Reviews of Michael Drose from Martindale Hubble

  • I would want him as my attorney if I needed his type of legal services.
  • Michael Drose is an excellent attorney with the highest ethical standards. He is a credit to the profession and should certainly have an A rating.
  • Outstanding attorney in his field
  • Michael is known throughout the local community as a lawyer of skill, with high ethics, and posessing a unique ability to counsel clients thorugh the very difficult area of bankruptcy. I have personally referred many clients to Michael — all have been thoroughly pleased.
  • Though Michael and I are always on opposing sides of the matter, it is always a pleasure. Too few attorneys take 100% responsibility, are honest, accessible, pragmatic, respectful and humble. Whatever we can do to encourage more attorneys to be like Michael Drose, we should do….100% respect and admiration.
