I hired Mr. Owens to help me prepare my case for an unemployment benefits appeal hearing. His input was invaluable in helping me put together a very solid and concise case to prove my side of the story. He was clearly an expert in the state employment code, and pointed me to the most important and relevant statutes to my case therein. He also showed that he really cared about me and the results of my case, and was conscientious about follow-up. I would highly recommend Mike Owens to anyone in need of an employment attorney.

Mike was a fantastic resource to have in my corner! With his skillful representation, I was able to obtain a positive result that I would have had no chance of reaching otherwise.
Mike is sharp-minded, very ethical, and personable. He made me feel validated and supported, with an honest and realistic approach to explaining how the law views the issues. He never pushed me toward a particular decision, but rather made sure that I completely understood all of my options at all times, and provided his best recommendations so that I could decide myself.
Mike truly cares about fighting for the best possible outcome for each individual, whatever that takes. His fee structure is fair, and made representation accessible to me. I can't thank him enough for his help! Thank you, Mike!!!

I felt Mr. Owens was always up front and honest about my case and the legal process. I felt Mr. Owens was very skilled in his knowledge about employment law. I believe Mike has a lot of passion for what he does and when working with him I trusted his judgement and ethics.
