“My husband and I have been working with Mike for a few months now. We found him because we are a same sex married couple with a child and needed an Estate Attorney familiar with our situation to create a trust. We are so grateful to be working with Mike. He has made this experience so wonderful. He makes us feel like family every time we talk or meet. He has had to make us think and ask us difficult questions. But when he does it is with genuine concern and an open heart. He explains to us why we need to make these decisions and how it will effect us down the road. He talks to us with constant professionalism that guides us in the right direction. It has been our privilege to work with Mike. Thank you so much for everything. We feel our future and the future of our family is in great hands. Thank you for the security we feel in our lives.”
-Erin Grimes, Antioch, California
“My 89 year old mom arrived from Hawaii last month. She was noticeably weaker and more forgetful. When she fell backwards and hit the back of her head, we both knew she needed an estate plan to get her affairs in order. I contacted Mike who had worked with me on the sale of my house in Oakland 10 years ago and asked for recommendation for an estate planning attorney. Mike told me he had opened his estate planning practice. I now live in Roseville. Mike agreed to meet me and my mom half way between my house and his office in Oakland. He spent several hours with us, explaining all the options and choices that my mom could make. My mom was very hesitant about giving any one of her children a power of attorney over her finances. Mike explained the options, their strengths and weaknesses, and created a plan that my mom felt comfortable with. After this first meeting, we had a second meeting, again, Mike meeting us halfway, to discuss the final documents. My mother is happy and we are much more at ease knowing that my mom’s property, her health care decisions and what to do about her finances if she ever becomes disabled, is taken care of. Also, his rates are reasonable.”
-Lisa DiGrazia, Roseville, California.
“My estate is not too complex, but this being my first trust, I had loads of questions. Mike was very attentive and satisfied all my concerns. I was pleased that the trust was assembled in easy-to-understand English. It had minimal mumbo-jumbo legalese like what I found in two trusts that my friends were willing to share with me (and for which I feel they overpaid). The price was very reasonable and I highly recommend him.”
-Sandi Storch, San Leandro, California.

Rare in today’s times where someone goes that extra length for your success and you certainly don’t feel like just a number with Michael.”
-Henry Osaki, Oakland, California.

I would recommend Mike for any business or personal service you may need.”
-Kamal Boushehri, Oakland, California.
“Mike has been representing me in a Workers Compensation lawsuit following the death of my husband. Although this was a very stressful time for me, Mike has been there for me, reassuring me that he would continue to work towards a resolution. He is very knowledgeable of the relevant law and tactics. He has been in constant contact with me throughout the process, and responds to my emails and phone calls promptly. Although I was very anxious about being deposed by the defendants attorneys, his calm professional manner assured me I was in very capable hands. I would highly recommend this hard working, caring professional.”
-Joanne Hardeman, Arroyo Grande, California.

Mike has gone the extra mile to ensure my father’s questions and concerns are addressed and has always done so with a friendly demeanor. Our family highly recommends Mike.”

“As a client of Mike’s, I have always found him accessible and responsive to my requests both for information and for specific legal work. He’s readily approachable, and he always provides the little extras that distinguished his efforts on my behalf.”
-Jim Sutton, Saratoga, California.
“Mr. Broad has been my attorney for over 15 years representing my company AB Trucking on simple contract disputes to complex litigation. Mike is responsible, responsive, honest and will represent you with loyalty, giving you options that he researched and explains a complex matter in terms a business person can understand.”
-Bill Aboudi, Oakland, California.
“The first time meeting Michael was, thankfully, at my home. He came the very day I contacted him. We met for over 3 hours. After thirty minutes we knew we were going to hire the right person for the job. We felt informed, aware, heard, and most importantly in safe hands. My husband after being diagnosed with Mesothelioma had to leave his job of 34 years. Michael was handling Bob’s disability case. Whenever we called or emailed Michael with a question, he got back to us the same day with an answer. When we had to go to court he led us through the process, totally understanding the lost souls we felt we were. He made a very difficult time easier for us. He always went the extra mile for us and our family. It’s funny to realize that very early we felt a kinship with Mike and we forgot he was our lawyer, but at the same time he was always our ‘lawyer’. Thank you, Michael.”
-Lorrie Grimes, Antioch, California

-Mike Lessin, Alameda, California.
“Michael Broad joined our family for a long journey on a workers’ compensation case, sticking with us through every delay and ultimately leading us to a highly commendable settlement. He did this through attention to detail and developing a professional, but very cordial relationship with the employer’s attorney. He was patient at all junctures, and encouraged us to be patient as well. Mike is a very personable attorney who will do everything he can, including showing up on your doorstep, meeting you at a Giants game, whatever it takes, to make things easier for you and your family. He freely consults with others in his wide network of legal colleagues when he needs to do so, and shares his knowledge in timely updates with clients.”
-Sarah R, Yolo County, California.

-Steve Moore, Benicia, California.
“Mike helped us when we needed it the most. He walked us through and helped us save our business through a very challenging and stressful point in our professional lives. By the time we started working with Mike, we had met with several attorneys seeking help and none compared to Mike Broad. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, and is always on top of everything. He continuously made himself available and easy to reach when we needed him. It was comforting to know that we had Mike on our team.”
-Maria T. Branas, Hayward, California.
“I have worked closely with Michael Broad in connection with a number of cases over the past several years. What most impressed me about Michael is his commitment to his clients. In no instance did Michael lose sight of the fact that his work was on behalf of a person whose interests and concerns deserved the highest consideration. When the situation required working the extra hours, Michael did not hesitate to do whatever it took on behalf of his client. Michael’s concern for his clients reflected his natural regard for people. He is warm, personable and has a good sense of humor. And, above all, he knows how to listen.”
-Eric Schenk, Esq., Mill Valley, California.
“I have worked with Mike since October of 2002. As an attorney myself, I know how important it is to clients that their attorney respond to request for information and act promptly on legal assignments. My experience with Mike has consistently been that he is very responsive, very prompt in communicating and congenial to a fault. If your need help with a legal problem, he will help you solve it; if you need to plan for the future, he’ll guide you; if you are a human being, he’ll treat you like one. He is an attorney you’ll actually like. And yet he is vigorous in representing you and courageous if the going gets tough. He is an advocate, a counselor, and to boot a genuinely nice guy.”
-Stephen Kent Ehat, Esq., Lindon, Utah.
