Extremely pleased and helpful!
Mike did a great job representing our group throughout the years and was extremely responsive and informative, getting us answers to additional questions whenever needed. It never took him days to respond to a concern, whether it be a settlement on the lease or dissolving a partnership. He offered sound, thorough advice throughout the entire process. Mike and his whole group were great to work with. I never felt like they were not doing the best job possible and that we were in great hands.

Colony Park Neighborhood Association
Mike McGovern was able to help our neighborhood form a Community Development Corp. which we had been stymied for years. He was concise in his explanations, no question was turned away as being insignificant. I was always able to reach him by phone as well as email. It was truly a pleasurable experience working with Mike and would recommend him to friends and family

Top Talent and Team
Michael was able to jump in at a critical point of lease negotiations for our Company when we relocated our business to Austin. My attorney, with his firm, was out of town during the closing of the lease negotiations and Mike McGovern stepped in seamlessly, took over and closed the deal with no hiccups or delays. He has worked on several other contracts that have come our way since and delivered timely, accurate negotiations and responses that have been critical to our success thus far. I would highly recommend Mike McGovern.

Wonderful Experience
Mike has been an amazing help through a exciting and rough experience. I might not be able to fully express my gratitude for Mike's ability to stay in constant communication and his ability to be such a calming voice when life flips you upside down. He has guided us through the purchase of partnership interest in our business and is helping us navigate commercial real estate. I am so happy to have him on my team!

"I have known and worked with Michael for several years, and can say without question that he is of the utmost character and integrity. As a licensed attorney myself, I am aware of the challenges an attorney faces controlling emotions and expectations of the clients you represent, while at the same time advocating on their behalf in the most practical way allowable under the law. He is reliable, trustworthy, and dependable, and always gets the job done. There isn’t an attorney I would trust more with my legal issues.
