Working with Michele Davos has given me and my family the confidence that if the worst - or just the bumps of life - befall us, we are protected. More than that, she has ensured that we breathe easily all the rest of the time. As a lesbian couple with a new child in a changing landscape of marriage equality it is difficult to know what we need to do to ensure we have full protection no matter where we are and to anticipate what protections we will need as the legal landscape continues to shift. Michele offers not only great legal advice, she is at the top of her field and can offer top notch guidance on the possible changing policy landscape and anticipate the legal protections we will need in various eventualities. I have and will continue to recommend Michele to many friends - gay and straight - as someone who will put the best interests of their family first.

I have been a client of Michelle's for 20+ years. 2014 found me in a very stressful situation. Michelle and her staff offered great, compassionate advice and followed through with a winning legal strategy. It felt great to have smart, caring people in my corner. I’m very happy with the way Michelle handled everything!

My wife and I came to Michele after being let down by another estates lawyer. She was patient, kind, responsive, and expert on all the various elements we needed to prepare for our estate package. She and her team helped us through the process efficiently and effectively, and we feel like our affairs are in excellent order having worked with Michele. I could not recommend her more highly.

Michele and her team were instrumental with our adoption! We were feeling frustrated and defeated in our journey to have a child. After one visit with Michele we were optimistic and excited. She pointed us in the right direction and was there for us when we needed her. We are extremely grateful to her and all of her staff. We can't recommend the Zavos Juncker Law Group enough!!!

Michele Zavos and her group have helped me with two adoptions in the last 2 years. The day I met Michele she was returning from a long trip and agreed to meet on a Saturday morning. When I walked in to her office she made me feel so welcome. I was treated as if I was a valued friend she had just welcomed into her home. The entire staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable of adoption law. I was always kept me well informed and happy to say both adoptions have been completed successfully. Thank you Michele and team. You truly are a blessing.

I have had the benefit of working with Michele on both my personal needs - second parent adoption - and as a resource for my clients. Her work is consistently excellent, and her knowledge of family law, especially as pertains to LGBT family law, is deep and broad. Because she has decades of experience, and been hands-on through the dizzying legislative changes regarding LGBT law, her knowledge is second to none. Her documents are clearly written, and hit all the points I look for as a financial advisor seeking good estate planning for my clients, straight or gay. I have found her judgment to be very trustworthy because of the depth of her experience, and I tell my clients - just do what Michele tells you!

I highly recommend Michele Zavos and her team. We turned to Michele Zavos to represent us in our second-parent adoptions and to prepare our wills, powers of attorney and other legal documents. She and her team were extraordinarily helpful. They answered all our questions quickly, accommodated our schedule, fielded our panicked call from the hospital when there was a glitch with the birth certificate, and solved the underlying bureaucratic problems. She kept us posted on changes in the law and then made the process of adoption go smoothly. Michele’s passion for her work has helped shape the law, and her kindness makes her clients feel like friends.

Michele and her team have been extremely helpful and supportive of our family. We've worked with her and the law group through two infant adoptions and established estate planning documents. As a gay family our circumstances were a bit different (before the overturning of DOMA) than others, so special considerations needed to be taken. Michele was extremely helpful, KNOWLEDGEABLE, and provided us with some needed education along the way.
One thing that I admire about Michele is that she is actively engaged in the changing/creating of familiy laws and not just practicing law. Her active participation and legal analyses in this area makes her that much more experienced and credible to benefit the firm's clients.

Michele and her responsive, smart, energetic, caring team helped me and my family navigate the waters of domestic partnership, wills and medical power of attorney and adoption with expert skill, unwavering patient persistence and professionalism. The adoption, in particular, showed us just how lucky we were to have found Michele Zavos. Her passion for justice and for legal protection for families and for gay families specifically is inspiring. We knew that, if there was a way to provide our family legal protection in a state (Virginia) that goes out of its way to deny such protection Michele would find it...or create it. I am proud and relieved to say that my son and his two moms are a family that is now recognized nationwide because of Michele's groundbreaking work in the District of Columbia court system on our behalf. I don't know why you would work with anyone else if you're serious about getting the best advice and advocacy for yourself or your family. Thank you, Michele!!
