Sole Practitioner and Mediator, St. Louis

"Mike is the consummate lawyer – a trusted advisor, legal scholar, and an advocate possessing written and oral advocacy skills that are unsurpassed. But his other qualities make him exceptional as an ethics lawyer. No matter what the client's situation, Mike has the unique ability to listen without being judgmental, perhaps because he has seen and heard it all, and then to develop a proactive path forward. He is also always willing to consider alternative practice models, without rejecting new or novel approaches out right, and because he is knowledgeable about the 'business' of lawyering, he is often able to find similar successful models in other jurisdictions."
