    Michael is an exceptional litigator and has effectively handled our court battle to a favorable outcome. I would recommend Michael for any area of business or contract law. Michael will brief clients of all possible outcomes and make recommendations so clients can be aware of possible costs and expected returns for their legal fee investment.
