Some time ago, I found myself enmeshed in a seemingly intractable dispute with an established law firm over fees for work that firm did on a real estate matter. Michael was able to thread his way through the problem, reset the negotiation, and come up with a solution that was considerably in my favor. Moreover, he accomplished it expeditiously and efficiently, at a reasonable cost. Having worked at a large prestigious firm as well as on a more personal scale, Michael brings a wealth of experience to the table, along with commendable integrity, good will, and a welcome store of life’s wisdom. I can recommend him without reservation.
I was referred to Michael Krival by a friend regarding a real estate matter concerning my house. I was very pleased with the outcome. He was extremely professional and kept me informed of matters as they progressed through the legal system. I was worried during the case, but he kept reassuring things would turn out fine. And Michael was right as the judgment was in my favor thanks to his efforts and skill. I would not hesitate to use his services again and would recommend him highly to family or friends.
In the days immediately following our terrible car accident, my Mom and I were both mostly just dealing with the shock and pain of our disabling injuries. It wasn’t a priority to worry about who caused the crash or how we’d pay for everything. But we soon realized we were facing months, maybe years, of recovery, and I knew we needed help even knowing where to start. Michael took our case and immediately made it possible for us to focus on getting well. He handled all of the communication with the insurance companies, he took the time to explain everything to us at each step, and he gave us clear expectations and then met them. It was simply wonderful how much pressure he took off of us. Then, in a very reasonable amount of time Michael negotiated a very good monetary settlement for both me and my Mom, money that meant a lot to us. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask him for help again, or to recommend him to a friend dealing with the aftermath of an accident or other difficult situation.
In Michael Krival, I found an aggressive professional willing to fight for me. He arranged everything I needed to get my case going and knew all the right doctors to help me out. When I needed him, he was there for me. We settled for far money more than I could dealing with the insurance company myself. If you’ve been in an accident, Michael Krival is the man you need to call. I consider Mike a close friend now. Thanks again Michael, I couldn’t have done it without you.
I have referred a number of clients, both business and personal injury, to Michael over the last several years and they have always been taken care of really well by him. The people I have referred to him have called me back with really high praise for the efforts Michael has made on their behalf’s. His work is first rate, and he gets great results for his clients. I recommend him highly and without hesitation.
Michael has been my personal lawyer for many years and will remain so. He also provided wise and cost-effective counsel throughout my years as Director of Solar Energy International and handled numerous legal matters for that ground-breaking company involving business law, real estate, employment and construction issues. To his great credit and the benefit of the firm, Michael made a conscientious effort to learn about the special needs of our organization. Michael’s keen sensitivity, gifted communication skills and attention to detail, make him my very special and trusted legal advisor.
I have known Michael for over thirty years and have referred a number of people to him. He has always done a great job and the people I have referred to him have always called to thank me for the referral. He listens, is attentive and gives excellent advice. He is a fine lawyer and gets great results for his clients. I recommend him highly.
Mike Krival has been my attorney for 10+ years and has never let me down. What I appreciate most is that he’s thorough when explaining potential cost to me versus my vulnerability in a situation. He never tries to needlessly pile up hour after hour, and does make sure I understand all my options. His negotiating tactics have produced favorable results and his contracts have protected me time and time again. If you value thoughtful counsel, you will value having Mike represent your interests.
I have worked with and known Michael for many years. I have always found him to be an astute and diligent lawyer who understands the legal process in a way that benefits his clients by a proper approach to a strategic plan and execution of that strategy to maximize results with minimum costs, a rare quality indeed.
Michael Krival, Esq. is an experienced and practical attorney who I entrust with many client referrals and from whom I routinely solicit advice in my own dealings. He has a comprehensive understanding of the law, a keen business acumen as well as intuitive social skills, which he uses to position his clients for success in both adversarial and contract negotiations. Michael is the legal expert you want to assist with your strategic business planning, risk management and advocacy in or out of the courtroom. His integrity and passion for protecting his clients is admirable and it is a welcome bonus that he is so affable and good natured. Michael is a tough advocate, but a pleasure to know…which is why I don’t hesitate to recommend him time and time again.
Michael is an extraordinary attorney. His exceptional abilities with contracts and communications have served me extremely well over the years. He is particularly skilled in difficult negotiation. Michael’s personal integrity and commitment to a very high standard of values distinguish him. I highly recommend his engagement in any affair that demands excellent legal advise or action.
Michael was referred to me by another lawyer when the insurance company in my accident case offered me a ridiculously low settlement for my car accident case. When Michael came on board, he immediately sent me out to a several medical specialists and to get an MRI to make sure that I had the best medical care. He thought of medical issues that I hadn’t even considered and once I was aware of them, I knew I hadn’t done enough by myself regarding my medical treatment. As a result, I received excellent care and my injuries healed faster. When Michael was sure that I was feeling good, he then went after a settlement. He fought long and hard and got me almost double what the insurance company had originally offered me and made sure that I had excellent medical care in the process. I feel my accident case was very successful and it was due to Michael Krival’s compassionate and ‘dog with a bone’ attitude. I would recommend Michael to anyone in an accident case.
Choosing Mike to help me with a complicated start-up corporation was a great decision. He’s personable, professional, and cares about the details.
I have known Mike Krival since law school, and he is one of the most caring and helpful people I have had the pleasure to know, both personally and professionally. He is also an excellent lawyer. I recently asked his assistance on an employment / pension matter for an international client that involved multiple jurisdictions. Mike quickly assessed the key issues, provided the right help for some tricky matters and coordinated everything in a professional way that made the client (and me!) very happy. His fees are reasonable, he is responsive and a delight to work with. You will be glad you gave him a call.
I met Mike Krival about 15 years ago at UCLA while attending a course for Financial Planning. It impressed me that an attorney would take the time and effort in this course of study to help clients with a deeper, more holistic understanding of a client’s needs. Since then I have referred several clients to Mike with varied scenarios and have gotten positive feedback each time. Mike has been an excellent resource for Real Estate and Construction transactions as well as Business matters and I will continue to utilize his expertise for matters arising in the future. Mike has a thoughtful 360 degree approach and is very knowledgeable over a wide range of subjects. I will continue to call on Mr. Krival’s services and would feel very comfortable in recommending him.
