Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
It is my privilege to offer an endorsement for this highly accomplished attorney. As a former colleague at the Minnesota Attorney General's Office, I gained familiarity with Michael's strong skills and breadth of knowledge on health licensing matters. He gained the strong respect of his colleagues and happened to also be highly regarded as a person. Since his work as Assistant Attorney General, Michael has transitioned his expertise to a private law practice where he gives seasoned and dedicated representation to clients facing health licensing issues (among his other areas of practice). I endorse Michael with confidence and recommend his services to anyone finding themselves in need.
