We retained Ms. Everist to help us update all our estate documents, including wills, powers of attorney, and health care surrogate designations. She was totally professional in all our dealings with her. The work was done promptly, accurately, and at a reasonable cost. I would strongly recommend her for similar work.
We hired Ms. Everist of the Clarie Law Firm to represent us in our attempt to counter the State of Florida. The State filed a motion to change the custody of a year-old foster child who had been with us since birth. At no time did it appear that the State had the best interest of the child in mind. With less than a month to prepare, Ms. Everist and her co-counsel, Ms. Peggy Senentz, put the petal to the metal. Ms. Everist was exceptionally knowledgeable, and thoroughly put together an argument that easily prevailed in the 6th Circuit Court. The hearing itself was lengthy, requiring a day and a half of testimony and arguments. Ms. Everist demonstrated superb court presence and demeanor, even in the face of dire tactics by the opposing attorney. She then followed up for the next three months as we slogged through the obstacle course that concluded with our successful adoption of the child. I would heartily recommend her for similar cases.
I have known Misa throughout her career as an attorney. Her integrity is second to none. She is well devoted to her clients, each of whom are guaranteed to receive highly competent work from a passionate attorney. I have assisted Misa with a variety of cases and have always been impressed by her creativity and foresight. I have also referred several, very satisfied, clients to Misa and will continue to do so without hesitation!
