I've never met a lawyer who is more effective than Michael at drilling down into an ERISA problem and plucking out the solution. He is especially good at the disability-insurance cases, both ERISA and non-ERISA. I can remember once, he and I were co-counseling a case. We were at a settlement conference. The judge came out and commended him by name for his good skill. I like interacting with Michael about these disability-insurance cases because he's such a problem-solver. I learn from him.

I had the most unfortunate experience of having to retain seven attorneys in the past two years. Michael stands so far out above the rest. Very simply: He was almost always available and returned phone calls quickly; he always spoke to me with respect; he was truly an advocate when I was in a fragile condition and greatly needed one. He was protective and shielded me from an abusive insurance company. Although these might seem like simple things one would expect only Mr. Quiat provided them
