I highly recommend Michael Polk!
When I first spoke to Mike about the situation I was in with a slumlord and a rental property I had recently signed a lease for, I wasn't sure if I had a legitimate case. All I knew was that I was in emotional/financial distress, and was feeling powerless against a prominent real estate firm. Mike quickly revisited the real estate law surrounding my situation and confirmed that my roommates and I did have a case. From this point forward, Mike went to bat for us. He was professional, knowledgable, compassionate, and always available to thoughtfully answer our questions each step of the way. When the real estate company counter-sued, Mike offered to take our case to court at no additional cost; we were blown away by this gesture. However, in the end, we were able to settle outside of court as a direct result of his exceptional negotiation skills. Mike's experience, tactfulness, and follow-through brought me so much comfort during a tumultuous time. I couldn't be more grateful to him, and I can't recommend his services enough!

The Insurance Co. refused to restory my house
The insurance co. was willing to pay the portion of gutting my house after the incident but refusing to restore it. The adjusters were extremely rude and outright refused to pay restoring my house after it was gutted. I got tired of the run around games and Insurance Co. not willing to work with me. I consulted many lawyers who didn't specialized in the home insurance industry and couldn't help me at all. I finally came across Mike Polk, who did specialized in home insurance claims. I never gone through a lawsuit before and I had no choice to follow suit. He reviewed my claim and was willing to take my case, told me what I needed to do. It took a year, but he followed up anytime there was an update. He charged reasonable prices for his services that he did provide. He's a great attorney, communication was A+ and tells you straight what it's going to be. If you have anything regarding Home Insurance claims, aka real estate I would defiantly recommend Mike Polk. Everything worked out in the end, I was very happy and relieved after it was taken care of. Mike does have a niche in this industry and I would say he is 'To go Guy' regarding Home Insurance claims.

I highly recommend Mike
Mike represented me in civil litigation related to a family business dispute, and within 9 months of the filing of the lawsuit he had won my case for me. After that I asked him to prepare estate documents for me, which he did. Based on my experiences with Mike, I have only good things to say about him. If you need a lawyer, I encourage you to talk with him before you do anything more regarding your legal matters. If you and he decide he can represent you, I suggest that you hire him. He is an excellent lawyer.

Mike is talented, hard working and honest. He has been my attorney for the past 20 years. I would never use another.
Mike has been my attorney for 20 years, he has handled everything from divorce to helping me start and protect two corporations. In every instance whether suing or being sued I came out in good shape. He answers his phone or calls you back in a timely fashion. His pricing is fair. In instances where he felt he may not have the right qualifications and I might be better represented by another attorney he recommended I hired another. He has a great staff to help with all the details. This guy is honest and smart. I would never use anyone else.
