"I have been a client of Mr. Michael Cork for several years.  I sought his legal advice in 2004 at the start-up of my medical corporation.  He served in corporation formation, maintenance, and record-keeping.  His knowledge of the medical bylaws and practice guidelines in our state of Indiana warrant high praise in my opinion.  I am very grateful for his counsel over the years. He has been a vital part of the success of my medical practice."
