His approach

For clients, Michael is a 'trusted advisor'. He is attentive to their interests, thoughts and wishes. "It is important that a lawyer is not only technical, but above all can offer a listening ear. I take the time to get to know my clients."

In addition, Michaël looks beyond the legal conflict. He also pays attention to the emotional underlying aspects. "I often handle cases where emotions and feelings play a major role. Because of my interest in the psychology behind a problem, I can often deduce what causes the problem. As a result, I quickly reach a solution to the legal conflict."

Michaël also stands out for his experience and expertise. He has more than 25 years of experience within the legal profession. His knowledge of procedural law and litigation strategy is extensive, which comes in handy when negotiating. In doing so, he enjoys taking on challenges. "I am competitive. Clients need a lawyer who does his utmost for a case. Someone who ensures that the problem is solved and that the client can walk out feeling better."
