Testimonials

Michael excels in navigating the grey areas where answers (and sometimes even the questions) are not clear. Michael is much more than just our attorney - he is a highly valued advisor and confidante.

Brian Gold
Owner and President, Sultana Distribution Services Inc.

I brought Harry in as General Counsel for several packaging companies which I ran or for which I consulted. He is my lawyer of choice. Harry not only is the preeminent deal lawyer I know, he is a business expert. He is the best business advisor I have in the world.

Jack B. Wielar
Business Consultant (Formerly: DuPont Separation Systems, Georgia Pacific, Norel Paper Company)

Harry understands business issues, not just the legal side of business. And whenever I call him, I get a response right away. If a contract needs to be written, it happens. That day.

Christian W. Breitweiser

Michael Kent has been the lawyer for my literary agency for over a decade. He has always been very supportive and has been an excellent guide on all aspects of the law. I would highly recommend Kent, Beatty & Gordon for any and all legal matters.

Barbara Lowenstein
CEO, Lowenstein Associates, Inc.

In addition to being one of the smartest individuals I know, Jack is extremely good at what he does. He has a terrific capacity to listen to my explanation of a business problem, process it and rephrase it, displaying an acute comprehension of the issue or problem. I’m very happy with all the legal work he and his firm do for my company.
