Gray experience each and every time
Michael has represented my family on more than one occasion. Each time was a great experience and a great result. He kept us looped in and informed and always took the time to explain things and answer questions. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney

Glad I ound Mr. Favia
Retained Mr. Favia for the sale of a trust property. He was knowledgeable of the subject matter and provided instruction to aid in the sale. While living in Missouri, I relied on Mr. Favia to conduct business in Chicago. He presented himself in a professional manner and would not hesitate to employ him in the future.

State Licensing Matter
Mr. Favia was engaged to assist with a State licensing issue that had great significance to us. He was extremely knowledgeable about the field, very professional and responsive. He assisted us with the legal issues involved and helped to get a very favorable result. His knowledge and expertise on State legal issues and his mastery of the procedural issues are responsible for the results obtained.
