After interviewing several law firms, I selected JLG to handle my divorce. Not only did JLG have the right specialist in family law, they also have a number of other practice areas that often come into play. I quickly learned that I needed to think about estate planning at the same time. There were also tax implications and JLG brought in the right expert. Lastly, we've also had to think about general litigation as not everything falls under the jurisdiction of family court. The other firms I considered needed me to find separate specialists (and of course separate retainers!), for each area.

Couldn't recommend him more highly. Smart, hardworking, practical attorney. Mike solves problems and gets things done. You don't want a rocket scientist that doesn't work or can't get things done. You don't want a hard worker that doesn't have brain power ora business sense. Mike's got all three legs of the stool.

JLG has helped my small business in several matters that threatened my business’ livelihood. I am a small business owner and needed the different areas of legal expertise. In one litigation matter, JLG was able to overturn $60,000 in wrongfully seized funds in both the superior court and appeals court cases. In another matter, JLG was able to secure a $50,000 arbitration award for a breach of contract matter. I have also been able to turn to JLG on other business issues including drafting up contracts, representations for negotiations, and reducing liabilities. For a small business owner like me, JLG’s wide practice has helped me with quality and competent representation on different issues while giving me the attention that I wouldn’t be able to afford at a larger firm. Because Michael is a business owner himself, I know he understands how stressful these situations can be -- not just my business, but on my personal and family life as well. Having JLG in my corner helps me feel more confident as I continue to work on growing my business.
