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

I just finished working with Brad Micklin and his law firm to do my parent's wills, POA's, and healthcare directive. Brad goes above and beyond when it comes to providing for the needs of his clients. Any questions, he is available with a response within minutes. I highly recommned Brad and his wonderful staff for any estate planning, divorce, or family law needs.

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.

Brad was referred to me by a good friend . He took the time to listen to my case in the first interview and let me know, without a doubt, if it had any success in court. He assured me that he would not take a case unless it had a fair and good chance in court, and would tell me when to pull out if the cost of the case out weighted the result.
He was honest and upfront about the pros and cons of my case and was not misleading in any way.
He made himself available and returned calls promptly. He took the time to answer my questions and explain procedure.
He demonstrated concern and compassion when I needed it most.
He had excellent knowledge of his profession and had good relationships and history with the judges in the Essex County court system
If anyone is looking for a compassionate, knowledgeably and professional law firm...Micklin Law group is for you.
His staff worked hard and I would use Micklin law group

I hired Brad to take care of a parenting time issue when my daughter's father moved to California. He is extremely experienced and knowledgeable while at the same time kind and understanding. He was always available, and returned my phone calls and text messages promptly, even on the weekend.

Brad was my sister's divorce attorney. When she passed away unexpectedly (without a will), he was on top of every detail in making a difficult process less traumatic on our family. He is a stellar professional, but above all, his warmth and kindness have helped to make this tragedy bearable. I have spoken with him well outside of the normal hours of 9 to 5, and couldn't ask for a better representative and counselor as we go through the probate process.

Brad Micklin assisted me through, first a temporary and then a final restraining Order. Mr. Micklin's knowledge and experience with my difficult and unique situation, is one that i don't believe could have been achieved with a positive outcome with another Attorney and definitely not one I could have achieved or endured all alone. Mr. Micklin was professional and assertive in the pursuit of insuring justice and most importantly, my safety. He not only escorted me to file for the temporary restraining order he actually filled out the request forms for me because the hand I write with was broken. Mr. Micklin's kindness and understanding to my sensitive and painful ordeal was above and beyond a service you can just pay for. I recommend any one who needs to hire an attorney for a domestic situation, to only consider his firm. Words can not express the gratitude and most of all the over all feeling of safety I have now, for my children and I.

I thought Brad Micklin was a excellent lawyer. Brad and his office were friendly,knowledgeable, and communicated very well. I received e-mails on everything that was happen never had to wondered. If I did not understand something I would just call and he when explain it to me. But if there was something that required a phone then that's what I would receive. If you are looking for a good Family law attorney I would tell someone to call Brad.

I hired Brad for a domestic abuse case, which turned into a divorce. I had interviewed a few attorney's prior to Brad, but no one gave you the sense of security like Brad does. He listens to your questions and concerns, never rushing you out the door. He will never force you to make a decision that you are not comfortable with, but will give you sound advice. His communication is like no other, he is available 24/7 which is practically unheard of. I can't leave out his paralegal Jacqueline, and associate Rachel, who are both exceptional people. I was so pleased with the handling of my divorce case that I hired Brad again most recently for a relocation. Brad was my rock throughout the process, because I was terrified I would not be able to move with my family out of state. But I did!! In all sincerity if you are looking for a caring professional attorney with personalized attention, then hire Brad and his team you will not be disappointed I promise!

I first met Brad Micklin one year ago looking for advice about a divorce. He took his time with me and gave a brief history of who he was and asked me about my expectations and what I was looking for. Brad Micklin cares for his clients and spends a lot of time helping to acheive the goals we set. From day one he was open and honest about what he does and how he performs his job.
Whenever there was a question to be asked, he always answered promptly and his responses were easy to understand.
He strives to get the most he can but always respects your wishes.
I found it amazing that when my divorce was finalized, I received a phone call from Brad the next day to see how I was doing. It made me feel that he truely cared.

Brad handled my recently-completed divorce proceedings. While I am extremely pleased with the final outcome and the decision of the judge, I have held Brad in very high regard from the very outset.
Throughout my dealings with him, Brad was attentive to my needs and concerns. He was always patient with my questions, always taking the time to answer them thoroughly. Beyond that, he was available day or night, even going the extra step of having a separate private cell phone for clients only.
His legal team was well versed in the details of my case. This allowed them to keep me up-to-date as it moved its way through the system.
Brad was understanding and exceptionally thorough in the dealings with both me and the case. At the trial, he was perfectly prepared and presented, a testament to his years of experience. He never got rattled, was composed and always spoke with the utmost confidence. Brad had his strategy and stuck to it – much to my pleasure. He knew exactly what questions to ask and how to ask them, in my opinion running circles around the defense.
If you are in need of an exceptionally qualified practitioner of family law, you will not find one better than Brad Micklin.

I am very pleased with Brad and his team and would highly recommend his services. I have been through a bitter child support battle with my ex but Brad and his team have been very supportive and successful in obtaining favorable results. During my most recent hearing, the judge said that while he did not normally award legal fees in child support cases, my case was unique- the judge went on to even commend Brad and his team. I can't thank Brad's office enough for always being available- even on a few late evenings- to assure me that everything was being taken care of.
