I have aquired legal advise on two occasions from Michele Hobby. In both instances she appeared to be genuinely interested in my situation and what she could do to help. She was quite knowledgeable and quick to respond to the first situation and very conscientious and quick to respond with her research on the second. She has impressed me as a caring person which in cases dealing with family matters, such as mine, is an important quality for a lawyer to have. I would recommend her to any of my friends, family or aquaintances.

I had been married for 25 years, and for the last 5, my husband and I had been separated. Even during my separation, I did not think divorce would be beneficial for me. I suppose the thoughts came from fear of the unknown, but one day, I started to feel a strong urge to leave whatever was not functioning behind. I started my search on divorce, and after exploring books, websites, notes, and questions, my plan was to seek legal representation to draw up a divorce settlement. I wanted this process to be fast, harmonious, and the settlement to be fair. I had consultations with several attorneys in Lake County, and I become more and more discouraged. They caused unnecessary apprehension in me by talking about the process, always anticipating the worst. Each session was an honest presentation of what could happen, how the system works, how much money it will cost, and one lawyer even told me that I am better off not going through with it. I remember thinking: I am not a fighter, and I wanted to do this peacefully, but I could just hire someone to fight for me if it is the only approach today. However, my faith kept repeating: there must be another way. Do not give up-you have a plan, do not give up! So, I continued my search.
I signed the contract with Ms. Hobby the first time I met her during our consultation. The agreement states her services for a flat fee. During our meeting, she quietly listened to my situation, and patiently explained what could happen. This time, however, there were options for working together with integrity, helping each other respectfully, and negotiating successfully for a peaceful outcome. She was knowledgeable and precise, and during the time she talked to me, she reinforced my hope.
Creating the settlement took some time, but we worked together closely. Ms. Hobby provided exactly what she promised. She was generous with her time when I requested corrections or changed my mind on issues, and she was patient when answering my questions. She was flexible, concerned, accommodating to my mistakes, and with her support and guidance, she helped me hold my faith strong. I felt protected. As the uncontested settlement was signed by my husband last week and by me this week, I am filled with gratitude.
I believe Ms. Hobby is holding the space in the community for the ones who need legal representation and have faith in peaceful solutions. She can help the ones who have the courage to choose kindness, compassion, and understanding, even in the difficult proceeding of a divorce, as well as the ones who want to cultivate love and harmony because they believe that what they share, they strengthen.
