Michael is a very experienced litigator, deeply rooted in ethics, who is both effective and respected. I would have him represent me if I were to need a lawyer in his fields of expertise.

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.
