Mike Logan has been my go-to for help with legal issues for more than 25 years. I appreciate his practical approach to litigation – he’s kept us out of the courtroom several times when mediation was what we really needed to settle a dispute.
Mike is tough when he needs to be, and he never gives in, especially when I’m out on a limb. He always represents my interests very well, and he does it in a measured and reasonable way. The main thing is that I trust Mike. He’s a really good guy and I have a lot of respect for him.

Mike Logan helps me make the most economical decision in every case. When he is representing my company, he knows which cases to settle, which ones to take to mediation, and which cases absolutely need to go to trial. In court, Mike is calm but firm and he always seems to have the upper hand. His wisdom, experience and practical approach has saved my company hundreds of thousands of dollars. I have a finance background, so I like to say, “Numbers don’t lie, and neither does Mike Logan.
Mike has broad experience across many industries and I’ve referred him to many other risk professionals. He is honest, fair, and I would stake my own reputation on my recommendation to use Mike and his law firm.
