Mr. Fate was careful and deliberate and even meticulous in the work he did for me. I felt I was getting good advice and felt supported in what he asked me to do. He listened well and answered all my questions.

I needed legal advice on a consumer right of rescission situation and searched for the answer online. I posed the question on Avvo.com, and Michael Fate was the only lawyer to call me. Though my case, in his opinion, would not succeed, he spent 15 minutes on the phone with me to explain and talk through all scenarios. Excellent service!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Mr. Fate and I worked together on a Revocable Trust issue that involved Washington and California issues. I found his thoroughness, creativity, knowledge of the law, and practical advice to be profoundly helpful. Working together, we were able to obtain the relief that our client sought. I will not hesitate to refer any client needing a California attorney to Mr. Fate. You may retain him with the confidence that you are getting quality representation.
