Michael King is an outstanding lawyer. He is an expert in the field of insurance law and personal injury legal matters. I worked with him on many crucial insurance matters in which he represented major insurance companies who had retained my service. He is a lawyer's lawyer.
Michael's expertise in employment and labor law is expansive. He successfully represented me in an employment racial discrimination lawsuit. I am cognizant of other lawsuits in which his clients were awarded million dollar settlements and verdicts.
He presents an immaculate personal appearance. His urbane courtroom demeanor is strikingly effective. He is always well-prepared and his confidence and competence literally fill the courtroom. I highly recommend him without reservations.

Michael P. King and Samuel J. Wells represented me in a racial discrimination matter several years ago. At the time I was working as general laborer for a huge, nationally known construction contractor which focuses on government projects. I was continually call racial epithet and when work was slow, the African-Americans were the first to be laid off and the last to be re-hired because of their race.
I eventually wanted to see a lawyer about my situation. I was recommended to Mr. King and Co-Counsel Samul J. Wells by a very prominent Los Angeles lawyer. They took on my case and vigorously fought a very tough battle on my behalf. Right before the trial the defendant, settled my case for 1.8 million. If it weren’t for these fime lawyers, I don’t know what would happened to me. He is bright man and cares for his clients. I would recommend Mr. King without any hesitation. The world could use more lawyers like him.
