I have known Mike Riling professionally and personally since 1994. We regularly discuss ethics and other legal issues, many times once a week. I have also referred clients to him and his firm, over the years, for legal assistance. Mike Riling deserves an AV rating.

I haven't had a case with Mr. Riling for over 10 years, and am therefore hesitant to provide any more information than I've given. I know that he enjoys a very good reputation in Lawrence.
