Client Comments

"Mike's great strength is in combining big law talent with down-to-earth personal relationship skills."

"Mike is simply "the best". There truly is no comparison. He is the most thoroughly respected legal counsel I have ever been associated with in my 33 years in the fire service. He is so respected that both management and labor speak highly of him and enjoy working with him. Again, he is truly "the best"."
