Note from Michael’s Best Friend:
Michael refuses to say it. . .so I will. I have known Michael since 2000, and we have been close friends ever since. What I observe in Michael’s life is a wave of positive influence in all his relationships. Wherever he goes, people are changed and blessed. He is such a gifted man, with discernment in observing people, and using that for the benefit of the other person – it’s remarkable! Even more remarkable is Michael’s concern for people, because of his absolute love and devotion to Christ. He is my hero and friend. If I were called on to select one person from the 7 billion on the planet to help me overcome an insurmountable problem, it would be Michael Kinser. ~ Paul

Michael Kinser is a GIFTED COUNSELOR & fantastic Advocate! Mr. Kinser was a ray of hope to my family during a time when our options appeared to be limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed near on impossible. Not only was he able to defend us from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. I am eternally grateful for his service. ~ Aly
