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.

For more than 25 years, Michael has been my personal and business attorney. Recently, Michael identified the critical issues in a very unique land use development/re-zoning project and then crafted a very detailed contract which completely protected my interests.

Michael handles all of my legal affairs, from drafting celebrity endorsement, broadcast and design contracts, to protecting my intellectual property rights. He especially shines when dealing with my many “unusual” situations. He is able to quickly grasp the facts and explain the legal issues involved in a clear and concise fashion.

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.
