I tend to operate at 1,000 miles per hour and Michael somehow manages to keep up with me. I have never seen him lose his cool or his focus. His personalized involvement and caring is extremely refreshing and allows me the freedom to devote my energies to the creative aspects of my businesses.

Jack and Harry transcend the typical definition of what an attorney does. They have an eloquent way of stating the facts and solutions; it is almost like poetry. I’ve worked with both and relied on their expertise to get the job done. They are never reluctant to state their professional opinion on what is best for a client. The attorneys at KB&G are truly a great combination of both business and personal attorneys.

I was recommended to Michael by a partner at a large firm who realized that my then start-up company could not afford that firm’s fees. At KB&G I receive the expertise of a large firm delivered with a sensitivity to the realities of my budget. Michael helps guide me through the minefields that face young entrepreneurs.

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.
