""I worked with Mike at Telephia and found him to be insightful and constructive. Legal issues aren't always the easiest for us non-lawyers to understand but Mike did an excellent job of explaining the legal issues and, more importantly, identifying positive actions that could be taken for company's benefit. AND, just as important, Mike was a great guy to have around. I enjoyed working with him." Brian Saunders, Social Media Expert"
