Thank you Mr. Lenert
Being my first time interacting with an attorney I could not be happier that it was Mr. Lenert. These situations can be quite confusing/stressful but he made sure that I understood the process and was always available to answer my questions. I highly recommend Mr. Lenert for his professionalism and responsiveness I experienced during my case. Very pleased with the outcome and glad he represented me! Thank you Mr. Lenert!

One of a kind attorney!
I would highly recommend Mr. Lenert if you are looking for a unique attorney who is hard working and truly cares. Not only is he experienced and strong technically, but he also brings genuine empathy making you feel comfortable in a tough situation. He listens to learn, is extremely responsive, takes the time to offer detailed informative explanations, and answers questions thoroughly. I always felt he was fair and had my best interests in mind as he navigated the case forward. These skills set him apart and I think Mr. Lenert would be a great mentor to other attorneys in the field. Thank you for all you have done, Mr. Lenert, it was a pleasure working with you!

My small business had a rather strange and upsetting situation that resulted in us reaching out to Michael for the first time. Not only was he incredibly responsive, he was kind and supportive through out the entire ordeal. He took complete ownership and really was our shining hero through this event. I must say, I never want to be back in this situation ever again, BUT the silver lining we found was stumbling across a one of a kind lawyer like Mike. We will recommend him to EVERYONE we know!! Thank you Mike!

Excellent job and a great Attorney
I would like to take this time to recommend and thank Mr. Lenert for an excellent job that he performed while working my case.

Great Job
I think Michael did an amazing job with my case. When he received my file, I believe he was the 4th lawyer to touch the case. My inital lawyer had to step down due to health issues. The case was about 5 1/2 years old when he received it. Out of everyone that touched this case, I feel Michael really fought hard for me. I truly feel he had only my best interests in mind throughout the entire case. He kept informed every step of the way and was patient when I called crying. I am very greatful for everything he did for me and my newphew. I would recomend Michael 100% to anyone. He is dilligent, hard working and very hands on. Anyone that has him as a lawyer is getting the best.
