Mike and his team worked tirelessly on my case. My wife and I were involved in a hostile takeover of our family business by none other than my parents. Mike has shown he can turn on a dime in the courtroom and portray our side of the story with conviction.
Mike is passionate about what he does and often would respond to emails in the wee hours of the morning. Mike and his team aren't cheap but they are absolutely worth it.
We originally hired an independent attorney who really let us down and cost us thousands of dollars and...nearly our business. After we hired Mike and Melody at Stamper Rubens we knew immediately we were in good hands. Mike did a perfect job of stating our case and defending us from many baseless accusations and bullying from opposing council. I'm very glad we found him and his team and highly recommend him.

Mike has periodically come to my company to lead training sessions to ensure that we do not have discrimination or a discriminatory atmosphere in the work place. We have done this proactively because this is the type of company we want to have.
Mike did an excellent job in leading sessions which were attending by every member of the team. Mike's training has helped us successfully implement a "no tolerance" policy for harrassment in the work place. As a result, we have kept the company and our team safe.

Michael is the oposite of every bad stereotype of attorneys. We use him when ever there is a hint of any legal exposure. I work with many attorneys in my career as a CPA so I have experienced the full spectrum of these ratings. Michael almost won't let you persue a case you have little chance of winning. He listens and is responsive. I can tell you that I am cheap and like most people don't like to pay legal fees. But, I have never received a bill from Michael or for that matter any attorney in that firm that I didn't think was well worth the price.
