practical approach he takes and the resulting savings both in time and expense. This was true even in dealing with Detroit based properties, which have some of the more complex issues, compounded by political issues. I can without fear or hesitation recommend that you consider Marc for any environmental/legal issues.
