"My experience with Mike has been excellent. Mike really made me feel like I was his only client when I know that's not the case. He was always easy to get in touch with and on top of every detail. After my dispute was settled, I retained him as legal counsel and plan to continue our relationship. Mike is #1 in my book and I highly recommend him."

"I hired Michael to represent my wife and I during a real estate purchase. But he ended up doing so much more than merely reviewing documents. He advised us on financing and how to get some important documents through the local recorder of deeds quickly. In numerous ways, Michael went above and beyond to ensure we had a timely and smooth closing, making himself available as much as we needed. We were extremely pleased and appreciative of his guidance, and strongly recommend his services."
