Like most people when I found myself looking for representation I was concerned about spending lots of money for someone that would simply go through the motions. From our first meeting Michael was a straight shooter, no promises of unrealistic goals but rather assurance that he would do everything in his power to represent me the best he could. As the weeks went by I started to have buyers remorse mostly because I was unfamiliar with how long the process can take. It wasn't until the day of the hearing that I got to see exactly what I had paid for. Michael's arguments were well thought out and strategically executed as if he was playing a game of chess. Needless to say the day ended in dismissal. Even after the dismissal I was impressed with the level of commitment Michael showed with aspects I thought I would have to deal with on my own. It's hard to find people these days with real follow-through, Michael clearly has it. In case its not obvious based on my review I HIGHLY recommend Michael Kraut.
