Mike, Awesome! That’s right up there with some of the best news I could have for a Christmas season full of peace! I can’t express enough my sincere thanks for your diligent attention to my case.

Attorney Ablan was engaged in my Legal case and didn’t ignore any questions and/or e-mails that I had. He seemed to be honest and straight forward with his legal advice and was willing to listen to any concerns that I had as well. His billing process was fair and I did not receive any unexpected charges. I was impressed with his outspokenness in the court room and he seemed to have the respect from his peers, including the other Attorneys & the Judge. I would recommend Attorney Ablan and I would utilize his services again, thank you. -Thomas

I had the opportunity to work with Mike on a complicated case. He kept my family informed of the progress as the case moved forward. He was always easy to get in touch with and never made me feel as though he didn’t have time to answer my questions. I highly recommend Mike Ablan!  -Justin

When in reference to the Ablan law firm, three words come to mind. Professionalism, humanity and understanding. Michael and his staff are EXTREMELY knowledgeable in all aspects of the law. My wife and I found that they are always accessible and gave us a tremendous sense of confidence. Michael is very easy to speak with,very down to earth, yet tough enough to get the job done. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone and he will be the first person I call for any further needs.  -Mark

Letters from the IRS are never fun. When you receive one you need someone to be your advocate. I selected Michael Ablan and it was an inspired decision. Michael was experienced, knowledgeable and a great communicator. Together we made a great team. Ultimately, I had a better outcome than I had expected. I highly recommend him. -Eric

Have hired Michael C Ablan twice for two different situations. Both times he did an excellent job for my husband and myself. As I rated him above have complete faith in his knowledge of the subject he was representing me in. Kept me informed generally by emailing or when necessary he called me for clarification. The work he did for me was timely. If the situation arises again where we need a lawyer will contact him. He was fair in the fees he charged.
Thank you Michael! – Chris

Michael has been my attorney for the past 10 years and has helped me through many legal issues. We first met in 2004. My business was in trouble and he help me through a bankcruptcy proceeding. Following that, he took care of all the necessary paperwork and registrations for the formation of a new LLC. He has represented my business and myself in matters ranging from collections on contractors debts, lien filing, IRS audits, offers in compromise, etc. In every case, he has been straight forward, knowledgeable and his results have been great. I would not hesitate in the least recommending Michael for any legal matter. -Brent

I’ve known Mike Ablan for over 35 years. My original contact with him was as legal counsel for the real estate brokerage, developer, builder that I worked for. Mike was great on the little legal nuances that were important to the advice and counsel that we looked to him for. He also provided us excellent guidance on strategic and negotiation issues that contributed to our success. He was fair in his billing and charges and his invoices provided an adequate level of detail so we could clearly see what we were being paid for. Over the years I’ve seen Mike provide good legal advice to his clients. -Dick

I have sought Michael’s advice and guidance on numerous occasions. His overall legal knowledge is impressive and he is one of the most trusted persons I have in my contacts list. Michael will always be my first call for business, estate planning, employment, civil, or criminal law (I hope never criminal). He is a straight forward attorney who will tell you exactly what is going on and exactly what will happen given the choices you have. -Nathan


Mr. Ablan is an extremely capable attorney. He is representing me in two separate car accident cases. Even though these cases intertwine and are very complicated, his tenacity in resolving these suits in my favor is exemplary. His compassion to my medical issues gives rise to his “bull dog” determination to ensure that he uses all of his legal expertise to represent me and bring these cases to a close with a favorable decision. I am so grateful to be represented by someone who is so willing to tackle any adversity and fight for their client. -Cheryl


Attny Michael Ablan has helped our family and our company with estate and tax planning. He easily handled our complicated situation! -Melissa


When I needed to seek legal services I had called attorney Ablan to help me with my case. Mike made the process less stressful and made the transition go smooth so it was not overwhelming. I had not needed any legal services in the past so I was appreciative of the diligent work Mike had put into my case. Attorney Ablan comes highly recommended! -client


Michael Ablan helped my wife and I with legal representation when we were faced with an unsuccessful IRS tax audit on two separate occasions. In both cases, Mr. Ablan took over the necessary work to represent us in an appeal of those IRS audits. He was professional, knowledgeable, and timely in his interaction with the IRS Appeals Officer. He thoroughly questioned us to make sure we had a case, and then assertively researched the facts behind our particular situation, which involved claiming tax deductions for an artist operating as a business. All through the process, Mr. Ablan, knowing that this was very stressful for us, was calming and reassuring, yet honest, with us. At the same time, he was respectful to the IRS Appeals Officer and the IRS generally. In the end, Mr. Ablan knew how to win these cases and he did. The process, although difficult to endure, was made easier by Mr. Ablan’s expertise and professionalism. His representation of our case saved us thousands. -Michael

We were well represented in our case by Mr. Ablan and his firm. It really was an honor to do business with him and his staff. They were very much in tune with our concerns and always took the time to either talk with us personally or on the phone in a very polite and considerate manner. We couldn’t have been treated more courteously in such an effective and professional way. Our questions were always answered and continued progress was told keeping us informed. Everything was so well done as they represented us fairly, honestly and in a way that made us feel we were so well represented by someone so confident in what he does. We would so highly recommend this firm to anyone. We would also definitely have this firm represent us if the need arises again.

We felt the costs were also fair and reasonable. We certainty couldn’t have had the outcome we did without Mr. Michael Ablan’s help. He worked very hard representing us (the little guy) and we are so grateful. He definitely deserved the money but his concern, compassion and caring gave us more than what money could even buy.

If anybody would need a recommendation for a good lawyer Mr. Ablan would be the one. I would recommend him to anyone as he treats you like you’re family. Any person would be very well represented not only as a caring individual but also because of his well looked into knowledge of the case with the accurate information.

To us Mr. Ablan is one of a kind who represents his clients exceptionally well at the trial too. We were so proud of all that he did for us. We can’t thank him enough. He should be commended for the job he does so well. He was appreciated for all he did.
