    I have known Michael for several years, during which time we were adversaries in a difficult, emotionally charged litigation in which he represented the plaintiffs; and I represented one of several defendants.He is a knowledgeable and energetic adversary incisive and practical. Beyond those attributes, I have found that Michael invariably conducts himself as a gentleman whose word is his bond. In my view, Michael exemplifies all that to which members of the bar ought to aspire.
