  • Christopher L Gaspard

    Mike is an incredibly talented lawyer. I worked with him on several cases at my previous law firm and have had the opportunity to watch him successfully argue cases in court on multiple occasions. I still frequently contact him to discuss complex legal issues. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone seeking skilled legal representation.
