"Extremely knowledgable, professional and considerate. Michael helped me understand what I needed to do to get my business up and running and how to protect myself and my company. He explained everything in a way that was simple and easy for me to understand; he was always careful to ensure we were on the same page and that I was comfortable with his direction. He understood my mission and went above and beyond to help me lay solid groundwork for my business. He was incredibly patient with all my questions and ultimately gave complete peace of mind that all bases were covered and I could confidently move forward when ready."
