Michael John Halaiko
Miles & Stockbridge P.C. has four operating principles that guide its work: “We are client-focused; we are members of a unified, winning team; relationships matter; and we make a difference in our communities,” says Michael John Halaiko. “Our core values and principles are our reason for being. Most law firms have them; we strive to live them. They define how we represent ourselves, how we treat our clients and how we treat each other.” Outside the firm, Halaiko is passionate about his work for Gorilla Doctors, a conservation organization providing life-saving veterinary care to the wild gorilla population of Rwanda, Uganda and the Congo.

“Edwards & Hill was in the middle of a tough negotiation on a contract, and it came down to the wire. Mike made himself available while at the airport with his family, while they were visiting with relatives, over the weekend and late at night, and turned around the final agreement in less than a day. We got the agreement signed and have a contract that is fair and gives us what we need to be successful on the project. We couldn’t have done it without him. Working with Mike has given me a level of trust that makes me comfortable calling my attorney for advice, as well as peace of mind.” – Tony Hill, Managing Partner, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture
