Great Lawyer
Mike put together a living trust for me and my family. He put a lot of effort into making sure our estate plan was personalized and correct. His personal touch was much appreciated. I would refer him to any friend who was looking to get a trust.

Great Lawyer, great guy
Michael has helped me both personally with a trust as well as in debt collection for my business. He returned my calls, answered questions and did a great job with both. Frankly, I thought I would pay a lot more as well. Highly recommended.
