Prefessional and prompt
Michael responded to our inquiry and answered all of our questions about our legal matter the day we called. He helped to find us another attorney who had more expertise while still remaining available for consultations along the way. We appreciated his approach to finding us the best counsel for our specific situation.

Knowledgable and approachable
Michael Smith set up a living trust for my wife and I and helped us choose the right business entity for our small business start-up. Michael was responsive to all our questions and explained legalize in terms we could understand.

Family Care
Michael Smith took care of my adult son's guardianship/conservatorship after a serious injury. During an very difficult time for my family, he was professional, responsive, and compassionate. He was sensitive to the urgency of the case to preserve uninterrupted benefits and, honestly, made everything as easy as possible so that I could take care of my family and not worry about legal "stuff." A year later, when filing my reports for the first time, I requested his assistance and he was just patient and thorough. I recommend his services without reservation.

Excellent Attorney for my Family Estate
Over the last 3 years I have had my fair share of working with attorneys and if it was not for the job that Michael Smith did for me and my family I may have gone crazy. I had a complicated situation involving my fathers estate which included a small business and unfortunately he did not have a will. Michael helped me understand what needed to be done and helped me along the process and always made himself available anytime I had questions. If you are looking for an attorney that can help you with Family estate issues I highly recommend giving him a call.

Integrity and Character In My Experience
We have used Michael for various things relating to our business. Every time he has been incredibly knowledgable, honest and helpful with both drafting complex documents and thoroughly explaining everything so we could easily understand them. He has helped us with numerous things such as company LLC formation, partnership agreements, buyout agreements, wills and various other items. I can't say enough about how satisfying it is working with an attorney who genuinely has our best interest in mind. We will continue to use him whenever we can.
