Attorneys

Michael S. Butterfield

Associate

Through my experience as an attorney, I have learned that disputes revolve around a difference of opinion, facts, or a combination of both—there are always two sides. The successful advocate appreciates the client’s position, but also uses the opponent’s perspective to find the weakness in the opposing case. This approach enables the attorney to find the most compelling and comprehensive means to a favorable resolution. ”
