    • I recommend Michael Hines.

    Could not have had a better experience. I called this attorney after hours on a Friday and he called right back - we met that Monday and had all my matters taken care of within a week. His experience speaks for itself - a former police officer and state prosecutor - he sees the BIG PICTURE - and he explains that picture to you. You won't find a better lawyer but more importantly a better person to help you with your legal needs, I was fortunate to have worked with Michael Hines!

    • I recommend Michael Hines.
    • I hired Michael 1-6 months ago.
    • Michael handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Michael did an excellent job with my case. With out getting into the specifics, he was able to get the judgement I wanted. He and his staff were always friendly and communicated frequently and kept me up to date. I hired him approximately three months ago. I have no reservations recommending him to everyone I know.

    • I recommend Michael Hines.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Michael is a great attorney up to date on current laws. Michael has defended me against a "Rambo style" attorney and an ex who has used five other attorneys. He manages his time well. Knows his way around the court and is a pit bull in any depo or confrontation. He is an honest, hardworking, well respected family man and attorney. His staff is a dream and communication is excellent. I would not have placed my child's custody in anyone else's hands.

    • I recommend Michael Hines.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Michael handled my Divorce in 2006/7 - from the beginning, he and his staff were able to listen carefully to my requirements, were open and available for discussion throughout the case, were very knowledgeable concerning different options and provided excellent feedback throughout the divorce. Michael knew how the court system worked, knew personally the judges and opposing counsel, and was able to reach an agreeable situation that was satisfactory to myself and opposing counsel. I have used Michael twice before in other cases outside the divorce, and he has always provided excellent service.

    • I recommend Michael Hines.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Michael Hines is an excellent attorney who consistently impressed me with his knowledge of the law, experience in working within the local court system (which is very important) and his attentiveness to my case. As a fellow attorney, I immediately knew that hiring Michael was the right choice to guide me through a very difficult period. I would not hesitate to hire him again or to recommend him to anyone who is dealing with family or criminal law issues.

    I've had Mr. Hines as my attorney the last 19 months and in that time he's represented me on various cases involving family law. He keeps
    me informed on the 3 cases that are opened. I've been in the courtroom with Mr. Hines and he really knows his way around one which puts me at ease during a very trying time. He has a excellent staff working for him and they've been very helpful when I needed anything.
