Review and Recording of HOA Association CC&R Documents
We recently used Michael Fleishman to review and record our HOA's updated Master, CC&R and Design Guidelines documents. Michael made the process quick and smooth. He was great to work with, always responding in a timely manner. I would definitely use and recommend Michael for any future document needs of this type.

Prompt, affordable, and a pleasure to work with
I needed to have some real estate legal work done as quickly as possible. I inquired online with Michael Fleishman on a Friday and was pleased with his quote. I hired him and managed to get everything I needed to have done and two items recorded by the following Tuesday, one of which I wasn’t aware I even needed. This can only happen with somebody who is competent as well as extremely prompt. Everything was handled via email, which worked great for me. It was a pleasure to work with this lawyer.

Competent and Incredible Client Advocate
Mr. Fleishman was contracted by our family to represent us in a contract dispute against a major corporate entity. He was respectful, thorough and gave us realistic expectations. He guided us through the process in a professional and timely manner with favorable and equitable results.

Fantastic Help with Tax Lien Foreclosure
Michael was simply excellent with his assistance. As another lawyer, I know what great service and strong expertise look like. Michael demonstrated both. He handled the entire matter efficiently and kept me informed along the way. I recommend him highly!

An excellent tax lien and property lawyer
I am a former General Counsel of a large Company and when I had a complex tax lien foreclosure matter, I turned to Michael Fleishman. Mike is a tax lien and property expert, but when litigation was required, Mike also demonstrated his superior litigation skills. Mike is incredibly knowledgeable, smart, and skilled. He was also very good in a special problem he had, which was to manage me as an attorney client who had opinions about how the case should be handled. He was gracious to let me partner with him to obtain a great result. I highly recommend Mike!

Quick Transaction - Efficiently handled
While I do live in Florida, I know the Tucson area quite well as my parents retired there in the late 90s and I have visited them often since then. I contacted Michael primarily because of his office address, but am glad I did find him as he competently and promptly handled a property transaction for our family. Fast, fair, and well done.

Michael is a professional!
Our Homeowner Association engaged Michael to prepare a Deed on a piece of property our association was transfering to a resident. Michael was very responsive, easy to work with and was clear on what his needs were to complete the transaction. We intend on using Michael going forward for our Association legal needs.

Personal guarantee on lease
Michael assisted me with an unfavorable situation and got me the best outcome I could hope for. I hired him because in the initial consultation he was patient, understanding and answered all my questions. He was up front with his billing rate which I think is very fair.

Real Estate
I contacted Mr Fleishman just for a consultation regarding a Real Estate matter, he listened to me very carefully and understood my case immediately and gave me all the economic facilities that it were on his hands to start working with him about my case. My case was resolved in few months, He is so professional in every way, so gentle and so kind. He was very prompt and in constant communication with me during my case with him. So I do highly and definitely recommend him to help anyone because like I said He is very professional, a trustful and honest person and very kind. One point that I do want to mention too is that I was so happy and impressed the way that he approached always the opposite party in my case, so professional and so effective! I felt so proud of him representing me and I thank God for placing a honest person in my way to get my problem done and successfully. So God bless him in every way. Thank you sooo much Michael Fleishman

Mr. Fleishman Does What He Promises
It's so refreshing nowadays when a professional follows through on what they promise. I am new to Tucson and I have spent the last year curating the professionals (plumbers, medical specialists, mechanics, a lawyer) I need in my life's orbit to ensure the fewest complications and smoothest transitions in my life. I am so happy that I was referred to Mr. Fleishman and his expeditious nature and highly communicative skills made working with a lawyer a pleasure...what's the world coming to!

Wonderful service
I had consulted with Michael about a future transaction dealing with transfer of real estate to a family member. He was very helpful and clear about what my options were. It so happened that within a month, I needed his services for another small real estate matter. He was very responsive and handled the matter very promptly.

What a Pleasure!
I don't involve attorneys unless a bigger problem could arise if I didn't. So, when my mortgage company would not budge after I fell behind in payments during CoVid, anxiety was already high by the time I contacted Mr. Fleishman, and my expections were low for resolution. But it was such a pleasure working with him! His knowledge and experience, combined with the right industry connections to make things happen right away that I couldn't do on my own, put me at ease right away. Nothing I asked seemed to be an imposition on his time, and he took initiative to prevent potential issues that I couldn't forsee. I would highly recommend having Mr. Fleishman on your side. He not only knows his business, but he's personable and a gentleman.

Excellent Leadership
We found Michael through another attorney we had worked with in the past. Michael proved to be an excellent choice to resolve a contentious real estate issue to a successful resolution for us. He is very professional, knowledgeable, responsive and excellent to work with. We strongly recommend him should you need any real estate problem resolved.

Stellar Service Provided with Tax Lien Real Estate Process
Michael Fleishman was fantastic! He took all of the stress off of our plate with the piece of real estate that we acquired through the tax lien process. He knows the process inside and out. His pricing is very reasonable, and he kept us informed every step of the way. I highly recommend working with Michael on any of your real estate legal needs.

Honest and integrous
I hired Michael Fleishman on recommendation of a friend for assistance with the acquisition of my company by another entity. Michael had an attention to detail and my best at heart at every turn. I negotiate contracts for a living but these sorts of contracts are not my wheelhouse. He caught things that I didn't and also let me walk this experience out based on my faith as a follower of Christ. Later I found that he also is a follower of Christ, so no doubt that he was/is a God-send in my time of need. Thank you to Michael for all the assistance and with his understanding in some of the decision making on my part. Much of it wouldn't make sense to anyone but another follower of Christ. He was definitely the one for the job. He comes highly recommended!
