Professional, responsive, and kind. 100% reliable!
Attorney Boreale is knowledgeable on my consultation on immigration processes. Among all the professionals I consulted both in Tucson and Phoenix Arizona Michael was the mots responsive and professional. He reviewed all the documents for my application to USCID, solving all my questions, and recommending key tips to go to the process successfully. Every time I sent him an email he timely responded which made me confident during all the process. Me and my family are so grateful to Mr. Boraeale so we strongly recommend his services in Immigration Law.

Professional and helpful immigration lawyer
My wife and I hired Michael to help us with my immigration process into the United States. He helped us review and fill out our EAD and Green Card application documents over several separate occasions. He also accompanies us to the Green Card approval interview. Michael and his team were extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. They explained the application requirements in a way that even we could understand, which helped keep our minds at ease even during stressful times. Michael suggested ways to make the whole process smoother, and recommended filing additional documents that supported our case significantly. We admittedly had plenty of questions for Michael, and he was prompt with his communication and presented his answers in a way that, again, we could easily understand. While clearly a professional in his field, he avoided excessive legal jargon, which helped us file all of our documents on time. We will warmly recommend Michael and his team to anyone in need of a first-class lawyer.

ATTORNEY WHO PAYS ATTENTION TO DETAILS
Mr. Boreale was detailed and helpful in his response to my questions regarding non-profit and for profit entities. Our business had to consult with him regarding new rental circumstances, business building plans and ADA compliance measures. He has a friendly demeanor and has a mindful outlook through his legal advice. He takes time to hear you and his consultation was extremly valuable. He gave me a sense of peace and confidence after exploring my options with him and I am truly thankful my questions and concerns were discussed with him.

When I contacted Michael Boreale online...
Michael’s good reviews caught my attention and I messaged him about options and estimates for a situation that might require legal action at some point. He replied within 24 hours offering an idea for a legal approach including estimates as well as an excellent suggestion of what should be done before legal action was possible. I messaged back with more specifics, asking for clarification. He again replied within 24 hours. This time, along with clarification, was an idea even more tailored to what I was aiming for phrased in a way so as to keep expectations realistic, update the previous estimate, and point out information to gather if I wanted to move forward. He was delightfully swift in returning messages, a quality all worriers will find especially appealing. His ideas were clear and he was willing to explain anything that wasn’t. Switching legal approaches for specifics, as opposed to one size fits all, was no problem. He worded things to keep expectations realistic, was upfront about costs and anything else that might be necessary in order to move forward. His approach was informative, straightforward, knowledgeable, timely, concise, and professional- All valuable qualities if you are considering hiring legal help. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael Boreale to anyone valuing the same characteristics that I do. While I hope not to end up needing legal action, if I do, my guess is I will simply find he approaches my issue with the same straightforward, clear, timely, professional style that he’s demonstrated so far. Just that alone goes a long way towards attaining that tenuous state we all so long for, peace of mind.

Best employment attorney!
When I was having the worst time being wrongfully terminated from my place of employment. I was at a loss of what to do and where to turn. I sought out other legal options and most of the other attorneys didn't have time or confidence in my case. When I met with Mike, he spent the time to listen and review the evidence. He was completely honest about what may or may not happen. I pursued what I felt I had to do, and Mike was the perfect attorney for me! Even though my case was small in comparison to others, he gave me the same dedication as his other clients. Mike kept me informed on all correspondence throughout the process. He kept me involved asking for my opinion as well as offering his experienced professional advice. He made the process go as smooth as possible, relieving some of my stress. Mike did a remarkable job, going above and beyond! I would absolutely recommend him!

Helped Us Become a Non-Profit
I had heard nightmare stories about the complexities of applying to the IRS for non-profit status. Our experience with Michael couldn't have been easier. He was clear, responsive, timely, and I considered his rates reasonable. The process was essentially super-easy. I recommend Boreale Law without hesitation. Thank you Mike!

Excellent Counsel
I met with Mike Boreale regarding a tenant issue. He listened carefully, gave calm, sage advice and instructed me regarding the law. I hired him to represent me in court. He was completely prepared and did exactly what was needed, no more no less. The case ran over a week or so and Mike and Samit Bhalala remained available and kept in touch as needed. I have since retained Boreale Law for any future legal issues. It's very comforting to know I have them on my business team.

Efficient and wonderful
We hired Michael to help with a litigation against the Pima County for an unjust employee reprimand. Michael met with us in a timely manner and was very nice and his price was reasonable. He explained the entire process and gave us different senarios of what could happen.

Great Law Firm
Mike Boreale and John Oliver were beyond helpful in helping us with a renter that failed to pay their rent on time for several months. They guided through the process including what the law says, what our rights were, how to approach the tenant about non-payment, and what to do through all steps along the way. With their help and knowledge we were able to have them go to court for us, since we life out of town, and they successfully got the tenant to vacate the house on the date selected by the court. They were always willing to answer any questions we had and they always responded in a timely manner. We wouldn't have been able to evict the tenant without them. We highly recommend this law firm if you need expert advice for evicting a non-paying tenant from a rental property.

Recommendation
I contacted Mr. Boreale to find out if he will be able to assist me in bringing justice on a labor dispute; after a few details on my case he scheduled an appointment. Upon arrival to his office he welcomed my wife and I in a professional and kindly manner and was very through after I shared my case. He explained in detail the steps and preparation we will take in order to have a positive outcome. Mr. Boreale was prepared and assertive when we were at the Arizona Attorney General’s office. He presented the proper documentation and made it a point into bringing Justice to my case. Mr. Boreale knows the law and he possess the knowledge and expertise and will make sure Justice will prevail. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Boreale for taking the case and the outcome was successful. I highly recommend him.

Michael Boreale delivers quality legal advice AND action
We consulted Mike on an employment matter. He was a great listener and promptly outlined our options. He authored a demand letter which clearly advised the employer of their failures, the resultant legal ramifications of these their actions, and their general mishandling of my employment. He made strong points and left them little "wiggle room". Two weeks later, over the holidays, this large employer with a substantial legal department, capitulated to most of Mike's demands and most importantly, they agreed to pay the exact monetary award that we had asked for. Mike was very conservative on the hours he charged for. In fact he charged us only 10% of what we paid to another local attorney for another dispute with this employer. We didn't win that case, but it gave me a good measuring stick to use when evaluating attorneys. The previous attorney sometimes talked down to me and sometimes seemed to act as an agent of the employer. There was none of that with Mike. It was quite clear which side he was on, however, if I suggested some action that was not legally wise, he let me know and steered me in a more appropriate direction. I've only used 2 or 3 attorneys in my life. Mike is clearly the best, as well as the most professional, most considerate and most honest on fees. I would recommend Mike Boreale to anyone....at least anyone I liked.

Boreale Law
We hired Mr. Boreale to assist us opening our first medical practice. We were nervous because our practice is unique and more of a concierge practice. We called multiple attorney's and almost felt we had to hire an out of state attorney who specialized in our medical field. To our surprise we found Mr. Boreale who was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was very responsive and there when we needed him. We also appreciated his fee schedule. It was straight forward and transparent. Excellent attorney. Highly recommended.
