Freda (Nov. 2022)
Excellent advice on non-compete
“Matt quickly and efficiently advised me in a time-sensitive manner on a non-compete and its interplay with a severance agreement as I was about to transition to a new company. He explained the different parts and how they affected my options going forward, and offered several paths that I could pursue. I was senior enough in the company to have restrictions on where I could go as there were questions about how the two companies competed in the same general segment...”

Sandra (Apr. 2021)
“Eight years ago, my company was faced with a very challenging and complex labor issue. In particular it dealt with an unfunded union pension plan. Through Matt's experience, broad network of labor and legal experts, Matt was able to coordinate a solid team to create a quality solution to a very challenging issue.”

Professional, thorough and an impeccable work ethic
“I have retained Attorney Miklave over the last 20 years on a variety of potentially litigious issues. An experienced advocate and counselor, Matt has consistently offered sound practical advice and great insight into very complex issues. Matt has never told me what I "want" to hear ... he tells me what I "need" to hear (sometimes a bitter pill) and then offers realistic alternatives on how best to remedy the volatile situation. I trust Matt and highly recommend him.”
Martha (Apr. 2021)
