"Michael has a rare combination of high quality assets for a lawyer. He is knowledgeable, experienced, smart and is also a consummate gentleman at all times. He zealously and aggressively advocates for his clients but never resorts to the abrasive and shrill styles so many people unfortunately associate with lawyers in general. I strongly and unreservedly endorse Michael Thorman."
