Client Reviews

Michelle represented me in a family law custody case in 2014-2015. She was knowledgeable, helpful, responsible, and always kept me well informed. She gave me great advice from day one and was always extremely truthful and direct. She managed her time/my money effectively and in a fair way, never charging frivolously or wasting her time/my money on things that were not of importance. She was always extremely well organized and always filed my paperwork on time. She was hard working and dedicated to doing everything she could to help me. The advice she gave me was always extremely helpful and came from a wealth of knowledge and experience. When it came to litigation, Michelle was on point. Nothing got past her in the court room. She was great about asking the right questions at the right time in the right way and she was a fierce litigator who fought to get her point across.
Michelle had a great paralegal who didn’t waste time and provided useful assistance on a regular basis. Her price is fair and she is great at keeping you informed about how your money is working for you. Most of all, Michelle really cared about my case. She had a true desire to help me and did all that she could to get me what I was asking for. I highly recommend the services of Michelle and will definitely use her again in the future.
