Michael Robbins was my attorney for about a year and half for post divorce issues. A different attorney handled my divorce. Michael was just ok when handling basic issues that did not require much "fight". However, when the issues got more complicated and the opposing attorney got tough, he cowered. Michael made suggestions to me that were not in mine or my children's best interest, such as, suggesting that my ex and I split the cost of health insurance for the minor children, lowering child support, and modifying an income tax return exchange that was written into the divorce settlement agreement. The opposing attorney was attempting to redo the divorce and Michael was more interested in pushing me to renegotiate the various issues rather than fight to keep the already stellar divorce judgment and settlement intact.
I lost trust in Michael over the year and half. The professional relationship ended following a two-day trial that resulted in making a mess of an already messy and complicated divorce. I promptly rehired my original divorce attorney who then put the pieces back together again. Overall, Michael and I argued and disagreed on many issues. There were several times were I asked Michael as to who's side he it was unclear who's best interest he was representing.
Michael Robbins was the best lawyer for my divorce. Always available , immediate returning phone calls and extremely easy to work with. Very helpful and thinking beyond my questions.
