Impressive Words From Our Clients

Michael is extremely brilliant about all aspects of corporate law. He was legal counsel for two companies I was employed with and he consistently gives sound advice and guidance. I cannot think of anyone I would recommend more highly than Michael.

Jennifer B.

Michael has represented our company for over a decade. I don’t make recommendations easily, but recommend him without hesitation. I would consider Michael as one of my closest and best business advisers.

Steve L.

Michael has been a legal advisor and counsel to Prakat for over 6 years. Michael is extremely professional and detailed oriented. His legal agreements/contracts are very effective, allowing us the peace of mind that Prakat is running a legally sound business with Michael’s legal guidance. I have personally recommended Michael to a number of friends and business associates. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for business legal services.
