“I was very impressed with Michael; sensible, calm and the clients warmed to him straight away. A real asset for you guys.”
- “Michael was astounding, calm and re-assuring. He was very knowledgeable, objective and professional in his approach to the job. He knew exactly what he wanted to do and was firm in his determination to get to the root of the matter. I am very proud of him and very glad that he represented me. No doubt, Michael in my opinion as a practicing Christian was divinely picked and brought to the Police Station to interview me and hear me out. I have his complimentary card and I will not hesitate to use your solicitors firm in the future if needed for other issues in a very challenging and constantly evolving world. Michael, you are a blessing. Michael is a reason for me to continue to live a life of love & forgiveness regardless. Love always wins. You are simply good. Keep it up!”
