Michael is a music fan — from country to classical — and when he’s not playing chess or Scrabble with his family, you can usually find him cheering for his beloved Buckeyes.

“I met Michael 35 years ago when my daughter gave me his name to help me with some paperwork. So when I had a lawsuit I went back to him, because I trust him 100%. If I’m working with someone else in the office, Michael will come to the door and say hi, ask how I’m doing and acknowledge that I’m there. They ask how you feel and ask about your family and make you feel comfortable.”
