Attorneys

Michael R. Gareau

Michael has vast experience in many aspects of the law since beginning practice in 1967. His practice as a municipal attorney beginning in 1973 involved many issues including zoning, civil rights actions, complex litigation, civil service, labor negotiations and land acquisition. On the private side at the same time, his practice became centered on business formation, acquisition and sale of land and commercial transactions. Closely associated with that practice are issues of Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts for his clients.
