Last year I hired Sarah to handle my custody battle with my ex-wife. Before a friend put me in touch with her, I was in pretty desperate shape. I had made some prior mistakes in my life that I thought might prevent me from seeing my children- mistakes that I was working very hard to correct and move past. My ex-wife's uncle is an attorney who's been practicing in the area for over 30 years, and she was determined to fight me so that I would be left without any parenting time. I knew I couldn't go it alone, but I was feeling very anxious and worried about who I could trust to defend my rights. When I spoke to Sarah for the first time on the phone, she was very understanding and put all of my worries to rest. Having dealt with hundreds of cases like mine over the years, Sarah listened to my story intently, making sure she understood all of the facts. She then carefully explained to me what our strategy would be. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the law, her familiarity with the courts, and her enthusiasm and optimism regarding our chances. Not only was I awarded equal parenting time, but I also managed to renegotiate the terms of my alimony and child support that was fair. It was something I felt strongly about, but I never thought it was a realistic expectation...until Sarah made it happen. I've been represented before in other matters by other lawyers, and while the outcomes were generally positive, I never felt like I was fully in the loop until I hired Sarah. She kept me up to date on my case on a consistent basis which really helped to settle me down. While she was never able to make promises or give any guarantees regarding our outcome, I still felt more and more confident with every step we took because of the continual communication she and her office provided me. I don't know where I'd be without her help. I am able to see my children now, and that is all that matters to me. I couldn't be more grateful for everything that Mrs. Steslicki has done for me and my kids. I would recommend her to everyone!
Beware of hiring this attorney. I had a child custody case with her firm. I had an associate of hers represent me from the beginning. I paid her $7,500 to her. When I got the bill I was charged $200 an hour to talk to her secretary. I was charged for a deposition that never happened. When I asked for paper work for these charges after I dismissed her I was told to never call her office again.
I would not recommend Ms. Steslecki at all. She will take your money and do nothing for you. Very unprofessionable and the rest of her office staff too. I was going through a custody case for my son and lost my son.
Ms. Steslicki spoke to me once regarding a letter I directed to her for failing to file a motion and having to reschedule a divorce twice; in the Default Judgment, the heading is Wayne County but the hearing is noted in the judgment as being held in Mt. Clemons, Macomb County; an eviction notice was sent to me and not to the tenant, with a notation that I should call her about it! The process server sent to deliver the divorce notice, left the papers on the porch and when I opened the letter, it was addressed to a Mr. Miller and not tome or my wife. The divorce was on March 6th and I received a bill that day not from her but from an attorney I did not know, but she refused to file an eviction stating I was delinquent on payment and I had the bill for only 3 days! This was a terrible experience and unprofessional.
I hired Mrs. Steslicki for a divorce in which I only spoke to her one time and that was the day I retained her. She neglected everything that I wanted. She also didn't represent me the way she should have. I got told by her receptionist that if I went to my own divorce hearing I'd be arrested. Very poor communication from her.
Lets cut to the chase, Ms. Steslicki won't be the cheapest lawyer in the book. I'm a firm believer that you will receive what you pay for. This couldn't be more true with Ms. Steslicki. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding my felony charge. Ms. Steslicki knew every arguable aspect of my case and was not afraid to argue them. If punctuality, stern professionalism and most important, communication are what you are looking for, look no further. Ms Steslicki believes in your rights and will fight for them. Truly amazing, thanks again Sarah.
I was facing some jail time from one of Oakland County's toughest judges when it comes to DUI sentencing. Sarah was calm and professional throughout the entire process. She made me aware of the circumstances and potential outcomes. She stood her ground with the judge for me and was very effective delivering the facts and putting me in a favorable light. I was able to avoid jail although I saw a number of other folks with lesser offenses get sentenced to jail time that day. Thanks to Sarah, I avoided jail and was able to keep my job. She did amazing work in the courtroom for me!
I tell all of my friends and family about Sarah Steslicki. She handled my divorce, and made me sleep at night knowing I was being taken care of. Sarah had my best interest and knew so much about Michigans divorce procedures. I was very worried being a male in Michigan going through a divorce, but Sarah set my mind at ease. I was kept in the loop and felt like I was treated like a million dollar client. If you are in need of a great attorney, here she is..
Ms. Steslicki handled my divorce, and I couldn't be happier with the results. She familiarized herself with my case immediately, answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns, directly. I now have custody of my son thanks to her diligence and expertise. Extremely competent and compassionate. I'd reccomend her without reservation.
I hired Sarah Steslicki to handle a traffic violation. She was very efficient and competent. She was able to answer all of my questions and was very knowledgeable. Sarah was able to calm my nerves and genuinely cared about my concerns. I would recommend Sarah Steslicki to anyone, for any circumstance.
