About me

The most important goal in being a persons' attorney is seeing to the client's best interest.  Determine what the client needs and use that as the measure of  what you are seeking to achieve.   After 45 years plus of being an attorney, it is essential that you carefully listen to the client.

  • Mark L. Gantz

    I am proud to to say that Miles Hurwitz is my partner, and mentor! Not only is he an excellent attorney, but he is one of the most honest and ethical persons I have ever met! Perhaps the best proof of my sentiments is that the Michigan Supreme Court appointed Miles to serve (without pay) on the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board weeding out the bad/dishonest and unethical lawyers. Miles served as Chairman of that Board for three years, and at the conclusion of his term, he was honored by many of the leading jurists and lawyers in the state of Michigan. In addition, Miles is a legal scholar, and reads just about anything he can find that relates to his areas of expertise. Miles clients love him, and it is not uncommon for opposing counsel to refer significant legal matters to him, because he is the best!. Miles is truly a "lawyers lawyer"
