Engaging Mr. Micklin to represent me was a terrible decision; he is the embodiment of all the things that make people view some lawyers in a bad light. Prior to my court date I spent a considerable amount of time providing him with the facts relevant to the hearing agenda (and was over billed for that time) but, when we appeared in court, Mr. Micklin was totally unprepared to argue my case. As a result he made an incredible and inexcusable error that caused a major setback to my position. His fees are exorbitant and his billing practices are questionable, bordering on unethical. I performed an Internet search and I found numerous posts/complaints about Mr. Micklin almost identical to mine. I have submitted formal complaints to the NJ Bar Association detailing Mr. Micklin’s incompetency and billing practices.

For the past 5 months Mr. Brad handled a complicated FRO case for me in Union County Supreme court involving child custody, international relocation, and criminal allegations made by my soon to be ex-wife.
Today he successfully resolved it by obtaining a dismissal of the restraining order filed against me.
Why he is the best family lawyer you can hire:
Dedication: This man answers you at 1 am, 5 am, saturday, sunday, christmas.... you get the point...
Meticulous: His attention to detail and presence of mind in court is unmatched. (I have seen numerous other lawyers in court in these past 5 months)
Knowledgeable: He has a full, 360 degree grasp of family court law. There is nothing that he does not know in family matters. There were instances where he corrected the judges and they commended him for it.
Articulation: Let me put it really simple. He knows when to argue and when to be humble. The judges love this quality and respect it.
Passion: He treated my case as if it was his. When I went to him seeking an Order to Cause to stop my wife from absconding internationally with my child, his associate Rachel acted immediately and successfully stopped them from leaving and had the passport confiscated that same evening. (Mind you, his associate is as good as him in this category and so is his entire staff) These people get things done in minutes, not days or weeks.
Patience: From start to finish, my dad and I have asked him 126 questions with permutations. Do the math, he answered all of it without ever loosing his cool.
Cost: Can you set a price on your child?
I have my daughter today because of his passion and dedication.
No matter what you do in life, do it with passion.

Brad and his team are professional, responsive, and reliable. Brad pays attention to his clients' interests and needs. He met with me before taking on my post-divorce case to understand the issue and what I needed from him. He and Alyssa Musso, another attorney at the firm, kept me informed and guided me throughout the process. I am very satisfied with the results and I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Micklin and his team were exceptionally resourceful in finding a solution to my very long standing problem. I had retained Brad initially in 2006 through 2007 and then again in 2011 as circumstances changed to address a dispute with my ex-wife relating to on-going support payments. The gap in time was managed extremely well by Brad who quickly digested the then current circumstances and identified a strategy to address the matter. This was a very complex case that involved all levels of the judicial system in Somerset county. He had clean accurate files that allowed him to handle the history perfectly and educate the new judge on the bench as to the facts of the case. Ultimately, his (and his team’s) focus and perseverance on solving the problem, outside the noise of the defendant and her counsel, lead to winning positions in the Court and ultimately lead to a final and permanent settlement of all historical, current and future matters. I believe Brad and his team worked very effectively, removing emotion from the equation to facilitate this settlement. They never let my emotions of the matter disrupt their focus to the factual basis of the situation and worked toward a solution. Even when the opposing counsel demonstrated some behaviors that could be perceived as unethical they stayed the course and got the resolution we needed. Throughout the process I experienced financial challenges but I never felt their service level declined because I was delayed in making a payment. I NEVER felt like a billable hour client, Brad and his team were always available to take my call. The fact is I have a new life because of Brad and the team and I will be forever grateful for their service.

Brad and his team were responsive, professional, and supportive during a very difficult time. I felt confident that they had my best interest in mind. I have heard nightmare stories from people about their attorney's and how they "got screwed." Brad is very client focused and he makes sure you are comfortable with the final outcome. Brad and Rachel both present very well in court. They were well prepared and confident. Overall, a very good experience considering the circumstances.

Brad Micklin is an excellent lawyer with compassion and knowledge. When I hired Brad Micklin I was scared and in the dark about an estate situation - Mr. Micklin took immediate action putting me at ease and like a "legal taser" rendered the adversary "powerless" and shown a spotlight on many crooked hidden deeds that had been going on while I was kept in the dark. I was finally protected and had "legs to stand on". Thank you Mr.Micklin! The best! Conley Parker

Brad and his office were excellent when it came to keeping me up to date with the case and letting me know what to expect. he was very honest from the begining and provided excellent, caring and detailed attention to my case. He has a life client from us. He was very sensitive to our needs and his staff is also very caring and attentive. I would hire him again without hesitation. I am very satisfied with the out come he was able to deliver and he protected me and what I was entitled to. He did not only earn a life time client but also a friend. I don't see a need to look for any other lawyer to represent me or to hire for my needs

My husband and I worked with Brad Micklin to review and update our estate planning. Brad and his team are professional, knowledgeable and customer focused. They took the time to answer our questions and completed everything in a timely matter. We have some upcoming legal needs and will turn to Brad to support us with those as well.
