I felt comfortable asking him questions and he kept me informed every step of the way. If you’re looking for a smooth divorce experience, Mike’s your guy.
My wife and I consulted with Mike to update our will and to do some additional legal work for our family. He and his assistant, Phoebe, were a delight to work with. He did excellent work and was cost effective in doing so. We ended up with very good results for the work that needed to be done. We highly recommend Mike and his team if you need legal work done. It was a delight to work with him. — J.L.
Mike was very helpful in educating us on the difference between a will and a trust. And which one would be the best fit for our needs. We were very happy with the final result and we have and will continue to recommend Mike to our friends and family.
I had a very thorough custody battle and Mike was there every step of the way. He was able to give me guidance and advice in the toughest situations. I always felt like I could trust Mike.
