Testimonials

Harry and I worked out a very complex and challenging technological agreement on behalf of Seagram and DuPont with a reluctant third party venturer. Despite the strong potential for conflicts of interest and several seeming stalemates, Harry made it work, and work well.

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

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.

When Jack took on my wrongful termination case, he immediately understood the value of my employment agreement because he writes them himself. He was exactly what I needed in a lawyer. He stood up to a large technology corporation and got me everything I was owed.

Josh Segal

Being an attorney, I can tell you that there are many firms that can analyze the legal positions but few that can utilize that knowledge and bring about an extremely positive result for the client, which KB&G has done in its representation of us.

Thomas J. Cannon, III, Esq.

Whether a real estate transaction or a new marketing venture, I rely upon Michael for his amazing contract writing skills and his sound advice which always emphasizes a results-oriented, pragmatic approach.
