Customer Reviews

I hired Mike Ayotte to help me fight a communications company after they actually took money from my account unlawfully. I honestly thought it was going to be a David vs Goliath kind of battle with little hope of recovering my funds. But Ayotte was unrelenting. I recovered every cent they took plus the arbitration fee I originally paid. He’s highly intelligent, he knows the law and he knows how to fight firm and fair. If you need someone with tenacity, talent and professionalism, he’s your man.
