Testimonials

Nicole, We found no inaccuracies in either document. We are very impressed with the depth of research evidenced by the thoroughness of both documents and thankful that you are on our side. Thanks
Effective Research
Matt- I finally got around to reading the case summaries {Daily Report}. While these were older claims, my understanding is that to try 4 claims in one year would be a lot; much less to have done so within 3 months. I note the high/low agreement as to the pedestrian claim. Very impressive!
Client
Mike is an excellent attorney and I would have no problem recommending him. From the day we met him to the last days of our homeowners meeting, Mike was always on top of this case. He always supplied us with valued legal opinions and always made the right decisions. For me, I really enjoyed the time spent with Mike throughout all the depositions and the way he worked the witnesses in getting to the bottom line. He was impressive. There is not one doubt in my mind, that if we did not have Mike on our side, the conclusion of this case would not have been as it is. We have a conclusion we are happy with and Mike is on main reason for that.

Your intellect, drive and work ethic are unsurpassed. The article in the FCDR is terrific. You can't buy publicity like that.
