"Michael does excellent work. He filled our needs perfectly. As a small business, its difficult to find a good attorney to give the time and service we need without charging fees like we are a large company. Michael was thorough, answered loads of questions and had superb patience in guiding us through our sale of our business. We will be using him again."

"Michael was absolutely wonderful to work with. He's the first attorney I ever worked with that had a great personality to match his service ;-) His response time was superb. His knowledge for the sale of our small business was spot on and exactly what we needed. Even though we are not a large business, he treated us as though our business mattered--something we have not found in an attorney prior to this. I highly recommend Michael. He goes above and beyond!"
