"Mike was a great advocate for 'fact-based' decision making. Working in a large corporate role many times we heard about deals last minute and decisions being made from the heart, Mike kept our team on track with this approach. A hard quality to find."

"We had a problem with my sister who was handling the estate of my father. I hired Michael to assist my sibling and I with this issue. I could not believe how quickly and professionally Mike was able to get a dispute that had been going on for better than 8 months. I was a bit apprehensive about seeking legal help based on some past experiences but Mike really helped me to see the importance of having legal help. He was a great help and i will be using him in the future for all of my legal needs."
