    I have known Mike for nearly a decade and he has always been smart, capable, and effective as an attorney. Recently I had the opportunity to work with him on a civil litigation matter. Mike obtained a fantastic result for the client under difficult circumstances. He is a stand up guy, and a great lawyer.

    Michael Kemp is an attorney of unmatched talent and dedication. I've watched Michael pour himself into client matters that lesser attorneys would have pushed to the back burner; I have seen him win cases that I'd believed were not winnable. I endorse Michael Kemp without reservation.
