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.

Communication with Michael Kushner is what kept customer service very high. Our contact required late hours due to the nature of the circumstances. I was skeptical on the services in the beginning because I was thinking who would make time for clients during midnight hours and then make themselves available the following morning during early business hours. To my surprise my perception changed after seeing how Michael Kushner was available to answer questions and deliver vital information which brought peace of mind during the difficult situation. Today I give much respect to him and the security he provided in delivering great customer service. In would recommend to anyone that seeks quality service. I am truly greatful since receiving service from the Kushner Law Group that exceeded my expectation. Thank you.

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.
