Testimonials

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.

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.

Chuck Apelian
Entrepreneur and Land Use Consultant

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.
