    I have co-counseled with Mike on two separate matters. Both times, I was thoroughly impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding of the law, his exceptional judgment, and his ability to win opposing counsel to our side. As an out-of-town guy showing up in Charleston, I had a huge advantage with Mike on my side. Will gladly take any opportunity to work with him again.
