"I feel extremely fortunate to have met Mike and even more so to have been represented by him in a complex disability lawsuit. He took my case on knowing it was an uphill battle, but his strategic approach, legal acumen, excellent communication skills and overall tenacity brought my case to a close with a best case scenario ending. Mike took complete ownership of my circumstances and really took a personal interest in getting a positive outcome for me. I firmly believe that Mike was the X factor that allowed my case to come to a positive close and I don't think any other lawyer would have achieved the same results. Mike saved my career and I am eternally grateful for that. I would jump at the chance to hire him again."
-R. M., Nursing Student
"Mike represented AtPac, Inc. in a federal breach of contract and trade secret case that was critical to our success as a company.

-Wayne A. Long, President/CEO, AtPac, Inc.
“I had the good fortune of working with Mike Schaps for almost two years on a complex litigation matter. Mike was part of an outside counsel team providing client representation in a high-stakes patent lawsuit involving my company. Mike possesses a rare combination of exemplary advocacy skills along with an ability to provide practical and candid legal advice. His case analysis is outstanding, and he is an excellent writer and oral communicator. I would hire Mike again in a heartbeat, and I would seek opportunities to work with him again.”
-Stuart C. Gauffreau, General Counsel, Litéra
"I was referred to Mike when I was facing a complicated and nasty dispute over what to do with a beautiful piece of property that had been in my family for generations. Mike not only figured out how to structure a deal that left everyone satisfied and gave me control over the property, but he negotiated a far better deal for me then I had thought possible. Just as important, he was a constant source of support, wise counsel, and strength throughout the process. I am deeply grateful for Mike's help, will always value his friendship, and am honored to recommend him."
-Ziska Baum, Property Owner
"During the most difficult time of my life, Mike got me a reasonable settlement from the most unreasonable of people."
-Chris DeLauder, Property Owner
"Thank you again for all your excellent service on my SPB case. You did what I couldn't with your request for reconsideration. They listened when you stated it in legal jargon. This goes to show it is a necessity to have an attorney backing you when you go into a legal battle. And I had so much to win with this one. AND I WON, THANKS TO YOUR HELP!!!"
-April Lemstrom, State Employee
We were extremely grateful to have Mike represent us during a dispute. Mike was professional and courteous throughout the entire process. He thoughtfully explained all our options and described the process well. The legal brief he prepared for us was far superior to the opposing counsel's. It was thorough, well written and he presented strong arguments. During our mediation, we were very impressed with his exceptional negotiation skills. Overall, Mike is an excellent attorney to have on your side.
