Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists, P.C.

"I have worked with Michele now for 15 years as the health care market in Connecticut has changed and evolved. Michele has kept ahead of the knowledge curve with the many tangents that have presented themselves and I continue to be pleased that Michele is in my corner. Her knowledge of the health care business environment and how that intersects with the law have positioned my company favorably. Michele takes the time to understand the issues, not just react to them, which separates and differentiates her from other lawyers I have worked with in this area. She is genuinely a unique individual and brings her passion, knowledge, experience, and compassion to her work on a regular basis. My company and I are better off for having a professional relationship with her."
