TESTIMONIALS

  • “Michael did work for us while I was CEO at Guided Therapeutics and after spending literally millions on patent work, I have to say that Michael is one of the best IP attorneys that I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him. Almost any attorney can get a patent issued, however the real trick is to get a patent issued that has real value and can stand against litigation. Michael is also especially knowledgeable in foreign IP rights and is very cost effective.”

    -Mark Samuels, CEO, Guided Therapeutics, medical device manufacturer

  • "I am an employee of a large bank and responsible for a complex commercial real estate portfolio of problem loans and special assets.  I find Erich to be a most valuable resource and team member.  Erich is totally engaged in evaluating the bank's position related to the debt obligation(s), the collateral securing the debt and, when possible, offering alternative solutions that oftentimes lead to enhanced resolutions benefiting both the customer and the bank.  His proactive problem identification, problem prevention and problem solving skills make him my "go to" legal counsel."
