Michael provided such amazing help to me in two very different situations. First I was given an absurd ticket for biking on the sidewalk (in an area with no bike lanes and tons of traffic) and he went to court for me and dealt with it. Second, when my partner was in a very bad accident (hit by a car while walking) he provided help immediately, coming to the hospital and guiding us in the arduous process of filing the paperwork to settle with the driver of the vehicle. Michael is so kind, efficient, professional and creative! Grateful for the work he does.
Annie M. Hired by Michael P. Kushner
Michael is very knowledgeable as well as stern, his dedication to my case protected: my good name and my assets all while keeping me informed and relaxed. I have recommended Blanch Law to Associates already and will continue to do so in the future.
